The Genitourinary System

Image of the kidneys The urinary tract is a little like a plumbing system, with special pipes that allow water and salts to flow through them.

The structure of the urinary tract includes: the kidneys, two ureters, (tubes leading from the kidneys to the bladder), and the urethra, a tube leading from the bladder to the exterior of the body.

The Bladder

submitted by Dr. Gary Farr 9/27/2011
The urinary bladder is a hollow muscular organ forming the main urinary reservoir. It rests on the front part of the pelvic floor, behind the symphysis pubis and below the peritoneum. (The symphysis pubis is the joint in the hip bones in the front midline of the body.) The shape and size of the bladder vary according to the amount of urine that the organ contains.

The Kidneys - Advanced Version

submitted by Dr. Gary Farr 7/17/2003
The kidneys are bean-shaped, reddish brown paired organs, concave on one long side and convex on the opposite. They are normally located high in the abdominal cavity and against its back wall, lying on either side of the vertebral column between the levels of the 12th thoracic and third lumbar vertebrae, and outside the peritoneum, the membrane that lines the abdomen. We discuss the kidneys.

submitted by Dr. Gary Farr 6/24/2004
The Vaginosis Profile from Great Smokies Diagnostic Laboratory is one of the most comprehensive evaluations available. It features microscopy for every sort of organism by trained and experienced technicians with an advanced DNA probe for the most common causes of the condition. With a rapid, semiautomated DNA probe test to definitively identify clinically significant levels of Gardnerella, and Trichomonas, detection rates for these organisms can reach levels of 90% and greater in properly transported specimens.
