Echo Poor Nodule
Diagnosed grossly hypothyroid /hashimoto, feeling worse as weeks go by, ultrasound scan reads thyroid demonstrates a heterogenous nodular echo texture?
An echocardiogram (also called an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen ...Read more
97 yo pt with thyromegaly on ct. U/S showed thyroid nodular goiter.1 right calcific and 2 left hyperechoic solid nodules. Should be worked up(Age)?
Yes..: I would probably work them up further. If the pt has not had a thyroid scan and you still not sure if you want to order or perform a biopsy that should give you a better idea what you are dealing with. However if the solid nodules are > 1 cm they should be biopsied. It also depends on your TSH levels, if elevated then it all depends on the size, if low TSH and hyper functioning then needs tx. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
Scan shows 2.1 CM nodule on thyroid
Hypervascular on color Doppler slight heterogenous echotexture / incomplete pseudocapsule RLLProb cancer or no?
Meaning of Thyroid U/S showed solid nodule 1.0 x 1.1 x 1.6 CM containing mild peripheral vascularity w/o calcification & rounded hypoechoic lymph node?
Us of thyroid 3 growing nodules 1.5cm + . Microcalcification, internal vascularity, iso & hypoechoic, solid. history stg III melanoma. Fna sched. Worry?
Tsh level 5.58, no symptoms, u/s found 1cm subtle hypoechoic nodule w/increased peripheral vascularity. Pcp ordered rai uptake scan before fna. Why?
I have no idea: Hi. It's not a hyperactive nodule...we know that from the TSH. I'd go straight to an FNA. The scan will show a "cold" nodule, which we already know it is, and will not help differentiate benign from cancer. FNA cytology (hopefully with gene testing) is all you need at this point. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Ct angio 64 slice, stress echo, 3d echo, cardiac MRI/MRA.. None of these fan detect soft plaque correct? What non invasive test can?
Echocardiography report, left ventricle, prominent septal bulge 1.2cm without tract obstruction, also resting wall motion abnormalities were present, spectral doppler shows impaired lv diastolic filli?
Complicated : To understand a report one needs to talk with one's physician. Resting wall motion abnormalities means areas of the heart are damaged and not contracting or squeezing normally. That is the heart "walls" are not moving correctly. Sometimes this can cause the wall inside the heart that separates the right and left side to "bulge". Impaired filling means the heart does not "relax" normally. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
+ PPD test, CT scan solitary pulmonary nodule. 5mos after nodule stable/slight increase pet2.9suv bronchoscopy inflammatory no cough doc said remov?
Curious: More information is required. The pet uptake (measured in standard uptake value or suv), is low level, but not low enough to guarantee benignity. Given age and + ppd, i would suspect this could be an active granuloma. Given your age, i would encourage consultation with a pulmonologist and full review of all your records first. Lung surgery is serious business. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Heart disease: Angina means chest pain caused by the heart. This usually comes from clogged arteries. As the arteries initially clog, blood can still get around the blockage and is reversible. This can eventually progress to a worsening blockage where blood can't get around it. This usually results in what is known as a heart attack. Reversible is good but it's important to prevent it from getting worse. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ct angiogram shows non calcified opacity on middle lobe 4mm. Appearance of benign intrapulmonary lymph node on lung with no pleural abnormalites.
Opacity: The question to your doctor should be - is this an incidental pulmonary nodule or something more concerning. If the ct angio was done for something completely unrelated, and it was a true incidental finding, some guidelines say that under a certain size (4mm) for low risk patients (no smoking, etc), then no follow up is needed. Otherwise a biopsy or interval imaging followup is appropriate. ...Read more
Nodules- thyroid us:Superior hypoechoic vascular nodule 7x6x5 mm.Mid lobe hypoechoic nodule 3x4x2 mm. Sup vascular nodule measuring 10x8x5. Worries?
Could a chest Ct scan with contrast, stress echo, cardiac MRI w/CO, 3d echo twice, miss a blocked artery CAD? Done by mayo clinic AZ.Have chest pain.
Ultrasound tech. Enlarged cervical lymph node x 2 years. Slight increase in size. No normal hilum. Peripheral vascularity. Normal CT with contrast. ??
Biopsy: Although the size of lymph nodes can fluctuate (especially in the cervical or submandibular region), a chronically enlarged lymph node that is not related to an acute illness with or without features such as tenderness, hard consistency and mobility should be investigated further. Imaging is most of the time unrevealing and a biopsy is warranted to establish a diagnosis and/or reassure. ...Read more
Ct chest adrenal nodule 1.9 CM right. Lungs demonstrate babisalar dependent atelectasis small subpleural bullae noted right up lobe trace pericardial?
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
