Anatomy of the Urinary System How does the urinary system work? The urinary system’s function is to filter blood and create urine as a waste by-product. The organs of the urinary system include the kidneys, renal pelvis, ureters, bladder and urethra.
[edit on Wikidata] The urinary system, also known as the renal system or urinary tract, consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and the urethra.
The urinary tract is the body’s drainage system for the eventual removal of urine. The kidneys have an extensive blood supply via the renal arteries which leave the kidneys via the renal vein.
