Sonogram says liver is increased in echogenicity and coarse echotexture compatible with fatty infiltration. Liver measures 15.7cm in length. Concerned?
Fatty liver: Lose weight if overweight, cut out alcohol if using; cut out simple sugars, starches, decrease fat in diet. Get followed up. Sometimes, fatty liver leads to chronic inflammation, even scarring in the liver. Check meds with doc. Can be reversible, but needs diligence and follow up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Several things: Heterogenous pattern of liver on ultrasound can mean liver disease such as cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis.Metatatic disease, lymphoproliferative diseasse, and fatth liver. Fatty liver usually has increased echogencity. Left lobe can enlarge to compensate for loss of liver function as long this as normal appearance to its echogenicity. Blood tests, physical examination, history, biopsy help. ...Read more
Abdominal ultrasound:what does the following mean?"the liver shows mildly increased echogenicity compatible with fatty infiltration.No focal hepatic
Fatty infiltration : Is also called fatty liver. This is a condition known as steatosis in medical terms. Steatosis can lead to liver damage which can result in cirrhosis. Steatosis is associated with metabolic syndrome which is a collection of problems including diabetes and high blood pressure. You need to see your doctor and possibly a gastroenterologist if you liver labs are too bad. Time to start eating healthy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Axillary mass: Needs to be excised. See a surgeon. ...Read more
LIVER ENLARGED & ECHOGENIC CONSISTENT WITH NONSPECIFIC HEPATIC PARENCHYMAL DISEASE SUCH AS STEATOSIS. NO FOCAL MASS IS SEEN.Spleen size 16cm??
See doctor: The size of the spleen is of note. This enlarges for many reasons. The liver also enlarged is of concern as well. There should be a coordinated laboratory values to help make sense of imaging results. Not a good idea to speculate on cause without more data. Speak to your doctor for more data ...Read more

1.5x0.6x1.1.1cm ill defined heterogeneous hypoechoic area w/internal vascularity no calcification found on heterogeneous right thyroid lobe. Explain?
Thyroid nodule: You need to see your endocrinologist for interpretation of this. A 1.5 cm thyroid nodule probably should be biopsied, although the likeihood of this being cancer is low (probably less than 10%). A nodule among a multinodular gland is less of a concern, as is a nodule in a hashimotos gland. All this needs to be examined. ...Read more
What do thyroid US results mean? Homogeneous echogenicity. Multiple nodules bilaterally, no cysts ID'd. Heterogeneous parenchyma w/bilateral nodules.
Thyroid nodules: Did they measure the largest nodules? Thyroid nodules are fairly common, and the vast majority of them are not cancerous, but if one is above 1 cm, a biopsy may be considered (there's some variation in how thyroid nodules are managed). Some can give you hyperthyroidism. I'd speak with your doctor or an endocrinologist about further steps. ...Read more
Complex cystic hypoechoic nodules right parotid gland with internal vascular septations &calcifications Echogenic foci Biopsy in future. Inconclusive?
Well circumscribed hypoechoic 4.8 cm cystic mass. Thickened internal septations, perifpheral mural nodularity and calcification. Pain upper abdomen.
Ovarian: I assume the report is describing an ovarian cyst which may be fluid filled. If so, your gynecologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. It is not clear if this is the cause of your abdominal discomfort since the discomfort is not in the pelvic area. Other imaging studies may be recommended. ...Read more
What does "heterogenously echogenic lesion within left ovary" mean? Also says "mild heterogeneous posterior acoustic shadowing".
Indeterminate lesion: By far the most common cystic ovarian lesions are benign functional ovarian cysts. When a lesion doesn't follow a definitely benign imaging characteristics (heterogenous or shadowing) on ultrasound, it requires either follow up to resolution and/or further evaluation including MRI in some instances. Without seeing the images, we can only make guess. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My ultrasonography report say : diffusely increased parenchymal echogenicity of the liver of homogenous texture(bright liver) correlation liver functn?
Liver US result: This means that the ordering physician has to review the blood tests (liver enzyme tests) to interpret the meaning of the ultrasound findings. There is no single cause of increased echogenicity of the liver, so it's not safe for you to guess at a diagnosis online. ...Read more
