Pediatrician, Neonatology 's  Response
You are correct in doing the scan and culture
You may have to give appropriate antibiotic - based on culture report.
Contact Urologist - she may need further evaluation
A condition called extra-renal-pelvis and/or reflux needs to be ruled out by repeat ultrasound from a different centre.
Good Luck
