6 year old, ultrasound says left renal mild pelivictasis, no caliectasis, no ureteric dilatation. Implications? Advice?
hello my 6 yr old daughter underwent an ultrasound . the report reads as below -- left renal mild pelviectasis - 8mm - not significant no caliectasis no ureteric dilatation. no urecterocele no u. bladder diverticulum could you please help with this? what does this imply? is there something that needs to be done? will there be any health issues in future? pl advice.
Relax. It is nothing to worry.
However, she needs a follow up USG after 3 to 6 months.
If the pelvis size increases from 8mm to more, she will require a DTPA renogram.
Absence of ureteric dilation rules out high grade reflux. So kindly relax
