C7 Transverse Processes Are Moderately Prominent Bilaterally
Prominent bilateral C7 transverse processes versus small hypoplastic bilateral cervical ribs, what is this?
Minor anatomic: variations in the development of the vertebra, likely of no significance. ...Read more
My Chest X-ray "there are very small bilateral either C7 cervical rib or mildly prominent transverse processes at C7." What does this mean?
Usually coincidental: But if you have compression over the brachial plexus in the shoulder, causing neurogenic or vascular thoracic outlet syndrome, leading to arm pain, numbness, weakness, then a question of mechanical effect is relevant. Sometimes, surgical excision is the best solution for such an impact. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does prominent anterior osteophytes at c6-7..scattered sclerotic changes.c5-6 multiple chronic appearing vertebral deformities & sclerotic changes are noted including biconcave surfaces of c3 & c4?
LymphNodeEnlragment: Reactive means that the LymphNodes may be "doing their job".Enlarging to help fight infection ...Read more
Patchy infiltration with fibrotic changes are seen in both lungs more marked in upper right lobe , costophrenic angles, heart and bony cage are norma ?
Seems benign : These are chronic, long-standing changes. Why was the x-Ray taken - for "routine checkup" or did you have symptoms, like a cough? Have you had a TB test? It would be best to have your physician advise you. The x-ray findings don't seem problematic (therefore, they seem benign). But ultimately, it does depend on your symptoms & the reason the test was ordered. Hope that helps. ...Read more
Ostiomeatal complexes bilaterally are patent. Septated sphenoid sinus is noted. Left anterior clinoid process is pneumatized". Please explain report?
Sinus: Sounds like a normal scan with common variations in anatomy. The bigger question is what are the symptoms that prompted the scan ...Read more
What does this mean? Impression normal pelvic ultrasound. The ovaries are normal, multiple small follicles are present bilaterally, largest 1.4 CM lt.
In CT Scan report : Few small subcentimeter sized mildly enhancing mesenteric and para-aortic lymphnodes are noted. Is this cause to cancer?
Normal: Perivascular (also known as perivenular or virchow-robin) spaces can be seen at any age and have bizarre or asymmetric configurations. They tend to become more numerous and larger as a person ages, and are benign. The only concern is if they are confused for a cystic space caused by a disease. Knowing where v-r spaces are likely to develop makes it much easier to accurately diagnose them. ...Read more
2yrs of sciatic pain. MRI shows minor DDD (L3-S1), as well as 2 prominent perineural cysts (S1-3). Are cysts the culprit?
US 3.8cm mildly complex ovarian cyst. Septations mainly in mid aspect of lesion and no vascularity seen. What does "mildly complex" mean?
Xray : Right lung upper zone shows patchy fibrocalcific changes. Remaining lung fields are clear. Evidence of bilateral bifid rib L anterior 4 R 3?
Consult ordering dr: Bifid ribs are congenital and usually are of no consequence and are variations of normal. Fibrocalcific disease is probably related to previous granulomatous infection. Most common is tuberculosis. In Southwest coccidiodomycosis is fungal cause. In midwest Blastomycosis is usually cause. Long term antibiotic treatment sounds like a chronic infection like one of the above. Various testing available ...Read more
Neck MRI shows "small cervical lymph nodes noted bilaterally prominent at level II with preserved helium". What does this mean?
Sounds normal.: We all have lymph nodes in our neck. Sometimes they get a little "prominent". The "preserved hilum" is a good thing because it means the lymph node looks normal otherwise. If there were no other findings, then this is OK. ...Read more
Dad, 66, is affected with "chronic ischemic changes in periventri white matter" and "disprop prominence of ventri system c/p to cortical sulci" cure?
Chronic ischemia: What you are seeing on the mr are common aging changes seen on mr. As for a "cure" being available, not at the moment and likely years before any solution. ...Read more
Usually benign,: but there are other ultrasound features to look for, such as an abnormal vascular pattern or asymmetric cortex thickening, which could make the lymph node sonographically abnormal even with a normal overall size/axis ratio. ...Read more
Persistent posterior knee curvilinear calcification and anterior knee preps teller sub centimeter opacities are noted.. What does this mean?
Hard to tell without: seeing your x-ray, but the body makes calcifications when it recovers from inflammation, or when a bone is broken. In older individuals, posterior knee calcifications are often hardened arteries, but at 21 that would be very unlikely. If you have your x-ray on a CD, I can explain it at HealthTap Concierge healthtap.com/saurbornmd. ...Read more
Mri no contrast "incidental superficial left ventral pontine tegmentum tiny 3 mmt2 hyper intensity in keeping with a perivascular space"? Help please!
3mm by 5mm slightly prominent hypoechoic area in right breast, well defined, round , wider than taller NO posterior shadowing, likely benign?folow up?
You are describing: a BIRADS 3(probably benign) lesion based on the ultrasound features. By definition, there is less than 2% chance of malignancy, and the usual management in an average risk patient is short interval follow up, typically every 6 months for 2 years. ...Read more
My PET read..symetric intense increase uptake in the bilateral palatine lingual tonsils. Hypermetobolic prominent level 2&5 nodes reactive. Cancer?
Unlikely tobe cancer: This PET report looks more like Tonsitlitis(Sore throat or Phayngitis). A clinical examination by a doctor will be more useful to make the correct diagnosis rather than relying on a PET scan. Let your PCP or ENT doctor guide you. Unless there are large lymph nodes in your neck, I would not think that you have cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In my Lumbar MRI, it reported "Incidentally noted tiny enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes; all measuring under 5 mm short axis diameter"?
Just as it says-: -like"O by the way " we noticed these nodes. Said that way as it was not the reason the MRI was done. It does not imply that U should not worry. They may B related 2 a prior infection or could B sentinel nodes from a tumor. They need 2 B evaluated & find the cause 4 their presence! ...Read more
