Brief Answer:
It is normal physiological finding & not a problem

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
I am Dr. Jyothi BL and I will be answering your query.

Mild renal pelvi calyceal system dilation is normal physiological finding.
Most of the times, it is due to over distended bladder and on micturation it becomes normal.
As i expect no obstruction findings as you not mentioned, this change is completely normal.
After the kidney, renal pelvis calyceal system is the place of collection of urine. From there to ureter, bladder, urethra and micturation.

So, your mild right pelvi calyceal system dilatation is completely normal finding and would not cause any serious problem.

Any further queries, happy to help again.

I have been having brown colour urine and did an ultrasound. The impression reads as " right kidney shows mild fulness of pelvicalyceal system and dilated upper ureter echogenic calculus measuring 5.2mm is noted in the upper ureter 3cm distal to renal pelvis. Diffuse faty liver is noted"



Is it a tumour

Had a bladder infection - after 30 years. Infection went away, but still some discomfort. Had CT Abd/Pelvis w/contrast. There is prominence of the renal pelvis bilaterally, consistent with developmental extrarenal pelves, greater on the left. No ureteral dilation or stones. A component of mild chronic UPJ obstruction cannot be excluded. What does this mean ? I am scared !

I am a 62 year old male, i have had an ongoing UTI with a brief period of gross hematuria. A recent MRI shows an abnormal enhancement of the right collecting system especially involving the upper and lower pole calyces.in addition there is an abnormal thickening of the right renal pelvis and proximal ureter. The suspicion is for either infiltrating transitional carcinoma or an inflammatory etiology. Other than frequent urination, no pain, no fever, no weight loss, just stress while i am waiting to clear the e-coli infection so that internal testing can proceed and diagnose the problem. I have a history of frequent stones and presently have 2 in my right kidney What is the likelyhood of a positive outcome

INDINGS: The right kidney measures 12.7 cm in length. There is moderate hydronephrosis, with moderate pelviectasis and mild caliectasis. This does not change after the patient voided. No nephric calculi. The left kidney measures 12.1 cm in length. There is mild pelvi-caliectasis and hydronephrosis. This does not change following patient voiding. No nephric calculi. Both ureteral jets were identified. Prevoid bladder volume: 441.7ml. Postvoid bladder volume: 69.7ml. Impression IMPRESSION: Moderate hydronephrosis on the right and mild hydronephrosis on the left that does not change with voiding consideration may be given to dedicated CT scan of the kidneys with contrast to determine if a portion of the hydronephrosis/pelviectasis is secondary to an extrarenal pelvis or true mild/moderate hydronephrosis. Component Results There is no component information for this result. General Information Collected: 2/6/2014 7:30 AM Resulted: 2/6/2014 5:43 PM Ordered By: Ashok Kumar, MD Result Status: Final result Back to the Test Results List What does this mean
