KUB Ultrasound For December 2010

December 31st, 2010 - Friday

Report for the KUB (kidneys, ureters and bladder) ultrasound done on December 27, 2010 at UMMC:

Indication:
Neurogenic bladder with renal parenchymal disease.

Findings:
Comparison made with previous ultrasound dated 11.2.2010.
Both kidneys are increased in echogenicity. Right kidney measures 8.6 cm in bipolar length and left kidney measures 9.1 cm in bipolar length. A small cyst is seen in the right kidney, measuring 0.5 x 0.5 cm. No renal calculi or hydronephrosis. Urinary bladder is underfilled and the wall is trabeculated.

Impression:
1. Echogenic kidneys which may represent parenchymal disease.
2. Renal right cyst.
3. Trabeculated bladder wall.

Generally, I would say that there is little change from the previous ultrasound. That is good news for now. Together with the slightly better results for the renal profile done on August 2010, I am happy. These are good news to close the year with.

    out of curiosity, do all those symptoms put you at high risk for urinary tract infections and bladder/kidney stones?

    and, what medical complications besides frequent catheterizing does the “underfilling of the bladder” lead to?

    thanks in advance.

      The report is a clear indication of kidney disease. The risk of UTI for me comes from unclean catheterisation and insufficient drainage of the bladder from reduced fluid intake. I am aware of these causes and take precautions to ensure I don’t get them. I have no idea what “urinary bladder is undefilled” means exactly.
