Ultrasound of my kidneys provides different results, please advise?

Hello in 2010 I had an ultrasound after seeing a nephrologist. My right kidney measured 10×3.6 cm and my left 9.8×3.8 cm…the notation said slight increased echogenicity of both kidneys in prominent pyramids. And the impression was suggesting medical renal disease…now the nephrologist said that I had significant scarring in both kidneys. Which baffled him because my blood work was great. Now a few days ago after getting an ultrasound of my kidneys there was nothing it was all normal. And while I’m thankful I’m confused and no one seems to be able to tell me why this can occur. Can you tell me why this might be the case?

Age: 29
Medications: Methotrexate, prednisone, gabapentin
General Information: I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2017 and my Rheumatologist thinks I may have RA or sarcoidosis.

It could be due to an improper examination technique or an error in interpretation of its results. If you are worried about the results, another US can be done to put your mind at ease.

Thanks for the query..

There is a possibility that there has been mis-interpretation of the ultrasound.

If your latest ultrasound and blood reports are clear then you need not to worry as everything must be fine..

If you still want to reassure yourself you can get checked by any skilled and eminent sonologist..

Hope this helps..
