Dear friend, welcome to Healthcaremagic!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

The USG (ultrasonography)of your brother shows partial loss of differention between the kidney cortex (surface) and medulla (deeper) structures and deranged creatinine.
This indicates kidney failure.
What was the USG done for?
What are his illnesses? Is he a diabetic/ hypertensive?
What are his symptoms?

It would greatly help if you could upload any other reports here using the uploading service available on this site just below the text box. You can email the reports / scans to
YYYY@YYYY      with subject- (Attn: Dr. Prasad Akole)

I would advise him a complete evaluation for renal failure and a nephrology opinion.
I can be more specific once I get details from you.

I would be glad to answer any further queries. Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at
Good Luck!
