Anatomy of The Urinary Tract
What is the urinary tract?
The urinary tract is the urinary drainage system for removing wastes and extra fluid. The urinary tract includes
- 2 kidneys
- 2 ureters
- prostate in males
The urine flows from the kidneys to the bladder through tubes called ureters. The bladder stores urine until releasing it through urination. When the bladder empties, urine flows out of the body through a tube called the urethra at the bottom of the bladder. The prostate encloses the initial part of the urethra when it emerges from the bladder.
