Question: hi. we have done 9 th month scan and it is mentioned as left renal pelvis 6mm and right renal pelvis 3mm. is there any problem in it
Answer: Renal pelvis dialation is a widening of the renal pelvis and is a common finding on ultrasound scans performed during pregnancy. Often it is temporary and not associated with any problems in the kidney or ureter. This is a very common finding that will resolve by itself as your baby grows bigger. There is nothing to worry.

Question: In anomaly scan prominent renal pelvis shows 4mm but my doctor told that it is normal is it any problem
Answer: Do not worry it is normal if it is less than 7 mm then you should not worry because that mild renal pelviectasis and that will resolve on its own but if this value increases upto 7 and crosses the seven mark and touches 10 or 11 then you will need to consult your doctor because then this fluid needs to be drained usually newborns with more than 15 are considered critical and the doctor performs a cystourethrogram as soon as the babies born and baby is monitored for 2-3 weeks in hospital there are repeated urethrogram scans which identify more of babies cause of Blockage. Do not worry You cannot do much in here your gynae will do scan again at 2 weeks to see if there is any change in diameter. antibiotics will be given if at all it is required. postnatal follow up is very important if at all there are problems with the urinary tract. urethrogram will be recommended and then it will be followed up with your baby one week after birth as well. if the dilatation is less 10 mm then there shall be no worries. Hope it helps! take care
