How are you? What other symptoms are present? If there is no sign of stones in imaging studies, this could be due to dilation of the central part of the kidney or may also be associated with possible infection in the urinary tract.  It is best that you discuss the result with your attending physician for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.

How was your CT scan? This could be due to possible infection as well as inflammation and may need to be evaluated further. Imaging studies such as CT scan may indeed very helpful in determining the underlying cause. Let us know how it goes. Take care always.
