Heart and kidneys relate to each other in many ways, it is in some aspects a pump-filter type of relation. While the cardiologist may be asking the right question when referring to your kidneys well being, it will highly unusual for the renal ultrasound to be performed in a cardiology office. Would suggest confirming details before appointment.
