Dear sonja
the first two queries are just normal, the third means that urine that remains in bladder after voiding is 168ml. and the last is his advice that ct scan should be done of kidney ureter and bladder to rule out any stone. Hope things are clear now.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Normal size of kidney is 10-11cm. So it is almost normal.Prominent p-c system is nothing unusual. If there is any dilatation then there is possibility of a stone which they have told you to rule out by CT-scan.Overall, report is absolutely normal.
