Roberta Cormier

The kidney is approximately 11–14 cm in length, 6 cm wide and 4 cm thick. The kidneys receive blood from the renal arteries, left and right, which branch directly from the abdominal aorta. Despite their relatively small size, the kidneys receive approximately 20% of the cardiac output.
