In brief: Not typically

An ultrasound can suggest radiographic evidence of medical renal disease but cannot diagnose this.
To make the diagnosis of renal parenchymal disease the radiographic findings must be combined with blood studies of kidney function and sometimes urine studies for protein or a kidney biopsy.
