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.

A tiny kidney stone: A punctate calculus refers to a very small kidney stone, generally 1-2 mm in size picked up on a CT scan as this is the most sensitive imaging study. A stone of this size should be passable if it decides to move down the ureter. I would recommend excellent fluid intake of 70-80 ounces daily and orange juice and lemonade daily. Your doctor should also monitor this stone periodically for growth. ...Read more
See answer: The kidneys and bladder are normally visualized with a routine bone scan. Decrease visualization and activity generally reflects decreased renal function and an increase in activity commonly represents either obstruction or delayed excretion. You should discuss with the doctor who ordered the test whether he feels finding has any clinical significance. Most likely not? ...Read more
What is chronic pyelonephritis and what is focal area scarring in the lower pole of the left kidney?
Chronic Pyelo: Chronic pyelonephritis is the result of any process in the kidney that causes prolonged inflammation and fibrosis (scarring). Common causes include: persistent or recurrent renal infections, vesicoureteral reflux (urine going backwards into the kidney), or urinary tract obstruction. A board certified urologist or nephrologist are the best doctors to review these types of findings. ...Read more
I have few calculi in upper and mild calyx largest measuring 5mm at right kidney. calculus measuring 4mm in left kidney. Along with left minimal hydroureteronephrosis with dilated entire left uretre.

It would be prudent to consult a urologist for proper treatment. Left untreated, even stones, this small, can damage the kidney. Drink enough water every day so that your urine is mostly colorless. ...Read more

There is presence of large non-enhancing predominantly hypodense lesion(HU-80) seen involving the upper and mid pole of right kidney. it measures ~166?
ElementaryDearWatson: There are generally accepted patterns of normal lung anatomy with chest x-rays, CT, MRI,etc.So something"suspicious"means possibly not normal. And "opacity" is something denser than it should be in the area being looked at.Such findings could be old or new, significant or insignificant depending on the specific situation(symptoms,history, physical findings), which is up to the doctor to figure-out ...Read more
Kub ultrasound finding of anechoic focus at the middle pole measuring 1.5x1.5cm, left kidney. Minimal pelvocaliectasia right kidney.What treatment?
Probably benign: A description of an anechoic focus in the kidney typically refers to a cyst or a cystic lesion. Minimal pelvocaliectasis typically refers to very mild dilatation of the pelvis & calyces which is where urine drained into before it flow out into the ureter. These findings do not sound concerning as pelvocaliectasis may occur when you have a full bladder. Please check with your doctor to be sure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In my usg the impression says: echogenic focus in the mid cortal area of left kidney. The kidney measures108.4*53.0mm. What does this mean ?
Nonspecific: The kidney measurement is relatively normal and is essentially just given for reference. The echogenic focus is somewhat nonspecific and could be many things (angiomyolipoma is one that quickly comes to mind). Without seeing the images or knowing if you've had other imaging, it's hard to give much more information. ...Read more

Treatment for non obstructing 2.25 CM kidney stone in upper pole of right kidney ? Could the stone be causing abdominal & upper leg pain? Headache?
Probably not: A non-obstructing stone may cause blood in the urine but should not be causing pain especially headache or thigh pain. Theoretically a large kidney stone that is not obstructing might cause some pain. Generally that would be back pain or flank pain rather than abdominal pain. I recommend you discuss with your physician the radiology report generated by the radiologist. ...Read more
