Thank you for your question.
In essence this report is normal, so you can be assured.
The report is saying that the chamber where the urine collects inside of the kidney itself is slightly dilated in the one kidney, in the light that there is no outflow obstruction , this is not abnormal.
Please feel free to ask for any other information.
