Hi
Thanks for the query.
The USG findings of prominence of pelvicalyceal system can indicate a recent passage of stone through the ureter or a stone obstructing the ureter; although this seems less likely.
You need to repeat the scan in a week or so and if the findings persist; you may need a CT scan as small stones are often not seen on USG.
Meanwhile drink plenty of fluids.
Hope this helps
Good luck.
