Suspicious for mets: Your doctor can verify and confirm it one of two ways. Do a PET scan now or do one more CT scan of chest in 6-8 weeks from now. Biopsy may be needed but the nodules are too small for a biopsy right now...they need to be close to 10-12 mm in size. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What to do with conflicting CT scan results? I had a mammogram and a CT scan done. The CT scan showed a lump in my breast but the mammogram didn't show anything. What is done in situations like these? Should another test be done other than CT or mamogra
Dedicated : Dedicated ct imaging of the breast is essentially only performed in a few research facilities, so i will assume that something was found in your breast incidentally during a ct of your chest. First, make sure that the radiologist performing the mammogram had the ct scan for comparison. If you feel the lump that was seen on ct, then you should probably have an ultrasound performed in the area for further evaluation. If you do not feel the lump and the radiologist compared the mammogram with the ct and was not concerned, then the ct finding was probably incidental and no further evaluation would be indicated. However, if you are still concerned you could have a follow-up mammogram in six months to ease your concern. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe: If the radiologist looks at both studies and determines that a normal structure on the mammogram accounts for what looks like an abnormality on CT, then no. If the mammogram can't account for the CT finding, then yes. Ultrasound would likely be the next test, then possibly MRI if there is still uncertainty. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Unlikely: Barium swallow assesses the width and contours of the esophagus, the tube that connects your throat and stomach. Narrowing (presumably of esophagus) may be related to a variety of factors, many benign and some more concerning. Cat scan is an x-ray which spins around you and generates a 3 dimensional picture of the inside of your chest or abdomen. Endoscopy may also be needed for further assessment. ...Read more
Ct scan uses data from a beam of xrays and reconstructs a cross sectional image of your body. It is a high dose of xrays and used only when the benefits outweigh the risk. Cancer risk is 1 in 500 in children. Also using iodinated contrast might cause transient renal failure in about 5% of patients. (contrast induced nepropathy) most do not explain this to the patient as ...Read more
