Interventional radiologists (IRs) perform a myriad of image-guided interventions throughout the genitourinary system utilizing a wide range of imaging modalities for pre-procedure planning, intra-procedural guidance, and post-procedure follow-up, and approach the system via direct percutaneous, transarterial, and transvenous routes. Therefore, it is essential for IRs to have a complete understanding of male and female genitourinary anatomy, including vasculature and innervation, as well as of the normal appearance of genitourinary structures on various imaging modalities. This chapter will give a comprehensive review of the normal genitourinary system which can later be applied to pathophysiologic processes which will be discussed in subsequent chapters.
