medical illustration of Medicine: lung: Alveolarmacrophages
There are 5 Alveolarmacrophages (gray) to be seen in the left half of the picture. These cells of the immune system move amoeba-like detecting inhaled foreign bodies in the bronchioles and pulmonary alveoli (gr.: macro= big, phagos=devourer).
The yellowish colored cells are single epithelium cells equipped with ciliated epithelia.
