Study Notes

Kidneys Normal Anatomy

  • Kidneys are retroperitoneal organs, located between the peritoneum and back muscles.
  • Kidneys are situated lateral to the spine, bilaterally, and span from the level of T12-L4.
  • Each kidney has a lateral convex border and a medial concave border.
  • The superior, middle, and inferior poles are the three main divisions of the kidney.
  • The liver displaces the right kidney inferiorly, due to its anatomical position.
  • Morrison's pouch is a peritoneal space between the right kidney and liver.
