Doctor insights on:
Not a Stone: Stones or calcifications will block the ultrasound beam and cause a sonic shadow. An echogenic focus produces more echoes and appears brighter than surrounding tissues. Small ones in the liver are typically hemangiomas but they can represent a variety of lesions. ...Read more
Subcentimeter hypodense nodule on left thyroid lobe with coarse focus of calcification---subcentimeter left thyroid nodule.Non-specific in nature.
Thyroid nodules: Most nodules less than 1 cm are not concerning and can be monitored with periodic ultrasounds. Some features such as calcification may heighten concern. Much more information is necessary in your situation. Is there family history of thyroid cancer, personal history of hyper or hypothyroidism, and radiation exposure? You need to discuss this with an endocrinologist and arrange a treatment plan. ...Read more
Yes: Liver hemangiomas are benign, common, and harmless. Angiosarcomas, the malignant counterpart, is extremely rare and not treatable in any case. ...Read more

LIVER LESION EVAL: A Liver Lesion identified on ultrasound needs to be followed closely. You need to have LABS monitered and evaluation for hepatitis. A repeat Ultrasound or potentially Abdominal MRI may be needed. Also Consult with a GI specialist, to insure that a biopsy is not warranted. ...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: part of the body was scanned? Please post the question again with some additional info. Ultrasounds are performed on nearly every part of the body, so there is no way to respond to the question without knowing what specifically was scanned. Was it the breast? ...Read more
Small lobulated heterogeneously enhancing isodense mass at upper pole of left kidney measuring 2.8x2.4 cm. Please help?
Ask your doctor...: More info on your general health profile will help decision-making. Clinically, nowadays, you have 3 reasonable options to follow including: 1, if young and healthy, do laparoscopic partial nephrectomy; 2. if reluctant, do biopsy to decide benignancy or malignancy - if malignant, operate as that in 1.; if benign, watch and see; 3.consider radio-frequency or cryo ablation.

CT abdomen w contrast, liver norm size, enhance patern. Left heptic lobe ant. subcaplar reg. smal 5mm hyperdens focus probl cysts too small to charize?
21st century problem: We are so good at seeing little stuff, we can chase our tails. It depends on clinical setting. Someone with known cancer may need to be investigated for a metastasis, but a healthy young pt. has little risk of cancer with a liver "incidentaloma". Some might follow with ultrasound in "an appropriate clinical interval" poss. 6 months. This is a good area for U/S to see lesions and no x-ray exposure. ...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

Kub ultrasound finding of anechoic focus at the middle pole measuring 1.5x1.5cm, left kidney. Minimal pelvocaliectasia right kidney.What treatment?
Probably benign: A description of an anechoic focus in the kidney typically refers to a cyst or a cystic lesion. Minimal pelvocaliectasis typically refers to very mild dilatation of the pelvis & calyces which is where urine drained into before it flow out into the ureter. These findings do not sound concerning as pelvocaliectasis may occur when you have a full bladder. Please check with your doctor to be sure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

CT - 5.8x6.4cm rnd complex cystic mass in posterior pelvis inseparable from adjacent sigmoid colon. Demonstrates lobulated enhancing nodule centrally.
Not sure: A posterior pelvic complex cystic mass in a 65-year-old woman can have many potential causes. This needs to be checked out to find the actual cause and to consider treatment options. You should see a gastroenterologist for further evaluation, if you're not already seeing one. ...Read more
F,48. Pls detail(1)"nonspec hyperintense FLAIR foci involving L.parietal+bilateral.frontal.lobes" +(2)"signal void along main intracranial vasculature?
Radiology terms: This is specialized radiology terminology and isn't helpful by itself. The radiologist should provide a conclusion at end of report as to what it all means. This must then be interpreted in context of what symptoms led to study in first place. Too much for any of us to answer in this format. Talk to the doctor who ordered the study. Good luck. ...Read more

Both of my thyroid lobes demonstrate heterogeneous echotexture without focal nodule. right lobe measures L: 3.37 cm, left lobe measures L: 3.33 cm?
Thyroid: A heterogeneous, normal sized thyroid may not mean much, or it could indicate one of a number of inflammatory/infiltrative processes i.e. thyroiditis. Sometimes symptoms may not be noticed. The thyroid US findings must be interpreted in conjunction with lab values/thyroid function tests, symptoms, and clinical findings to assess the significance, so best bet is to discuss with your doc. ...Read more
