In [[anatomy]], the '''genitourinary system''' or '''urogenital system''' is the [[organ system]] of the [[reproductive organ]]s and the [[urinary system]].<ref>{{DorlandsDict|eight/000105290|genitourinary system}}</ref> These are grouped together because of their proximity to each other, [[Development of the urinary and reproductive organs|their common embryological origin]] and the use of common pathways, like the [[male urethra]]. Also, because of their proximity, the systems are sometimes imaged together.<ref name="urlUC Davis Department of Radiology - Genitourinary Radiology">{{cite web |url=http://www.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/radiology/specialties/genitourinary.html |title=UC Davis Department of Radiology - Genitourinary Radiology |work= |accessdate=2010-03-16}}</ref>
