Primary functions of the liver The liver is the largest organ in the body. It is located below the diaphragm in the right upper quadrant of the abdominal cavity. An adult's liver weighs approximately 3 pounds and extends approximately from the right 5th rib to the lower border of the rib cage. The liver is separated into a right and left lobe, separated by the falciform ligament.

The liver as seen from the front. The liver is situated mostly in the top right portion of the abdominal cavity just under the diaphragm. It can be felt as a hardish mass just below the bottom right rib.
The liver, viewed from above, showing the left and right lobes separated by the falciform ligament The liver, viewed from below, surface showing four lobes and the impressions The liver is grossly divided into two parts when viewed from above — a right and a left lobe, and four parts when viewed from below left, right, caudate , and quadrate lobes. From below, the two additional lobes are located between the right and left lobes, one in front of the other. A line can be imagined running from the left of the vena cava and all the way forward to divide the liver and gallbladder into two halves. An important anatomical landmark, the porta hepatis , divides this left portion into four segments, which can be numbered starting at the caudate lobe as I in an anticlockwise manner.
