Nephrologist 's  Response
Hi, Normal adult kidney length ranges from 9-11 cms. Without doing kidney function test, it is not possible to find the differential function of each kidney. DTPA or DMSA are the test of choice for such conditions. your doctors are doing right job. please follow their advice. Take care.
