Renal echogenicity: Renal echogenicity is a sign of scaring or increased density of the kidney and implies underlying medical kidney disease. You should see a Nephrologist (Internest specializing in kidney disease) as soon as possible for a kidney workup. This will include urine and blood tests to ascertain whether you have a medical condition causing this.
