My USG abdomen showed BILATERAL PROMINANT PELVICALYCEAL SYSTEM in kidneys. WHAT DOES IT MEAN.

Possible obstruction: This is a back-up of urine in the collecting system portion of the kidneys where they drain urine down into the ureters. It will take more testing to find out where the possible obstruction, if any, exists, see a Urologist for more info ...Read more

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. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more

I had ultrasound done and it said a prominent column of berlin versus a duplicated collecting system is seen in the right kidney. What does that mean?

I had ultrasound done and it said a prominent column of berlin versus a duplicated collecting system is seen in the right kidney. What does that mean?

Column of Bertin: Renal column (of bertin) is extension of renal cortex between the renal pyramids [see diagram]. It allows the cortex to be better anchored. It consists of blood vessels, urinary tubes & fibrous material. See this site for image of duplicated collecting system, a common normal variant: http://health-fts. Blogspot.

I have gone through lft. My total protein level is 8.1 and sgpt is 40. In usg shows left kidney has minimal fullness of pelvicalyceal system. Need adv

Multiple: Sgpt of 40 appears to be normal by our lab cut offs. Total protein of 8.1 is normal or minimally elevated, so your liver seems ok by these tests. Left kidney minimal fullness - that by itself doesn't tell me what the problem is and where it is located. ...Read more

In renogran report, right kidney, it reads- there is hold up of the activity in the collection system with complete wash out after lasix (furosemide). Meaning?

In renogran report, right kidney, it reads- there is hold up of the activity in the collection system with complete wash out after lasix (furosemide). Meaning?

No obstruction: The Lasix (furosemide) renal scan you had is good for differentiating a dilated collectong system from true obstruction. Sometimes urine will not clear immediately from the collecting system if there is some dilation, but this doesn't necesserily mean it is obstructed. Lasix (furosemide) is given to help flush out the radiotracer; if it washes out then there is no obstruction. ...Read more

Can you explain, foetal right kidney shows mild pelvo-calyctasis, appears to be physiological?

Can you explain, foetal right kidney shows mild pelvo-calyctasis, appears to be physiological?

Here are some...: Seeing mild dilation of ureters / renal pelvis, called pelvo-caliectasis, but at what stage of pregnancy? Only one side is involved and being mild suggests less severity if any. So, it is safe and worthwhile to repeat US in 2-3 months. More? Relate your concerns to the ordering doctors. Best wish to baby and mother health... ...Read more

Foetal right kidney shows mild pelvo-calyctasis, appears to be physiological. What does this mean?

The term "physiologic" is defined as a normal variant which means it is very mild and should resolve as the baby grows. They will follow this closely. ...Read more

Right Kidney ultrasound shows 25x21 mm size angiomyolipoma. Is it considered large? What should be done about it. Currently there are no symptoms.

Right Kidney ultrasound shows 25x21 mm size angiomyolipoma. Is it considered large? What should be done about it. Currently there are no symptoms.

Angiolipoma: 22 mm is 2 cm which is moderate size. Angiolipomas are benign so would just monitor especially since there are not symptoms and surgery is not without risk.

My scan result shows 3.4mm calyceal calculus in the middle calyx of right kidney...what to do doctor..

Nothing: Nonobstructing renal calculi are common. Nothing much to do unless you become symptomatic (pain, hematuria, infection) which could mean that the calcification is now likely causing an obstruction and needs removal, or lithotripsy ...Read more

My lumbar MRI shows hyper intense lesion measuring 2.5 CM in right kidney probably related to a cyst. What should I do?

My lumbar MRI shows hyper intense lesion measuring 2.5 CM in right kidney probably related to a cyst. What should I do?

Seen answer: It’s not uncommon for one imaging examination to detect an “incidentaloma” – an unrelated observation in the obtained images. Talk to your dr. / radiologist – they may want to confirm this observation with a renal ultrasound or possibly a repeat MRI – if it is a renal cyst, these are common, and usually not of clinical consequence. ...Read more

My wife is in 36 th week and she went for scan and it shows fetal left kidney shows isolated renal pelvis dilation measures 8mm. Right kidney appears normal. Both ureters are not dilated- left pelviaactatsis features. Do I need to worry?

My wife is in 36 th week and she went for scan and it shows fetal left kidney shows isolated renal pelvis dilation measures 8mm. Right kidney appears normal. Both ureters are not dilated- left pelviaactatsis features. Do I need to worry?

Not particularly: The numbers are borderline and not unusual. Baby doesn't make much pee in the womb & it is not appropriate to assess this until baby has been out for a while. I usually schedule a repeat ultrasound before the 2 month visit when these have either normalized or become more definite. The absence of any dilation of the ureters is the best "good" sign. ...Read more

What to do if the right kidney has flipped upside down. Anyone heard of this?

What to do if the right kidney has flipped upside down. Anyone heard of this?

Probably nothing: At times, the kidney (s) may not completely rotate into the typical orientation or may even be located in different locations. This should not matter unless the kidney is showing signs of drainage problems or kidney stones. It is important to talk to your doctor to make sure that there are no abnormalities of the right kidney anatomy other than position/location. ...Read more

What are the risk of right kidney hypoplastic?

What are the risk of right kidney hypoplastic?

Not to worry: This is rare and I trust the diagnosis is correct (i.e., not a scarred kidney from illness) and there's no genetic syndrome obvious. I'm also assuming that this was discovered incidentally, that your left kidney is normal, and that your kidney function is good. You can't donate your left kidney to somebody you love. If I'm correct, you just need to protect your good kidney. ...Read more
