Location of Kidneys and Ureters
If you look at the picture of your spine, the kidneys are positioned at the Thoracic 12 and the Lumbar 1 just behind the 12th rib near the small of your back. There are two kidneys, a right and a left kidney. The kidneys are bean shaped, reddish brown colored organs about the size of a fist that are covered by a tough capsule of fibrous connective tissue, called a renal capsule. Masses of adipose tissue adhere to each kidney. The concave side of a kidney has a depression, where a renal artery enters. Connected to the kidneys are also ureters which look like small tubes about 25 cm in length and 5 mm in diameter, which also exit on the concave side and connect to the bladder.
There are three areas where the ureters are a bit narrower. This causes them to become obstructed by kidney stones more easily.
