Diffuse nephrocalcinosis on ultrasonography of the kidneys may be suggestive of PH1. The diagnosis may be supported by renal ultrasound examination findings revealing multiple bilateral radiopaque calculi.

Multiple cysts in the entire renal region may be found in patients with tuberous sclerosis.

Diffuse cortical nephrocalcinosis may be seen in patients with PH1 and ESKD, although this can be difficult to distinguish from typical findings in ESKD.
