Normal: That reads that there is no disease or pathology or abnormal anatomy. It is a normal result.

Sounds: Normal from the limited information here. Need to follow up with your doctor who ordered the test to review any other results such as blood tests.

Yes, good: I suspect there is more to the report, since the radiologist often comments on the sonographic appearance of the liver and the size of the bile ducts, but the bottom line is the impression: Negative RUQ ultrasound. This means there was no disease identified during this exam. Follow up with the requesting physician for more advice. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
