In this work we used a virtual approach to study the human liver by three-dimensional geometrical models. We built the models through computer aided geometric modelling techniques starting from pictures taken during both real dissections and diagnostic medical imaging. The results show in a complete modular synthesis and with a schematic iconology the structural organization of this organ in a logic sequence of layers and topographic and spatial relationship among its components. This approach represents an amazing support to clinical anatomy for teaching and research.
