Renal Hilum

We just learned about the Connecting Tubule.

Another part of the kidney is the Renal Hilum.

We know renal means something to do with the kidneys.
Hilum means something that sticks in like an indentation.
On the side of the kidneys, the part where oval shaped kidney sticks in a little is called the Renal Hilum.

This is where the arteries, veins and ureter go into the kidneys.
