there are many criteria to diagnose pyelectasis and also fetus can show different values at different times like in case full bladder the pelvic diameter will appear more,
this can be associated with anueploidy like down syndrome in some cases but in around 70% of fetuses this will regress,
so follow with regular checkup to watch the change.
take care.
