Hi welcome satish
Prominat pelvis in kidney at 22weeks is just a findind in scan. Presently it is difficult to say whether it is normal finding or due to any other pathology.It could be due to overfilled urinary bladder of fetus.
There is no any preventive measure we can take as pregnacy goes it own ways.
Just do follow up scan after 1 month.
Thanking you.
