Lack of pointers.
By Luís F. on 03. November 2018 for Nephron

The sir Geoffrey explains very well but i find it difficult to follow the explination on the histalogic image due to the lack of pointing out the structures i am not sure if i am looking at the right thing and i am always at doubt. Pls use pointers and thx for the attention.

 
Great lecture! but there is small mistake in the quiz at the end.
By katelin S. on 03. November 2018 for Kidneys: Segments and Blood Supply – Kidneys and Suprarenal Glands

The lecture is great, really informative, loved it. The quiz has one of the questions as, what structure is NOT located within the sinus and the answer is given as ureter when the answer should be the calyx. As the ureter passes through the hilum and out the sinus, but the calyx does not exit the kidney.
