Kidney dissection

Kidney Dissection

Obtain a preserved sheep kidney.

  • Observe the kidney. You should notice adipose tissue (remnants of the adipose capsule) clinging to the renal capsule.


Kidney dissection

  • Dissected Kidney

  • 1.Renal Capsule

  • 2. Renal Cortex

  • 3. Renal Medulla

  • 4.Renal Pyramid

  • 5.Renal Pelvis

  • 6.Renal Column

  • 7.Renal Calyx

  • 8.Ureter


Kidney dissection

  • You should also notice a "pinched-in" area where the renal blood vessels and ureter are attached to the kidney. This is the renal hilus.


Kidney dissection

  • Remove the renal capsule by carefully cutting through it and grabbing the cut capsule with forceps.


Kidney dissection

  • Once the renal capsule is removed, you will be looking at the renal cortex

  • In order to more accurately identify each, separate the renal blood vessels from one another and from the ureter.


  • Kidney dissection

    • Generally, the tube with the most adipose around it is the ureter. Notice the histological differences (and similarities) between the renal arteries, renal veins, and ureter.


    Kidney dissection

    • Carefully make a frontal (coronal) section through the kidney.


    Kidney dissection

    • Identify as many parts of the internal structure of the kidney as possible (renal cortex, renal medulla, renal pelvis, etc.). Recall the reading and discussion of kidney function and think about this as you observe kidney anatomy.
