Both kidneys are enlarged in size (right: 10 cm and left 9 cm in bipolar diameter) showing increased echogenicity (due to acoustic enhancement of the tiny cysts) and altered corticomedullary differentiation. No hydronephrosis is noted. No focal mass lesion is seen.
With high-frequency linear probe, numerous tiny cylindrical cysts are visualized representing ectatic collecting ducts. One of the cysts measures 1.6 mm.
