I am 82 and female. All I know is that he ordered a CAT scan after seeing my ultra sound...he didn't share what he saw on the ultra sound

A CT scan is usually ordered when the ultrasound reports something suspicious like a mass or lesion in the kidneys.

A mass can be anything from a cyst to a tumor. It can also be a kidney stone.

Without seeing the ultrasound report a lot of speculation can be made, which is not always useful. So, the best course of action will be to get a copy of the ultrasound report from your doctor's office. This can be done by simply making a call to the office and asking them to email the report to you.

The office can not hold the report from you and are required by law to make it available once requested.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
