The interlobular bile ducts (or interlobular ductules) carries bile in the liver between the Canals of Hering and the intrahepatic bile ducts. They are part of the interlobular portal triad and can be easily localized by looking for the much larger portal vein. The cells of the ducts are described as cuboidal epithelium with increasing amounts of connective tissue around it.
