Down Syndrome Vs Normal Ultrasound
Slightly coarse echotexture on pancrease (pancrelipase) ultrasound follow up with normal MRI results which one is more accurte had slight discomfort upper right tom?
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Echogenic focus on LV, fullness of left pelvicalyceal system.found in anomalies scan at 22nd week. Does it indicates down syndrome?
Genetic testing: We can not conclude the genetic status of the baby based only on these findings. This typically would prompt further testing. There are blood tests that are commonly done to help assess the risk of the genetic abnormalities during the 1st and 2nd trimester of pregnancy. Contact your doctor to determine if these were done and schedule a visit to discuss the sonogram findings in detail. ...Read more
24 f, uterus measures 7.45 x 8.8 x 3.42cm. It is ante-verted flexed position and echogenic pattern. Uterus size increased in 1year. What's this mean?
Uterus: The two main things that come to mind are early fibroids and adenomyosis. A nonspecific enlargement of the uterus outside of pregnancy is often times seen in adenomyosis. Though I have to tell you, the measurements you are giving here are fairly normal uterine size. It could also be the technique used to measure and not a true enlargement. ...Read more
1 m pelvic ab back pain. Ct shows: prominent spleen/liver follow up ultrasound shows: r 2.5 CM simple cyst/ l 4.0cm abnormal structure on ovary. What could it be?
Is liver measuring 15.1 CM craniocaudal normal? What is a normal range? Ultrasound report said no acute abnormalities in liver or kidney. Concerns?
My CT scan showed polycystic ovaries and a blood test showed prolactin of 4.37 iu/l. Are the two related?What is the normal prolactin range?
Possible: Depending on how early the ultrasound was done. It is impossible to tell from the early ultrasounds and even some of the later ultrasounds do not show downs syndrome. If the Alpha feta protein level drawn is high the odds are higher that you might have a down's baby. Chorionic villous sampling chromosomes is the only way to know for sure prior to birth. ...Read more
Thyroid US repeated after 6mos. 2nd nodule on Rt. now, labs are lowside normal. Left sideMildly heterogeneous. What does this mean?
My baby born recently and his ultrasound report shows bilateral prominent foetal renal pelvis (right 4.8mm & left 7.8 mm). What is the risk factor?
Needs followup: There is a higher risk of a urinary tract problem if the measurement is greater than 10 mm on either side. At this point the study should be repeated again after 4-6 wks and it will sometimes normalize. ...Read more
Isolated GGT elevation. Range 80-170 for 6 month. All other liver labs normal. Normal ultrasound and normal doppler ultrasound. Could this be cirhosis?
No: Trust you're taking no meds that could cause this. About one person in 1000 has a genetic kink that causes lifetime elevated ggt. These folks are accused of being secret drunkards, and I have to write one or two letters a year to concerned employers, probation officers, etc. This is not "invisible cirrhosis" unless there's something you didn't share. ...Read more
What connection is my drs missing? Diagnosed P.O.T.S. Metabolic syndrome. normal female hormones, no female parts) Dizzy leg pain. Abnor calc, D labs
What does this mean? Impression normal pelvic ultrasound. The ovaries are normal, multiple small follicles are present bilaterally, largest 1.4 CM lt.
Left pelvic pain, bilateral ovarian cyst R 2.8 L 2.4, Lcyst septated (CUL-DE-SAC normal. No fluid or mass)Normal Doppler and spectral limits. Meaning?
Small septated cyst: Cysts that small are frequently part of normal ovulation. A cyst is simply a fluid filled sac on the ovary. A septated cyst means that there is a tissue wall dividing the cyst into at least two parts. A small septated cyst can still be normal but sometimes the ultrasound is repeated to make sure that it goes away as most do. The other things mentioned are normal. Best Wishes! ...Read more

My wife is 23 weeks pregnant, the ultrasound report shows bilateral prominent foetal renal pelvis (right 7mm & left 11 mm). What is the risk factor?
Mild at present: This is mild bilateral fetal hydronephrosis & 11 mm is cut-off for mild hydronephrosis. Wife's OB will be ordering further maternal/fetal ultrasounds till she delivers. Volume of amniotic fluid will be checked, possible progression of hydronephrosis, sex of baby (if male ?Urethral valves), appearance of bladder + ureters, if seen. Recommend prenatal pedi. Urology consultation if hydro. Increases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My pelvic ultrasound results say focus of heterogeneous echogenicity at the mid endometrial canal may reflect polyp or thrombus. Is this bad?
After ruling out all the etiologies of elevated lfts with prior normal baseline and zero risk factors 24 asymptomatic m, what will a liver biopsy add?
Is a liver size of 15 CM on ultrasound enlarged for a 5'4" 138 lb 20 y old female? Ultrasound says "negative right upper quadrant ultrasound."
Just right: That sounds about the right dimension seen of the liver. Pay attention more to things like fatty infiltration or densities. It seems there was a concentration on RUQ like for the gallbladder but it seems there is nothing to worry about. Just keep it healthy now. ...Read more
18 months ago, left inguinal ultrasound showed nonspecific inflammatory lymphadenopathy with diameters between 5mm and 7mm. Feel without change. Worry?
Monitor, don't worry: If the lymph nodes have not changed in 18 months, you have not had undesired weight loss, night sweats, fevers, or increase in size, the odds of a pathologic condition is very low. If you still cannot stop worrying, it can be biopsied, but why get a scar for such a low risk lesion. Only address if it changes ...Read more
