Urinary system quizzes and labeled diagrams
The urinary system is a remarkably efficient machine, responsible for the production, transport, storage and excretion of urine - not to mention its role in filtering the blood, maintaining blood volume, blood pressure, blood pH and electrolyte balance. Phew.
It’s busy at work 24 hours a day - but how much do you know about the structures involved in each of the above processes?
From the kidneys to the ureters, urethra and urinary bladder, there’s lots to learn. In this article we’ll be walking you through the best way to learn the anatomy of the urinary system: practice tests, labeling quizzes and diagrams abound!
The best way to kick off your revision is with a urinary system diagram which clearly shows all of the structures found within. This gives you the opportunity to get a general feel of the appearance of each structure and their relations to the structures around them.
Take a look at the urinary system diagram labeled below. You’ll notice familiar structures like the bladder and ureters, as well as perhaps less familiar structures such as the renal artery and vein. Don’t worry - the next steps in your revision will help you memorise everything.
Now that you’ve spent some time looking over the urinary system labeled above, it’s time to try your hand at labeling the kidneys and others urinary system structures yourself. Enter: our labeling quiz! Click below to download a free unlabeled version of the diagram above and see how you go. You can also download the labeled version to make notes, if you’d like.
Practice test: Interactive quizzes
How did you fare with the labeling exercise? If you struggled to remember everything, no worries. That was just a warm-up. The secret to efficient learning and long term memory consolidation is a little trick called spaced repetition. Spaced repetition works on the basis that repeated exposure to a piece of information along with test questions will help you to meaningfully encode it in your memory. And it works!
