Computed Tomography (Definition)

Ct uses xrays taken an 360 degrees combined with a computer to see"inside" the body. The table moves as the xray tube and detectors spin around the patient 10 times a second or more! The image shows excellent soft tissue detail, enhanced with injection of intravenous contrast or oral contrast. This way the body is shown in slices, in any plane, usually axially, but ...Read more

Hematuria: Please go to a nephrologist. Microscopic hematuria can be caused by several factors, some very normal. You need a good urinalysis, microscopic analysis, CBC/metabolic panel, 24hr urine. A nephrologist can tell you if cystoscopy, biopsy, or more tests are needed. Consider switching SIngulair (montelukast). Family history of IgA nephropathy or Thallasemia? Read the link. Good luck.

Asymptomatic hematur: Asymptomatic microscopic hematuria if accompanied with proteinuria or abnormal renal function require renal workup. If normal renal function with absence of proteinuria then urology work up is indicated which could include a cystoscopy

My husband was having blood in urine without pain hospitalized CT scan cystoscopy done found polyp sent for histopath low grade malignancy?

My husband was having blood in urine without pain hospitalized CT scan cystoscopy done found polyp sent for histopath low grade malignancy?

I think: I think you mean he had a low grade blad tumor. He will need periodic cystoscopy to check for recurrent tumors. Every 3 mth for the first yr. If no recurrence, every 6 months for 2 more years. If no recurrence, annually thereafter. Kidney pelvis (both) and ureters will be checked with CT-IVP with contrast once yrly bec the lining epithelium is same as the bladder epithelium. Prognosis low grade good

No: You have had all the necessary tests by 2 urologists and nothing was found. Most likely the hematuria was from your prostate. If there was bladder tumor or kidney tumor or renal pelvic tumor the studies you had would have been diagnostic. If hematuria recurs, go back to your urologist. It sounds like you are OK.

Male 34 cumadin patient with on and off gross hematuria. Ct scan showed 1mm cal in bladder, cytology and cytoscopy (no cal located) came back normal.?

Here are some. ..: Your reported evaluation for recurrent gross hematuria is clinically sufficient. But, conducting emergent cystoscopy right at the time seeing gross bloody urine may help approximate or verify the origin of bleeding if personal / professional collaboration is available. Beyond that, one has to adopt, adapt to, and cope with what they have and live on. No cure but modify to live on.

Are the following tests sufficient for recurring hematuria : 2 CT, 2 cystoscopies and 2 US in august, and then ultrasounds in march, may & july 2016?

Hematuris: The tests are not showing problems. At least no obvious tumor polyp etc. Hematuria though is not normanormal. Talk to your provider although frustrating that no answer unfortunately sometimes problems are not identified even with appropriate evaluation. If hematuria not resolving more evaluation needed

I just was asking questions about my dad who had prostate ca about 5 years ago and on routine visit had hematuria-all Ct's, cystoscopy/ok still has it?

Hematuria is not OK: Hematuria (blood in the urine) is not OK. If your dad is still bleeding in the urine, you should continue to visit your doctor until the issues is resolved. In a patient who had prostate cancer, the causes include infection, occult occurence or secondary to therapy (often radiation changes).

Micro hematuria 2yrs both cystoscopy & upper CT negative urinalysis hemoglobin small, RBC 2-5. Dr says this is common for some people. Should I worry?

Micro hematuria 2yrs both cystoscopy & upper CT negative urinalysis hemoglobin small, RBC 2-5. Dr says this is common for some people. Should I worry?

Donot worry: This condition is called " idiopathic hematuria", which simply means that it is not due to any disease therefore Donot worry. Also please remember that it does not always go away, next time you have a urine test with a different doctor, he may tell you the same. Please remember you Donot need to undergo the tests again. Your doctor is right when he says that you should not worry.

Painless hemturia: Is always concerning for occult malignancy, although it would be rare at your age. You should seek consutlation from a urology specialist.

Microscopic hematuria with normal CT scan and cysto. Only finding is live is a hypodensity 15x10mm what to do next?

Observation: More than half the time, no cause for microscopic hematuria is identified. Could be idiopathic" hematuria, which just means we can't find an explanation. If there is also protein in the urine, then eval by a nephrologist may be useful. If the amount of blood in the urine increases over time, or if there is ever visible blood (gross hematuria), then repeat evaluation is indicated.

Ct scan showed partially distended bladder. What does that mean!? Also have microscopic hematuria.

Normal: A partially distended urinary bladder is a frequest normal finding on a ct scan. This appearance of the bladder is unrelated to your microhematuria.

had episode of gross hematuria. No infection. CT scan shows 2 non obstructing stones. Could stones have caused the hematuria?

Possible but: Are the2 stones in the kidney area or the ureter? What size? GROSS hematuria from small non obstructing stone would be quite unusual. In this context, cystoscopy to rule out bladder tumor and contrast CT-IVP with delayed films to rule out transitional cell tmr (the lining of the urinary tract)of a renal pelvis or ureter is a prudent diagnostic approach. The stones should be followed. Hope all turns well

Ct Scan (Definition)

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
