Nephrologist 's  Response
hi, The size of the renal pelvis is variable, depending on age, anatomical variations. obstructed vs non-obstructed and individual variations.Mild pelvicalyceal dilation means the urinary system appeared to be slightly dilated. This is a very subjective finding. It cannot be the cause of any kidney failure because it only affects one kidney. The report gives no information on the potential causes of your kidney failure. The most common reasons would be a recently passed stone or an over-reading by the radiologist. You should talk to your physician about this. take care
