Human kidney and adrenal gland. Resin cast showing the arteries in red and veins in blue. The ureters and renal pelvis (yellow) drain urine away from the kidney to the bladder. The adrenal glands (upper left) secrete their hormones directly into the renal artery. This specimen is unusual because it has two ureters rather than the usual one.
