What Do White Specks On A Kidney Ultrasound Signify
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.

Next - usually CT: A hyperechoic mass may be an angiomyolipoma, renal cell cancer, or hemorrhagic cyst among others. A ct would often be indicated to differentiate further. Angiomyolipoma is a benign growth (also known as hamartoma) but it can bleed. Renal cell cancers used to be thought to be hypoechoic (dark on ultrasound), but there have been cases of tumors enveloping fat and becoming hyperechoic (brighton us). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
