A bile duct is a channel that runs from the Liver to other digestive organs (such as the small intestine) and has the sole purpose of transporting Bile through the digestive system. Bile is a dark-green fluid which serves to aid in the digestion of Lipids in the small intestine. All bile ducts run from different parts of the liver and come together to form the common bile duct, which transports liver secretions to the intestines. The average size of a bile duct is roughly 6mm [1].
