Ultrasound Bladder And Kidneys Complete
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
What does it mean when there are a lot of red and blue dots in my bladder and kidneys during an ultrasound?
Vessels: The red and blue dots on ultrasound are most likely blood vessels that show up on what are called doppler studies of the vessels. Not to be concerned unless the doctor that ordered the ultrasound is concerned about the results and discusses those concerns with you. Hope this answers your question. Thanks for using Healthtap.

My results for my recent ultrasound are that I have a septic cyst on my left kidney & a remarkable bladder. What does this mean?
'Remarkable': bladder is probably a typo and really means 'unremarkable', which is normal. The septated kdney cyst may or mat not be significant. If the septation is thin, it is likely nothing to worry about. If it is thick or irregular, it is more concerning. Speak with your doctor to get the details. ...Read more

I had a ultrasound of my bladder and kidneys and the report said "Unremarkable Scan" but it said "under-distended bladder" so would they see that ok?
It depends: How under distended the bladder was and what your clinician was looking for. If your doc was looking for things like bladder outlet obstruction, an undistended bladder pretty much rules that out. If they are looking for things like bladder wall thickening, a collapsed bladder might make that impossible to see. But if the bladder is at least partially distended, usually the scan is ok. ...Read more
Not usually: Acute tubular necrosis is classified as a "renal" (i.e. Not pre-renal or post-renal) cause of acute kidney injury. Diagnosis is made by a fena (fractional excretion of sodium) > 3% and presence of muddy casts (a type of granular cast) in urinalysis. This cannot be accurately diagnosed by imaging studies. ...Read more

I needed a full bladder for an ultrasound. As I was waiting I notice that my kidneys started to ache is that normal when a bladder is completely full?
My second trimester ultrasound only showed up one kidney. Appointment was long, had to empty my bladder twice. What is the likelihood finding kidney?
One kidney in baby?: The 2nd trim. Sono doesn't usually look at maternal structures, so I assume you are talking about the baby having only one kidney. You need a referral to a maternal-fetal medicine specialist for a level 2 sono; it would be unusual for a good sonographer to miss a kidney if it were there. Ur baby may have only one kidney, which shouldn't indicate genetic disorders and baby should likely b o/w health. ...Read more

Post void incontinence, ultrasound bladder, kidney and prostate normal, after voiding showed bladder empty normal, awaiting uroflowmetry resul, concern?
Here are some. ..: For postvoid incontinence, I assumed you have so-called postvoid dribbling after you ripped in the penis into underwaer, which is indeed very annoying. You may try correctly milking the entirely urethra after each voiding by wiping the urethra x 3-4 times from the area behind scrotum toward the end of penis until "dryness" before zipping in the penis. Do this first. Due to 400-letter limit, end. . ...Read more
I get frequent uti's and today my doctor called to say my kidney and bladder ultrasound came back abnormal. What can be some of the reasons?
22 wk fetal ultrasound completely normal. The doc remarked a tiny thickening of bladder wall. Fluid fine, kidneys and bladder normal. Should I worry?
No Worries: This is an incidental finding, doesn't really mean anything. If your doctor is concerned about it he will follow it with serial ultrasounds. You have enough to worry about being pregnant having diabetes and dealing with life's ever changing challenges. Congratulations on your upcoming child! ...Read more

That: That sounds like a normal report. Saying that a urinary bladder appears unremarkable means that it appears normal. The kidney size is average.

Kidney stones in between bladder/kidney why so long to be removed been a week stint inserted can ultra sound be used?
Depends: The stent was inserted to bypass the stone and so relieve your pain. You did not mention the diameter of the stone but if it is in the mid ureter as you say, it can be handled endoscopically by removal or laser fragmentation. The urologist may decide to use lithotripsy depending on the details of size...Best wishes. ...Read more
Yes: Bladder cancer can easily be missed on sonogram of the bladder and kidneys, especially if the tumor is small or flat. The definitive test for diagnosis is a cystoscopy where a small telescope is placed into the bladder to visualize the lining of the bladder. At the same time, a biopsy is taken to confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more
Is there any possibility bladder cancer would not show up on a sonogram of the bladder & kidneys?
The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more
