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.

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

How frequent is it safe to do ultrasound? Within month i had two ultrasounds of bladder and kidney and one echocardiography, is it safe?

Very safe: Ultrasound uses no radiation and is one of the safest imaging tests available. Prolonged (more than 2 hours) diagnositic ultrasound performed in 1 location can cause local tissue heating but would still be very unlikely to cause any problem. Short of that, it is totally safe and could be done every day without causing a problem for the patient. ...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?

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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
