Here are the test results of kidney ultrasound of my wife.

Customer Question

Hi, here are the test results of kidney ultrasound of my wife. are these critical results:
HISTORY: Chronic renal disease
Multiple transverse and longitudinal sonographic images of the kidneys and
urinary bladder were obtained transabdominally, employing grayscale and color
Doppler imaging.
The right kidney measures 9.5 cm and the left kidney measures 9.5 cm in length.
The renal cortical parenchyma appears mildly echogenic bilaterally. In the
right kidney, there is mild hydronephrosis. At the lateral aspect of the right
kidney, there is a 9 x 7 x 9 mm echogenic parenchymal lesion. There are
bilateral cysts, measuring up to 0.9 cm on the right and 1.7 cm on the left.
Resistive indices are not elevated, ranging from 0.55-0.62 on the right and
0.52-0.59 on the left.
Limited bladder evaluation demonstrates no gross filling defect . Ureteral jets
are visualized bilaterally. Post void residual estimated to be 25 cc .
1. Slightly echogenic appearance of the renal parenchyma bilaterally,
compatible with history of chronic renal disease.
2. Mild right hydronephrosis.
3. 9 mm echogenic lesion in the right kidney may represent a fat-containing
lesion such as angiomyolipoma.
4. Urinary bladder with postvoid residual of 25 cc.

This is Dr. David

Angiomyolipomas are the most common benign mass of the kidney and are composed of blood vessels, smooth muscle cells and fat cells.

this is not a dangerous cancer and will not spread.

no, this is not a dangerous result.

there is some fluid backup in the right kidney.

this should be checked by a urologist

you might need a cystoscopy and evaluation of bladder and right ureter to see why there is mild right hydronephrosis.

but this is not a worrisome result
