The liver and the gall bladder are considered accessory organs of the small intestine.
The liver is a large, maroon-colored organ weighing about three pounds. It is found on the right side (anatomical right) of the body under the muscular diaphragm and protected by the ribcage. It drapes over the gall bladder and part of the stomach and small intestine. It is made up of four lobes, the left lobe, right lobe, quadrate lobe and caudate lobe.
