Impression   =  minimal lelft hydronephrosis  no  ureter  dilatation A 5MM nonobstructing left renal calculas bladder shows norma out l?

Here are some…: Minimal hydronephrosis could be just a radiologist's subjective impression, but may not be related with a 5-mm non-obstructing stone. However, the key point still lies on how to manage this 5-mm stone, which can be deduced by analyzing the past history of stone activity and balancing medical necessity and professional possibilities. So, consult urologist timely. ...Read more

Please explain what does transient dilation of right renal collecting structures mean?

Please explain what does transient dilation of right renal collecting structures mean?

Transient problem: The word "Transient" means lasting only for a short time. So, it appears that the dilation of the renal collecting structures was due to a problem that was not permanent and resolved. That resolution relieved the dilation. Ask the physician (P) who ordered the imaging studies for a more informed opinion, as the P knows the patient and the case better than another P. Good luck. ...Read more

29 years old, bilateral cpcs and mild renal dilation in my 19 wk ultrasound. What is my adjusted risk for trisomy 21,13 and 18?

Consult a Fetal: Maternal Medicine specialist if you're worried about the results of your Level 2 targeted fetal ultrasound. Your age & the results of your screens need to be factored in to calculate your risk. Bilateral Choroid Plexus Cysts are seen on 2nd trimester FUS's in 1-2% of healthy fetuses. They usually resorb in all fetuses. Genetic amniocentesis would give you a definitive answer. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Congratulate for coping well to move pregnancy up to near-term stage. At this time, I would never advise to worry or do something trying to change your baby; just continue your maternal duty to nurture him to term coming in 3-5 weeks. Then, see how he may thrive and live with whatever come with his life. At around one month after birth, repeat ultrasound of kidneys and see; then decide how to... ...Read more

I been having pulsation in my right side of my ribs. I have a right renal aneurysm and an aneurysmal dilation in my liver. Can be related?

Here are some ...: The bruit from blood flow turbulence in arterial aneurysm or stenosis may be felt as pulsation but very unlikely from that in the deep seated area like renal and hepatic arteries. The possible issue of linking pulsation in right ribs with renal / hepatic aneurysm should be directed with the Doc who ordered the imaging studies and has taken care of you. Online speculation would not be sure for such ...Read more
