Tendon fibres. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of tendon fibres. Some of the fibres have been teased apart. These fibres are made from collagen. The parallel alignment of the fibres make tendons inelastic but flexible. Tendons attach [F0012086] > Stock Photos | Royalty Free | Royalty Free Photos > Visualphotos.com

A Few Kidney Facts: higher blood flow than even the brain, liver or heart, reabsorb and redistribute 99% of the blood volume and only 0.1% of the blood filtered becomes urine, Each kidney is about 4 ½ inches long, weighs approximately 4 to 6 ounces, kidneys of a newborn baby are about 3X larger in proportion to body weight, volume of urine excreted daily approx 1000 to 2000 mL.

Each kidney contains thousands of glomeruli, tiny knots of blood vessels that filter large molecules out of urine. Fractal branching patterns in the circulation of blood inside the kidney ensure that the filtration process is as efficient as possible.
