History of kidney stones. Ultrasound shows midpole calculus. Is it kidney stone?

Hi, I have a history of kidney stones and I just received my latest ultrasound results and it states that there is a mid pole calculus measuring 6 mm but then it says there was no mass identified . So now I am confused, do I have a kidney stone or not? I have the disc with the images on it and there is definitely something there.

if USG shows midpole calculus then you definitely have kidney stone.
You can do XRAY KUB to confirm.
Anyways if USG is not showing Hydronephrosis any you are asymptomatic just take adequate fluids daily.
