Hello Nindyana Aulia,
Thank you for the question.
Ultrasound is usually done to see the appearance of organs in the body, including in the abdomen or abdomen. This ultrasound can be used to see the structure of the kidneys, gallbladder, pancreas, as well as the appendix or appendix, and other structures. This is done by the doctor as a supporting examination to find out the cause of complaints from patients.
Based on the writings of the ultrasound examination that you submit, it shows that the right kidney cannot be seen properly. This can be caused by many possibilities, namely the kidneys can not be seen because when they want to see the position of the kidney, there is air in the intestine that blocks the kidney. In addition, there is the possibility of right kidney hypoplasia, a condition in which the kidneys are smaller than normal, or aplasia, a condition in which kidney tissue is absent or does not develop at all.
Aside from the invisible right kidney, the appendix or appendix is also not seen on examination. This can be caused by the location of the appendix which varies in each human, one of which is the retrocaecal position, namely the position of the appendix that is hidden behind the intestine, so it cannot be seen, and this is normal.
To determine the medical condition or illness that you are suffering from, the results of supporting examinations are not enough. You should consult with the doctor who is treating you, because in order to summarize the medical condition you have, the doctor must know other information including the complaints you have, the results of a physical examination, and the results of the overall investigation.
Hopefully this information can help.
