Hi,

Your ultrasound report is normal so don't worry. Kidney having cortex and medulla, in which healthy kidney we are able to differentiate both by ultrasound.

But in the case of pyelonephritis or interstitial nephritis or nephronophthisis, it may be lost.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
