Cect whole abd. With rectal contrast few tiny right renal cortical cysts, kidneys show mildly lobulated outline. Mild thickening sigmoid mucosal folds?
No practical alarm..: The findings of kidney cysts and lobulated outline pose no practical risk to you unless you have family history of adult polycystic kidney disease with hypertension. At most, get an kidney ultrasound for follow-up on renal cysts in 2-3 yrs; if benign, further follow-up is not warranted. But, in doubt? Ask doctor timely. ...Read more
Interpret CT: mild thickening of distal sigmoid & rectal wall w/o adjacent fatty stranding. Loops of mild distended sm bowel w/o clear transition zone?
Diverticulosis: and possibly prior episode of diverticulitis could present this way. So too does infected segment or inflammation. The mild dilated small bowel in the current context is not as much of concern as the condition of the colon. Best discuss these findings with your doctor to put them into a good clinical picture.

Cystic lesion 6.3x4.0cm abuts small bowel. Located between bowl loops and splenic flexture. Is this cancer. Had CT scan for slight pain. No obstruct.
Highly Unlikely: What you are describing sounds like a mesenteric cyst. Cancers can develop in these cysts, but the odds are probably "one in a million". Unfortunately, there's not much you can do with these other than excision, sometimes requiring removal of the adjacent intestine. Please see a surgeon with extensive laparoscopic experience--they can help you sort this out and decide if surgery is needed. ...Read more

First ct scan diverticulitis thought he had fistula. Second Ct scan radiologist said no fistula bowel thickening maybe sigmoid abscess ct be wrong?
Not necessarily: The interpretation of the same ct scan can be changed according to the clinical picture. The clinical picture has support the ct scan and until it would the reading of the ct scan can change. So, it is a fluid situation , it is not rigid. Reading of the ct has to match the clinical condition of the person. I hope this helps. ...Read more

Probably normal: When a radiologist reads a finding on a scan as nonspecific and subtle, it often has no clinical significance. The only way to tell in your situation is to see your doctor, who can match up your symptoms with the areas that were mentioned by the radiologist, to determine if it sounds as though any further work up would be necessary. Good luck. ...Read more
Now my ct scan showing sutble residual terminal ileal thickning and ileocecal junction what is finding?
Can "mild colitis' found on colonscopy biopsy cause small nodes or fat deposits in abdominal ct scan? MRCP & EUS normal. I'm worried, Blood normal.
Maybe lymph nodes: colitis doesn't cause fat. I can cause lymph nodes to enlarge. LN enlargement is not abnormal if there is adjacent inflammation. With all other things being OK, I would not worry. If you are, ask your doctor to do follow up scans. Try to avoid CT due to the added radiation. ...Read more

Wrong: Ct scanning of the abdomen and pelvis shows the colon, yes, but not subtle mucosal lesions such as early cancer. It shows your internal organs such as the liver, spleen, kidneys and pancreas in great detail. It also shows your small intestinal and the numerous blood vessels. It can evaluate the connective tissue and fat to uncover inflammatory conditions or infections. ...Read more
Do small nodes seen ct scan near colon warrant ct scan follow up after colonscopy found 'mild colitis' ? This would be 5th ct scan in 6 yrs.
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
