HI Mam
I really appreciate your concern, It some time becomes very difficult when some one ask for some advise without clinical complain, just sending a usg report without chief complain wont clear any thing, for what your husband advised for sonography, it is not stated here, your said report is indicative of some geriatric changes until & unless having some clinical symptoms, for better advise please send the clinical history, looking forward Good day
