The liver contains four types of cells: Hepatocytes, Endothelial cells lining the sinusoids, Kupffer cells and Stellate cells.
The hepatic sinusoids appeared also of normal appearance with mild congestion was seen in some animals.
Hepatic stellate cells relay inflammation signaling from sinusoids to parenchyma in mouse models of immune-mediated hepatitis.
The immunohistochemical staining of the liver with anti CD68 antibody shows a normal number, distribution and immune density of CD68 positive phagocytic, characteristic Kupffer cells in the wall of the hepatic blood sinusoids.

Fibrosis along the central vein and sinusoids (highlighted by Masson trichrome stain) were the main findings significantly more common in cardiac hepatopathy than in Budd-Chiari syndrome (original magnification X200).

This modality of treatment remains in its infancy primarily due to the fact that many liver diseases progress to a fibrotic stage with significant change of liver parenchyma, vasculature, and sinusoids.
Change in normal liver architecture with dilated sinusoids may be due to loss of structural proteins.
Sinusoids showed variation in caliber, but lining was smooth and endothelial cells were visible.
In particular, it is well known that any discontinuities in a function reduce the rate of convergence of the Fourier series, so that more sinusoids are needed to represent the function with a given accuracy.
As such, two consecutive sinusoids with frequency difference [DELTA]f can then be separated by setting the window size as
