Fecal Matter In Lungs
Prob diet related: Flecks of white stuff are probably diet related. Sometimes some meds have casings that pass undigested. Parasites can be white-but generally if you can see them, they will be moving (worms). Entirely white stools can be seen after taking barium for a test, some meds, or with blockage to the flow of bile. That last one needs medical evaluation-potentially serious stuff there. ...Read more

When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient.

That means most chemotherapy is completely metabolized to inactive products with in hrs to days after administration.

Bowel perforation?: Within the abdominal/pelvic cavity, the only normal place to find air is within the bowel lumen.

Ct of abdomen- granular high attenuation material in both kidneys. Multiple stones in each kidney. Uniform attenuation in liver. What does this mean?
Hard to be sure...: The description "granular high attenuation in kidneys" is not descriptive enough to know what the radiologist definitely meant. They should have put their interpretation of this finding in the impression. It may be related to the kidney stones they mention. Make sure you clarify with your doc. The phrase "uniform attenuation in the liver" is another way of saying nothing abnormal seen in liver. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
