Cea Pericardial Fluid
Had a cardiac mri. Finding: mild lv cavity dilation, normal lv systolic function; lvef 62%.Trivial pericardial & pleural effusion?
Sounds pretty normal: Ef is normal, tiny effusions are nothing to worry about. Was valvular function normal - ie no stenosis or regurgitation? Also, how much dilation? Was a volume given? Would followup with a cardiologist and make sure you optimize your therapy for high blood pressure among other conditions. The lv dilation and pericardial effusions could be followed with echocardiography. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Obliterated costophrenic angle,pleural effusion,normal blood picture&WBCs count,normal liver & kidney function tests,normal CA 19-9,cause of effusion?
Cardiac mri showed mod-large pericardial effusion 4 wks ago. Chest CT W/ CONTRAST showed no pericardial effusion. Why would that be. Is CT as good??
Why would echo show small pericardial effusion, MRI show mod-large pericardial effusion. On the MRI it was located inferior to LV & RV. ?
Different techniques: For quantification, the MRI is a better technique and more precise. Having a small pericardial effusion is seen in perfectly normal people however a moderate to large pericardial effusion's is abnormal and should be closely followed up with your doctor. More weight should be put on the findings of the MRI. ...Read more

Adrenal eval: Hi. The adrenal nodule needs to be evaluated. What were the Hounsfield units on the non-contrast scan of the nodule? Your endocrinologist will determine: 1) if it's producing any hormones, and 2) if it's growing. If high Hounsfield units, it needs sooner evaluation. Any hirsutism, amenorrhea, diabetes, serious high blood pressure, sweating, headache, palpitations, etc? Good luck! ...Read more
Decreased perfusion: Oligo can be either loss of fluid or decreased production. A stressed infant will shunt oxygenated blood to more vital organs, less renal perfusion, therefore less urine produced. Anything that decreases placental perfusion can cause it (abruption or placental separation, poor implantation, vascular problems, clots, uterine abnls, etc). There are too many causes to list here, ask your ob. ...Read more
My mother has ovarian cancer, c. diff., pulmonary vascular congestion, bibasilar pleural effusions and cardiomegaly. Is prognosis days, weeks, etc.?
Poor, but...: Clinically & obviously, sorry to say your mom's life expectancy would be not long, but how long specifically is beyond someone online can suggest.

Mesothelioma induced pleural effusion, chemo failed,surgical given to adhese the gaps between mesothelium tissue to improve pleural effusion.
What does "nodularity of visceral pleura" mean on CT scan? Was diagnosis with pleurisy and pleural effusion with atelectasis.
No pleural mass in chest CT scan,clear pleural exudate (lab results say it is exudate not transudate).No fever or cough. Rule out lung cancer?
Lung Cancer unlikely: In a 30 year old, Lung cancer is not a likely cause of pleural effusion. Depending on other test results and symptoms(?any Fever), TB is one diagnosis high on the list. Your doctor should do further testing for TB and you may need emiric Anti-TB treatment if your fluid keeps reaccumulating or if you have fever on an ongoing basis and if there is significant weight loss. ESR is a useful test to do. ...Read more
