Doctor, I have done ultrasound for kub

Patient: Doctor, I have done ultrasound for kub. In reports shows duplex moiety. What does means?

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.A duplex moiety is a duplication of parts of the kidney. This occurs when the fusion of the kidney does not occur properly during embryo growth.You need to talk to a Doctor to see if it is causing you any problems. Generally, treatment is not needed if the duplication is not causing you any symptoms. Hope this helps you.All the best.
