Anatomy A215 Virtual Microscopy


The ureters have walls with three principal layers. Use this virtual microscopic slide of URETER to identify the ureter and the following components:

  • The inner mucosa, including a surface of transitional epithelium and underlying areolar connective tissue.
  • Muscularis, containing smooth muscle, with inner layers arranged more longitudinally and outer layers more circularly.
  • The outer adventitia, which is formed from areolar connective tissue.
