Got it, it is the intravesical part of the ureter.
(commonest site of renal calculi).

Please correct me if that is wrong.

Those are the THREE anatomical narrowings of the ureter. I am asking which one of them is the narrowest! those are:\

1) The portion at ureteropelvic junction (where ureter joins renal pelvis).
2) The portion at pelvic brim (where ureter crosses over iliac vessels).
3) Intravesical portion (where ureter runs through the bladder wall)----- The NARROWEST.
