Hydronephrosis : A doctor ordered the test that found hydronephrosis. So he or she has information which I dont have. Why was the test ordered? Do you have an infection in the hyronephroiss . Do you need a urine culture to rule out a kidney infection? I am not sure without an examination and more details
