Recent uti. Ongoing flank pain. Dipstick shows leukocytes but no bacteria. MRI & KUB show healthy kidneys. Do I need to rule out kidney infection?

In brief: Urine culture

A urine culture is needed in my opinion.
Another reason for leukocytes in urine besides infection is allergic interstitial nephritis - an allergic reaction to a medication. Did you take a med in the past 45 days?
