“The medulla is further divided into numerous sections called the medullary pyramids.”This region is known as the pelvis of the kidney. The medullary pyramids have urine dripping into the pelvis. The branches of the emerging arterioles of the renal artery usually go along the border found between the medulla and cortex. The smaller branches given off at right angles provided million or more of nephrons into the cortex of the kidney. Structure and function of nephrons/kidney tubules “Nephron is the basic structural and functional unit of the kidney.” The nephron consists of a tubule closed at one end, the other and opening into a collecting tubule.

Name the structures found within the mediastinum (seen on the x-ray). heart, esophagus, trachea, thymus, and several large blood vessels that enter and exit the heart. The mediastinum (located between the lungs in the thoracic cavity) contains the heart, thymus, esophagus, trachea, and several large blood vessels.
As we continue to make our way to the heart, we merge with the right external iliac vein. This is also another name for the femoral vein, and is also considered a deep vein in the lower leg. Its main responsibility is taking deoxygenated blood from the legs back to the heart. It is located right behind the inguinal ligament in the lower abdomen. The inguinal ligament support the area between the abdomen and the thigh (Inguinal Ligament, n.d.).
At the level of the fifth thoracic vertebra it divides into right and left pulmonary arteries, passing into the corresponding lungs. Within the lungs these arteries divide and subdivide into smaller arteries, subsequently becoming arteries and capillaries. It is between the capillaries and the lung tissue that the interchange of gases takes place. In each lung the capillaries carrying oxygenated blood join up and form two vein, so, two pulmonary veins from each lung, therefore becomes four pulmonary veins which return oxygenated blood to the left atrium of the heart. These are the only veins which carry oxygenated blood.

(Figure 1) Figure 1 Title Visceral Contents The Gastro intestinal tract is supported from the posterior abdominal wall via the Mesenteries’ part of the peritoneum The mesenteries’ are the doubled up layers of peritoneum that holds up the jejunum and the ileum for example. The position of the organs in terms of its relation to the peritoneum gives it a named classification so for example an organ that is immersed or completely surrounded by a layer of peritoneum will be called Intraperitoneal and if it is only touched by the peritoneum on its anterior border it will be called Retroperitoneal such as the kidneys. Which is not strictly in the A.C. – O yes they are, may be behind the peritoneum, but they are in the cavity if you define it according to the muscular walls. They may have started in the pelvic cavity, but the adult location is
The small intestines is around 7 meters, 20 feet long, it is quite smaller than the large intestines, hints the name. Different names identify different sections of the small intestines, in order from which food passes through. The duodenum, the jejunum, and the ileum, which is our destination site from the small intestines, after being in the stomach, food enters the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. It then enters the jejunum and then the ileum (the final part of the small intestine). In the small intestine, bile (produced in the liver and stored in the gall bladder), pancreatic enzymes, and other digestive enzymes produced by the inner wall of the small intestine help in the breakdown of
