I have had 4 CT scans... 1- Pelvic/abdominal, 1- Thoratic/Aorta CTA, 1- Coronary CTA & 1- Brain CT.... I'm only 18. Is this a lot? Too much radiation?

Possibly


The radiation exposure risk from a Ct scan needs to be balanced with the benefit of the information. If you doctors are concerned about a life threatening condition, then the ct is warranted. radiation risk is cumulative - if these are the only scans you have for foreseeable future the overall risk is reduced. Also newer ct scanners reduce the overall radiation dose. Talk w/ your PCP.

This means the tissue has recently died in small areas (punctate) of the cerebellum. It is hard to tell (without examining, watching the changes, and knowing the history) to predict the outcome.

Noncardiacchest pain


Since cardiac origins have been ruled out, most likely musculoskeletal. Can U reproduce the pain by pressing on the sore spots? Is pain along edges of sternum or at junction of rib bone with cartilage? May be costochondritis (inflammation of the above sites). Moist heat to areas as well as NSAIDs as directed should help. If bodybuilding, go easier on chest routines.

Ok


There are always small nodes at celiac axis. SO if no change- should not be an issue! It is an area where inflammation or malignancy can show and that's why we check. Why was the CTA needed? That needs the followup?

Aorta


A tortuous aorta may have no symptoms. If there are symptoms they generally relate to obstructed blood flow related to the tortuosity. The symptom would depend on what wasn't getting good flow or perhaps some compression caused in adjacent organ by the tortuosity.

No such thing


A hernia is an abnormal protrusion of an organ through a defect -- this really can't happen with the aorta. An enlarged aorta may (incorrectly) be called a "hernia", but more appropriately that would be ectasia or an aneurysm.

How dilated?


Depends on how dilated the aorta is. If you are talking about the infra-renal aorta, than anything above 5cm is worrisome in men and >4.5cm in women. If you are talking about the thoracic aorta than anything greater than 6cm is worrisome. What are we worried about? Rupture.

It's a sign of aging - it's not any more dangerous than getting older is.
