Internal Structure of Kidney 03:

This is an image showing the internal structure of kidney. Internally, kidney is divided into renal cortex and renal medulla. Within the renal medulla there are cone shaped structures, called renal pyramids. Space between renal pyramids is known as renal column. Lower end of the pyramid joined with renal papilla. Each renal papilla is attached to a cup, or a small tube, called the minor calyx, which collects urine. Two or three of these minor calices merge to form major calyx. The major calices then converge into a funnel-like cavity called the renal pelvis. The movement of urinal fluid is shown here
