Renal medulla

Consists of the con shapes renal pyramids, which are in the renal cortex

4

Renal pelvis

Innermost par lot of the kidney that is a hallow chamber

5

Nephrons

Each kidney is composed of 1 million time tubules. They produce urine

Nephron capsule

Closed end of a nephron is pushed in on itself to form this. Filtration of blood occurs here. The inner layer of the capsule is composed of specialized cells that allow easy passage of molecules. Then we go to the proximal tubule

7

Proximal tubule

Lined by cells with many mitochondria and tightly packed microvilli
