Kidneys, suprarenal glands and posterior abdominal vessels, nerves and muscles
Right kidney and suprarenal gland dissected, close-up view
Dissection of the renal parenchyma has exposed the latex-filled arteries and veins within the kidney. Smaller vessels have been trimmed away. The suprarenal cortex has been removed near the center of the gland to expose the brownish medullary tissue as well as to demonstrate the tributaries of the right suprarenal vein within the medulla.
