Thanks for writing in to us.

I will explain your ultrasound findings in simple terms:

1. Both kidney are normal in size and parenchymal echogenicity
Both kidneys are normal in size and structural appearance as seen on ultrasound.

2. There is pelvocalyceal fullness,both kidneys
The kidney - ureter junction and calyces in the kidney are well seen.

3. No lithiasis
No kidney stones.

4. No focal solid or cystic mass
No abnormal areas seen in kidneys

5. Ureters-not visualized
This is normal as ureters are visualised on ultrasound scan only when obstructed.

6. Floating fine internal echoes
This may indicate mild bladder infection.

7. Pre void urine - 173 cc . post void urine 11 cc
No obstruction to flow of urine and no retention also.

From the above it looks like a mild bladder infection which can be completely treated by drinking lots of water and with a course of antibiotics

Hope this helps
