I just had a medical examination and it was diagnosed that i have renal problems. The ultrasound showed that i had increased echogenicity of both kidneys. The nephrologist gave me imidapril 10 mg (half a tablet to be taken once every day).
В in summary, ultrasonography is a useful tool in the evaluation of adult and pediatric patients with aki for assessing obstruction, parenchymal evaluation, and distinguishing acute from chronic kidney diseases. With better understanding of the pathogenesis of certain causes of aki, it is anticipated that renal ultrasonography may become an even.
В many kidney problems can cause increased echogenicity of renal parenchyma. The most common cause is kidney damage caused by various reasons. For example, chronic nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, polycystic kidney disease, kidney cysts, kidney stones and many other kidney diseases can cause renal parenchymal echogenicity.
В renal parenchymal disease means the same thing as chronic kidney disease (ckd). Does this indicate ckd and if so, what stage and what should i do? I live in indonesia but am american.
Abnormal ultrasonographic findings include increased renal echogenicity and bilateral enlarged kidneys ( figure 64-2 ). The utility of ultrasonography is to evaluate for hydronephrosis and vascular abnormalities (inflow or outflow) as causes for renal failure.
Increased renal echogenicity is a non-specific finding but can represent a number of underlying conditions.
Reduction in renal length was found to be an insufficient independent indicator of chronic renal disease. To determine the ultrasound normative values of renal parenchymal thickness (rpt) among adults and correlate them with age and somatometric parameters.
В renal parenchymal disease includes maladies that damage the outermost internal region of the kidney where filtration and urine formation occur. Autoimmune disorders, medical conditions, or obstructions may all contribute to this disease. Lupus, bacterial infections, diabetes and high blood pressure, along with kidney stones can traumatize.
