medulla inner portion of kidney; made of segments: renal pyramids
renal pyramids in medulla; contain collecting ducts that drain urine to minor calyces; pyramids separated by RENAL COLUMNS
renal columns separate renal pyramids in medulla
minor calyces converge --> ____ --> ____ major calyces --> RENAL PELVIS
renal pelvis becomes... portion of kidney that narrows to become URETER
retroperitoneal position of kidney: within abdominal cavity, posterior to peritoneal cavity
males: major structures of pelvic cavity urinary bladder, prostate, rectum
females: structures of pelvic cavity ovaries, uterine tubes, uterus, vagina, bladder, rectum
testes lie within _______ scrotum
scrotum outside of pelvic cavity behind penis, contain testes
vas deferen tubes connecting testes to rest of male reproductive system by transporting sperm from EPIDIDYMIS --> URETHRA

corpora cavernosa paired upper chambers of penis; close in contact throughout penis, @ base, diverge to attach to inferior rami
corpus spongiosum 3rd chamber of penis, surround URETHRA when emerges from pelvis --> forms GLANS
glans at bottom/ tip of penis, formed by corpus spongiosum
uterine tubes = fallopian tubes in humans; 2 uterine tubes join to form body of uterus
cervix muscle ring= most inferior portion of uterus
vagina muscular tube that connects uterus to exterior; =birth canal & sex organ
labia majora skin-covered structure surrounding vulva (external genitalia)
