The frontal section of the kidney indicates an outer region called the renal cortex and an inner region called the renal medulla. The renal medulla is made up of 5-8 renal pyramids. Nephrons are located in the cortex and medulla. Each pyramid has several renal tubules that create urine and drain into collecting ducts that terminate into a renal papilla.
Answer and Explanation: 1
The tissue between the renal pyramids is called the renal column. The renal column is an extension of a medullary region that contains blood vessels and connective tissues.
