A "hypo-dense foci in the left thyroid lobe" was found during CT w/ contrast of head and neck. What does this mean?
Hypo:Low; Hyper:High: Most medical terminology just descriptive, not implying any great understanding or insight. Foci means “spot”, location. Go slow, look up terms. The thyroid is a cystic gland, i.e. Cells which manufacture & secrete proteins into the water around the cells & producing accumulations of extracellular material. Lower density than surrounding tissue c/c/w cyst, just? Larger than usual, ca ↓↓↓ likely. ...Read more

Meaning of Foci of increased radiotracer uptake anterior left ribs 5th 6th 7th. Clinical history for possible trauma and radiographic correlation.
Bone scan: I assume this is a bone scan. Increased uptake means a site of abnormal increased bone metabolic activity, which is usually a response to trauma, infection, inflammation, or neoplasm. When multiple foci line up along successive ribs, it is almost invariably due to trauma. If it is along the anterior margins of the ribs, it could also be costcochondritis. ...Read more

Non-specific finding: The findings you list are non-specific but are frequently seen in people with a history of migraines. It may be advisable to meet with a neurologist who can go over your history, review the reason the MRI was obtained in the first place and perform a detailed neurological exam to determine if further testing is required. ...Read more

It means: There are small areas of MRI signal changes in the white matter of your brain next to the ventricles and grey matter (cortex). Usually this is an incidental, age-related finding. Sometimes it can be a sign of other white matter diseases like MS. The finding has to be correlated with your clinical picture to assess the significance, so talk to your doc about the results. ...Read more
Various causes: T2 flair is a highly sensitive but not very specific imaging protocol in mri. Without an idea of what you are looking for, the differential becomes very broad. Assuming you are a healthy 19 year old, you could see these findings with migraine, hypertension, a recent viral illness, lymes" disease, CNS infammation, etc. You should see the physician who requested the study and discuss the results. ...Read more

One common cause of a single calcified focus on a CT scan of the brain is a parasitic infection called cysticercosis. Other causes include vascular calcifications from atherosclerosis.

There are lots: Of questions here. While you don't say, this sounds like a report from an imaging test such as a CT/MRI of the lung. The pleura is a thin membrane that covers the lungs. Thickening results from scarring, infection, tumors, etc. Unfortunately, most NODULAR pleural thickening is the result of cancer. either metastatic from the lung, breast or elsewhere, or mesothelioma. Your doctor can elaborate. ...Read more

Nonspecific: Foci indicates scattered lesions in different areas of the brain and need clinical correlation to diagnose significance. If the lesions are changing in size, number, location, and also are causing neurological symptoms, this likely is consistent with multiple sclerosis, but a variety of other possibilities could be considered. Discuss fully with your doctor. ...Read more
