Duodenal bulb.: By itself, it means nothing. Ask your physician who ordered the test.
Dr. John Michel
Family Medicine 46 years experience
Not to worry: Patulous is only a generous duodenal bulb and is only demonstrating the anatomy. This means it is open or gaping. The overlapping is not bowls but bowels. I am not sure what is being referred to but would suggest this is not a term that sound concerning. Take the report and ask the doctor if anything else needs to be considered.

How does pyelonephritis affect the renal pelvis?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Bad effects on it: Acute pyelonephritis is an infection of the renal pelvis (collecting system) and the kidney as a whole. There can be kidney abscesses (suppurative necrosis), containing pus material. Kidney tubules are damaged by the infectious process, and may have "casts" of white blood cells and exudate. In the early stages, kidney glomeruli are not affected, but can get damaged if the infection continues.
