Spleen size: My sense is that there is no significant difference in the spleen noted on these 2 studies because of different views, but a radiologist could compare the studies for you to be surer. If the spleen is determined to be enlarged a hematologist could be consulted to look for infectious mononucleosis or other hematologic pathology.
