What does fullness of bilateral renal collecting systems mean?

What does fullness of bilateral renal collecting systems mean?

Renal anatomy: The solid tissue of the kidney is divided into an outer cortex and inner medulla. The blood is filtered and urine and is produced here. Urine is emptied into the collecting system of the renal pelvis. The ureters then transport urine to the bladder. Prominence or enlargement of the collecting system can sometimes indicate obstruction to this outflow. Bilateral means it is seen on both sides. ...Read more

Mild fullness, usually within normal limits. Can signify minimal partial kidney obstruction from an anatomic narrowing, or from infection. Can also be from ureteral obstruction at bladder level, bladder neck ot urethra or bladder reflux or hight urine flow rate. ...Read more

Hi sir my brother having hyper echoic foci in right renal collecting system largest 1.2*0.6cm any problem with this result and what it is exactly sir?

This is: a relatively nonspecific ultrasound description, so there is no way to tell exactly what it is at this point. A CT or MRI may be necessary to evaluate further. It could be a kidney stone, benign mass, or malignant mass. ...Read more

2 sets of renal collecting systems compatible with cross ectopic kidneys. I still have 2 kidneys right?

2 sets of renal collecting systems compatible with cross ectopic kidneys. I still have 2 kidneys right?

Here is...: I assume the findings of kidneys are incidentally found in imaging studies for abdominal pain. Did the detailsed Hx pointing to the pain of renal origin? If not, I would take no action and leave it alone and see since in reality,nothing could be done about it.As to 2 sets,this may refer to complete duplicating system. Remember kidneys are the organ having highest rate of normal variation among... ...Read more

2 renal collecting systems. Cross fused ectopic kidneys. Healthy functioning? Should i watch intake of certain stuff? They work normally my doc says.

2 renal collecting systems. Cross fused ectopic kidneys. Healthy functioning? Should i watch intake of certain stuff? They work normally my doc says.

It's all good: Cross fused ectopia is usually a finding that has little clinical significance. Patients can have obstruction of the kidney drainage system. Patients may have hypertension based on artery compression due to the abnormal location of the vessels. No specific recommendations typically are made. I would in general limit nsaids and est a low sodium diet. If you see blood in urine see a doc. ...Read more

Pelvic CT for micro hematuria revealed mild prominence of renal collecting system in the calyces bilaterally. No obstruction. Meaning?

Urine is emptied into the collecting system, which begins at the calyces. Ultimately, the ureters transport urine to the bladder. Prominence or enlargement of the collecting system can sometimes indication obstruction to this outflow, which was not found. ...Read more

How can i have an 11mm calculus rt renal pelvis w fullness to the rt collecting system for a long time and it not be painful at all?

How can i have an 11mm calculus rt renal pelvis w fullness to the rt collecting system for a long time and it not be painful at all?

Only partial block: The reason for no pain is incomplete blockage to the UPJ(junction of ureter to renal pelvis). Sooner or later an 11mm stone will give trouble.You should get it taken care of.Good luck. ...Read more

Ct scan conclusion: 11 mm calculus rt renal pelvis w fullness to the rt collecting system. what does this mean and what should i do? there is no pain

Kidney stone: On CT we use the cutoff of 5 mm for stones that can be treated conservatively. Stones larger than this need to be removed. The "fullness" means the urine isn't passing into the bladder and it is backing up, causing the drainage tube to dilate. ...Read more
