Hello sir, "Two ecogenic foci of size 4.4-5 mm and 5-5.5 mm noted in left kidney" what does mean?

Hello sir, "Two ecogenic foci of size 4.4-5 mm and 5-5.5 mm noted in left kidney" what does mean?

Stones: Echo producing structures of that size in the kidney are usually stones. I would recommend a kidney stone protocol CT scan without contrast for further clarification ...Read more

A "hypo-dense foci in the left thyroid lobe" was found during CT w/ contrast of head and neck. What does this mean?

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.

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

What does 2 hyperintense foci in the right frontal white matter and 1 hyperintense focus in the left frontal white matter mean? Migraine 20yo

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

MRI report....multiple nonspecific small subcortical foci of T2 prolongation in the left cerebrum. I'm 43 and started having migraine with aura at 41.

Its unusual: To start having migraine at 41. Vasculitis is a consideration. I would want to know if you had an elevated CRP, sed rate or a positive ANA test. Consultation with a neurologist is advised if not already done. ...Read more

Mri shows "there r tiny three foci of 3 mm subtle increased signal in right frontal lobe white matter? I feel block left side body from head down 2 leg

Normal?: Tiny foci of signal abnormalities in the white matter are common on mri. Typically 1 for each decade of life is considered normal, so for your age 3-4 would be okay. It is especially common in patients with migraine. ...Read more

What does the results few tiny nonenhancing T2/FLAIR signal foci within the subcortical frontal & right temporal white matter of an MRI brain scan? Scan was done for numbness on left side

It depends: Usually these types of findings are nonspecific, and most likely age related. They are generally asymptotic and there is no treatment. Occasionally they are a sign of other disorders, so speak to your physician to decide whether there is any follow up needed. ...Read more

Subcortical foci of increased signal are present suggestive of some sclerosis and marrow reactive changes in the left hip joint. There is a subcortical cyst in the acetabulum on the right hip measuring 5 mm - what does this mean?

Subcortical foci of increased signal are present suggestive of some sclerosis and marrow reactive changes in the left hip joint. There is a subcortical cyst in the acetabulum on the right hip measuring 5 mm - what does this mean?

The cyst is: An "incidental" finding of no clinical significance. The "reactive marrow and sclerosis indicates relatively RECENT INJURY to the hip joint or early degenerative arthritis

Left ovary numerous t2 hyperintense foci w/o abnormal enhancement likely folicular cyst also in right ovary. T2 hyperintense focus in left hemipelvis 1.5 x 1.7 x 2.6 CM physiologic fluid noted pelvis?

Probably normal: This is not a particularly abnormal imaging of the ovaries. Practically everyone of reproductive age has ovarian follicles noted. Ovaries make these for a living. Would have to put it into context of your symptoms to interpret the significance. ...Read more

What does nonspecific subcortical and periventricular foci mean?

What does nonspecific subcortical and periventricular foci mean?

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

What is meant by t2 flair hyperintense foci in brain?

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

Clacific foci in right side region of brain Means what the problem?

Calicifications: There are quite a few causes of calcifications in the brain, and the specific size, location, and pattern are important. 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. Best to review your scan results with your doctor. ...Read more

What does it mean for the endometrium: Normal thickness but of somewhat heterogenous echo texture and with several echgenic foci with in?

Endometrial contents: This means that the sonogram detected something inside of the cavity but that they were unable to determine exactly what it was. This is typically followed up with an endometrial biopsy and some method to evaluate the cavity. The two most common approaches are a sonohystogram or a hysteroscopy ...Read more

This is: A relatively nonspecific ultrasound description, so there is no way to tell exactly what it is at this point. A CT or MRI may be necessary to evaluate further. It could be a kidney stone, benign mass, or malignant mass. ...Read more

Could you explain my report. Stable foci of nodular pleural thickening measuring 3 mm along right minor fissure and 4 mm along right lateral inferior?

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

Re: MRI brain - what is foci and what is significance of size, number and locations?

Re: MRI brain - what is foci and what is significance of size, number and locations?

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
