Thanks for writing in.
When CT scan
of abdomen (kidneys included) is done, the scan also is taken for the lower areas of chest and the lung bases. I think pneumonia
was diagnosed in this manner.
Coming to the kidney growth, fat deposition can occur in some tumors of kidneys like lipoma or angiomyolipoma
. The nature of such growth needs to be accurately evaluated and your doctor will write this in your report.
In most patients, fat deposition in kidneys is a benign condition, however the confirmation depends on correct description and may also require a kidney biopsy
Hope this helps.
