  1. Urine forming structure of kidney
    Nephron
  2. Region of the kidney deep to cortex; contains collecting ducts
    Renal Medulla
  3. Extensions of renal cortex found in between renal pyramids
    Renal Columns
  4. Urine flowing through this structure drains into a minor calyx
    Papillary Duct
  5. Located between renal fascia and renal capsule
    Adipose Capsule
  6. Apex of renal pyramid
    Renal Papilla
  7. Urine flowing through this structure drains into the renal pelvis
    Major Calyx
  8. Vertical fissure in concave surface of kidney through which blood vessels and ureters pass
    Renal Hilum
  9. Covers outer surface of kidney
    Renal Capsule
  10. Dense irregular connective tissue that covers the adipose capsule and attaches the kidney to the abdominal wall
    Renal Fascia
  11. Receives urine from the major calyces
    Renal Pelvis
  12. Space within kidney that is adjacent to renal medulla, contains calyces and renal pelvis
    Renal Sinus
  13. Cup-like structure that is located in renal sinus that receives urine from openings of papillary ducts
    Minor Calyx
  14. Cone shaped structures located within the renal medulla
    Renal Pyramids
  15. Outermost region of the kidney, contains renal corpuscles
    Renal Cortex
  16. Detrusor muscle is the main muscle for this structure
    Urinary Bladder
  17. Region of the male urethra that passes through the prostate gland
    Prostatic Urethra
  18. Two openings in posterior urinary bladder wall
    Ureteral Openings
  19. Region of male urethra that passes through penis
    Sponge, Penile Urethra
  20. Area bounded by ureteral openings and internal urethral orific
    Trigone
  21. Voluntary skeletal muscle in urogenital diaphragm that allows passage of urine to exterior of body
    External Urethral Sphincter
  22. Carries urine from renal pelvis to urinary bladder
    Ureter
  23. Urine is excreted through this opening
    External Urethral Orifice
  24. Circular smooth muscle that involuntarily controls passage of urine from the urinary bladder to the urethra
    Internal Urethral Sphincter
  25. Anterior opening in urinary bladder that leads into urethra
    Internal Urethral Orifice
  26. Region of male urethra that passes through urogenital diaphragm
    Membranous Urethra
  27. Blood vessel that delivers blood to glomerulus
    Afferent Arteriole
  28. Blood from the efferent arteriole flows into this capillary bed
    Peritubular Capillary Bed
  29. Structure that surrounds glomerulus and collects filtrate
    Bowman's Capsule
  30. Section of renal tubule that descends into medulla
    Loop of Henle
  31. Capillary network within the renal corpuscle
    Glomerulus
  32. Structure composed of glomerulus and glomerular capsule
    Renal Corpuscle
  33. Blood vessel that drains blood from glomerulus
    Efferent Arteriole
  34. Capillary loops that extends from the efferent arteriole and run along loop of Henle of juxtamedullary nephrons
    Vasa Recta
  35. Trace the flow of filtrate and urine through the urinary system
    Glomerulus -> Capsular Space -> PCT -> Loop of Henle -> DCT -> Collecting Duct -> Papillary Duct -> Minor Calyx -> Major Calyx -> Renal Pelvis -> Ureter -> Urinary Bladder -> Urethra -> External Urethral Orifice
  36. Trace blood flow through the kidneys
    Renal Artery -> Segmental Artery -> Interlobular Artery -> Arcuate Artery -> Interlobar Artery -> Afferent Arteriole -> Glomerulus -> Efferent Arteriole -> Peritubular Capillary -> Interlobar Vein -> Arcuate Vein -> Interlobular Vein -> Renal Vein
