In brief: I

I have heard this term used with fetal ultrasounds - (pyelectasis) which means that there can be dilation of the central part of the kidney.
I will change this from unspecified specialty to diagostic radiologist, to get a better chance of getting exact info. I suggest that you ask your doctor what he specifically meant whe using the term "full kidney".

In brief: "Full" kidney

"full" is not a specific ultrasound descriptor so I wouldn't want to venture a guess without viewing the images and/or the exact wording of the report.
Talk to your doc about the results. It may not have much clinical relevance..
