Brief Answer:
Bilateral dilatation of pelvis suggested.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for posting your query on HealthcareMagic.

The presence of thinned out cortex and pelvic fullness in right kidney suggests increased pressure in right kidney.
The increased pressure results in dilatation of the pelvis and thus thinning of the cortex.

The presence of fullness of pelvicalyceal system in left kidney again suggests increased pressure and thus dilatation of the pelvis on the left side.

The cause for dilatation of bilateral pelvis is needed.

Consult your surgeon with the report to determine the cause of bilateral fullness.

Thanks and take care
