CT SCAN ABD/PELVIS W/O CONTRAST:WHAT IT MEANS?BOWEL:ORAL CONTRAST IDENTIFIED IN SMALL AND LARGE BOWEL LOOPS.No intestinal abnormality,air or fluid.

CT interpretation: Are u sure you have not had any other contrast imaging study within a few days before this CT you mentioned? If not then the CT you had must have been with contrast. Never the less, it sound like you have had a normal result with contrast appropriately moving through the small bowel and colon. Good luck I hope you feel better ...Read more

Upper quadrant pain. spleen borderline size 12.1cm, mild bilateral pelviectasis of kidneys. minimal R-side hydronephrosis. peripelvic cyst. Normal?

Probably: Pelviectasis is a general term used to describe dilation of the renal pelvis, or collecting system of the kidney and, generally, is clinically insignificant. Hydronephrosis also refers to dilation of the renal pelvis, But has the added connotation that the pathology was caused by an obstructive process, such as a kidney stone or in your case the peripelvic cyst of Rt kidney. Unremarkable finding. ...Read more

Peritonitis is usually not present and can be checked by blood count and exam indicating rebound tenderness associated with peritonitis. ...Read more

Mom have free fluid (lots) in stomach. CT scan normal, show fluid in lung too. Colonoscopy normal. Severe pain in higher abdomen and lower abdomen. ?

Inside or out?: It is unclear from your description if the free fluid in the "stomach" means it is fluid in the abdomen (vs. within the stomach), in which case it would be called "ascites" and this would be abnormal and seen on CT scan. If there is similar fluid in the chest (usually right side), this may be due to liver disease from a variety of causes. Alternatively need to rule out heart disease and cancer ...Read more

Sharp pain during bowel movement on 1st 2 days of menses. MRI shows some small volume fluid in pouch of douglas. Ultrasound found no abnormalities.

Sharp pain during bowel movement on 1st 2 days of menses. MRI shows some small volume fluid in pouch of douglas. Ultrasound found no abnormalities.

You need to continue: following your GYN doctor to figure out if indeed the pain you feel during bowel movement is attributable to the MRI results - especially since the ultrasound did not find anything to cause the pains. I hope you got a transvaginal ultrasound instead of abdominal ultrasound since the former is much more sensitive to pelvic findings. ...Read more

What does large fluid collection with an air fluid level mean, in pelvis of male, ?

Abscess: The only things that live in the male pelvis are: 1) bladder and 2) rectum. There should be no fluid collection outside of the bladder (normal), but with gas in it, usually represents an abscess. This usually represents a perforation or fistula from the rectum, or post-operative leak after rectal surgery. Depending on the cause, the treatment can be drainage through the rectum or open surgery ...Read more

Abdominal pain lower left side, 5-7 bowel movements per day, blood and mucus also, colonoskpoy clear but CT scan showed focal wall thicken, crohns?

Abdominal pain lower left side, 5-7 bowel movements per day, blood and mucus also, colonoskpoy clear but CT scan showed focal wall thicken, crohns?

Need more info: Usually a colonoscopy would be much more detailed and accurate than a ct scan, for the colon. The ct scan only identifies possible findings that may or may not have any clinical significance. Where was the "focal wall thickening"? If it was on the colon, then the colonoscopy would have already cleared that area. If it is small bowel thickening, then ask your doctors what it means for you. ...Read more

Extreme abdominal distention episodes. No distention on CT (no air, fluid, or distended bowel...Nothing). What could cause this confusing result?

Chameleons vs Static: Humans change status. 2 issues: (1) like most medical tests, only issues present at moment of the test show; not previous or future issues. (2) the range of "normal" (as defined by medical industry: the central 96% of usual) is huge. I have seen many examples of radiologists calling images normal when the issue is quite visible within the images. Get ; examine the images yourself with assistance. ...Read more
