I've never had an ultrasound done on my Kidneys before. 


What is bosniak? Do I need a full bladder for the ultrasound?

I think every kind of kidney imaging needs a full bladder.  I had it with both ultrasound and CT..

Here's an explanation of the Bosniak rating system.  It's a way of classifying masses in your kidneys.

I remember my surgeon/urologist telling me 'no special diet, everything in moderation'. It's been 7 years since my neph and my function with one kidney is around 70. Not bad for a solitary one, has stepped up to the plate.

Thank you. I'll make sure to drink a lot of water before I go. Also thanks for the link! I appreciate it. 


I've never needed a full bladder with a CT scan that is interesting.
