Sonogram (Definition)

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?

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?

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.

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?

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.

Can a tubular necrosis be found by performing a kidney and bladder ultrasound?

Can a tubular necrosis be found by performing a kidney and bladder ultrasound?

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.

What does a technician look at during a pelvic ultrasound? Do they look at bladder and kidneys?

What does a technician look at during a pelvic ultrasound? Do they look at bladder and kidneys?

No: The routine female pelvic ultrasound includes evaluationof the uerus, ovaries and area between the ovaries and uterus. The bladder is present on the examination but is frequently not fully evaluated. In some practices a limited view of the kidneys is obtained but this is certainly ot the standard nor is it routine.

Normal ursine output and normal urinalysises and normal kidney and bladder ultrasound! Can someone still have kidney failure?

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?

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?

Yes: Often when the bladder reaches capacity or if it is irritated, aching discomfort can radiate to the lower part of your back or even involve the flank regions (where the kidneys are). The discomfort should resolve quickly once the bladder is emptied.

My second trimester ultrasound only showed up one kidney. Appointment was long, had to empty my bladder twice. What is the likelihood finding kidney?

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.

In my kidney ultrasound the result is normal size of kidneys with bilateral diffuse parenchymal disease, normal sonogram of the urinary bladder.

Not sure: What the question is, but there are numerous potential causes for abnormal appearing kidneys on ultrasound. Best to speak with your doctor about the results. The results have to be interpreted in the context of your entire clinical picture, the appearance on ultrasound is entirely nonspecific.

Post void incontinence, ultrasound bladder, kidney and prostate normal, after voiding showed bladder empty normal, awaiting uroflowmetry resul, concern?

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. .

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?

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?

Possible blockage?: I am sure when you see him you will get reassured. Waiting makes people worried. It could be something like a stone or polyp causing some blockage of the ureter and can be dealt with. Also, it could be that your bladder is not emptying well.

22 wk fetal ultrasound completely normal. The doc remarked a tiny thickening of bladder wall. Fluid fine, kidneys and bladder normal. Should I worry?

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!

About kidney 3 years 1 month old girl. Ultrasound final report:1st question. Urinary bladder appears unremarkable. Is it normal? 2nd question right kidney 6.5 cm, left kidney 6.6 CM are they right size? 3rd question kidney are somewhat obscured by bowe

About kidney 3 years 1 month old girl. Ultrasound final report:1st question. Urinary bladder appears unremarkable. Is it normal? 2nd question right kidney 6.5 cm, left kidney 6.6 CM are they right size? 3rd question kidney are somewhat obscured by bowe

That: That sounds like a normal report. Saying that a urinary bladder appears unremarkable means that it appears normal. The kidney size is average. The bowels are in front of the kidneys so often bowel gas is present in front of the kidneys. Bilateral ureteral jets means that the kidneys are making urine which is normal; it means that they aren't blocked.

Blood in urine on and off for a month. Had blood tests, 3 urine analysis, cystoscopy, 2 kidney and bladder ultrasounds. Still haven't found cause.

Blood in urine on and off for a month. Had blood tests, 3 urine analysis, cystoscopy, 2 kidney and bladder ultrasounds. Still haven't found cause.

CT: Some small calculi may not be visualized with ultrasound. They may not obstruct the kidney, but any movement may turn urine positive for blood. So before everyone throws their hands up and says " I don't know ", try CT. Best wishes

Peeing blood! I had doc appt on monday! Was check for kidney bladder UTI infec, was normal. Also had ultrasound on kidney bladder it was fine no pain?

Urologist consult: If non -invasive imaging like ultrasound failed to discover the source of bleeding, the urologist might need to be consulted to perform cystoscopy - procedure when they can look inside and do special x rays, or may decide to do computer tomography.

Bladder (Definition)

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


Kidney (Definition)

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