Figure 1

Schematic drawings of arteries of rat kidneys, illustrating the branching patterns of the different types of either the dorsal or ventral divisions of the renal artery. A: renal artery; V: the ventral branch of renal artery; D: the dorsal branch of renal artery; Cr: the cranial division of the renal artery; Ca: the caudal division of the renal artery; a: first interlobar branch from the renal artery for the cranial pole; b: second interlobar branch from the renal artery for the cranial pole; c: interlobar branches from the cranial division of the renal artery; d: interlobar branches from the caudal division of the renal artery; e: extrainterlobar branch from the renal artery for the opposite pole; f: extrainterlobar branch from the renal artery for the caudal pole.
