In brief: 9-13 cm

With an ultrasound evaluation, the normal kidney size is 9-13 cm. One kidney may be up to 1.
5 CM difference in size from the other and still be in acceptable range. Kidney sizes in females may be some smaller than in males but evenso a kidney smaller than 9 CM is abnormally small. Also a kidney larger than 13 CM is generally considered abnormal.
