Calcification Upper Pole Of Kidney Representing Calculus
What is a questionable punctate calcific density in the kidney, CT report says that. Also what is a 1.2 CM probable cyst in the lower pole of kidney?
Kidney abnormalities: "calcific densities" in the kidneys usually represent calcifications or stones, depending on any other associated findings they may have mentioned. Sometimes kidney tumorsay calcify, but they would have mentioned any finding concerning for this. Cysts are very common, and if they meet certain well defined criteria (bozniak classification), they are usually benign and need no further follow up. ...Read more
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure.

Punctate nonobstructing calcific fleck found on left kidney pelvis. I must control stone-mkg w/ Urocit-K. Will this fleck get bigger or pass?
Stone passable: If stone is described as punctate it is likely only a millimeter or two in diameter which makes it a good bet to pass if it moves into the kidney tube (ureter). If you are on Urocit K (potassium citrate) I assume that you have been diagnosed with a low citrate level and this medication supplements the level which can prevent certain calcium crystals from forming. Key is to have stone monitored, with good hydration ...Read more

Gallstones are observed unless they are causing abdominal pressure discomfort ; nausea after eating - then surgery. ...Read more

Calcified granulomas within my spleen, bilateral renal cysts, 4mm kidney stone and punctate calcifications in my pelvis, what would the underlying condition be?
Mostly normal: These are all trivial imaging findings. The old stuff in your spleen probably reflects a long-ago victory over an infection with histoplasmosis. Kidney cysts are trivial and very common. The calcium stuff in your pelvis is probably phleboliths which never cause trouble. I hope the kidney stone stays in place or can be managed. ...Read more
Renal sonogram of kidney for high BP showed no stenosis but showed a 4mm angiomyolipoma in the upper pole of kidney. Should I see a nephrologist?
Angiomyolipoma: A small angiomyolipoma of 4 mm does not require special care by a nephrologist. See a urologist. Be followed with ultrasound every 6 months to determine if it grows. An interventional radiologist can perform cryoablation of these or they can be removed surgically. ...Read more

See answer: The kidneys and bladder are normally visualized with a routine bone scan. Decrease visualization and activity generally reflects decreased renal function and an increase in activity commonly represents either obstruction or delayed excretion. You should discuss with the doctor who ordered the test whether he feels finding has any clinical significance. Most likely not? ...Read more

If you have a kidney stone blocking your tube and tests show only 10% funtion do you have to have your kidney removed or can it be saved?
Urologist: If the obstruction is successfully removed that kidney's function should improve significantly unless the damage done is irreversible. Usually a kidney is not removed unless there is malignancy or extensive abscess formation from infection or the damage causes recurrent infection. Your urologist will guide you. ...Read more
Yes, depends on seve: If the blockage is complete & urine backs up into the kidneys, you can get a condition called hydronephrosis. This can be detected on ultrasound due to the dilation of the ducts in the kidneys (like stepping on a garden hose- water backs up & bulges). Ultrasound can miss a kidney stone due to its location or size; however, it can detect the *effects* of a kidney stone, by which diagnosis is made. ...Read more
If I haven't passed my kidney stone would a kub show the stone still there? What are after effects after passing stone
Kidney stone: A kidney stone in the ureter may be seen on a plain film, but other radiographic modalities are better such as an IVP, CT scan, or ultrasound. You may have some blood in the urine as the stone passes through the urethral system. If you still have pain and have not passed the stone, follow up with your doc, as you may need lithotripsy or some procedure to break up the stone and allow it to pass. ...Read more
