Hallo Rina
It means that the inside of the kidney on the right side is slightly enlarged.
see picture ( calyses) http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/images/ency/fullsize/1101.jpg
This can be caused by an obstruction or a stone in the ureter ( urine tube that runs from the kidney to the bladder)
