A funnel-shaped structure that is formed at one end by the expanded upper portion of the ureter and at the other by the union of the calyxes of the kidney, which receive urine from the collecting ducts. Urine collected here is funnelled through to the ureter, to be collected in the bladder and then excreted.
The basin into which the urine formed by the kidneys is excreted before it travels to the ureters and bladder.
"Collecting funnel" deep within each kidney into which the kidney tubules drain filtrate.
a structure shaped like a funnel in the outlet of the kidney into which urine is discharged before passing into the ureter
The portion of the kidney that collects urine. The renal pelvis and the ureter, the tube that carries urine from each kidney to the bladder for excretion, allow the body to process and excrete urine. (Urology)
RE-nal PEL-vis The inner part of a kidney, where urine collects. 780
(REE-nawl PEHL-vihs) A membrane-lined basin within the renal sinus of each kidney.
The area at the center of the kidney. Urine collects here and is funneled into the ureter.
Funnel-like structure which collects urine from the kidney and delivers it to the ureter.
The basin at the base of the kidney that drains urine from the renal calyces and transports urine into the ureter, with which it connects.
That portion of the kidney where all the calyces with their infundibula unite to form a single hollow portion of the kidney, which collects to the ureter to transport urine.
The cavity in the centre of each kidney. Looks like a hand with short fingers. The renal pelvis tapers off into the ureter draining the urine downstream to the bladder.
the final collection point for urine in the kidney. From here it enters the ureter for elimination through the bladder
The renal pelvis is the funnel-like dilated proximal part of the ureter in the kidney.
