Blood vessels and surrounding structures of the kidney
Non-pathological veins and arterial vessels. The yellow structure coming off the kidney is the ureter.
The renal artery delivers blood to the kidneys, where it’s filtered and has the water-soluble impurities removed. The renal vein returns the filtered blood to the heart, and the waste products are transported to the bladder via the ureter.
