35yr female,mri showed tumor on t6,pet scan showed hypermetabolism in lymph nodes neck,chest ,med.focal uptake in esophagus.what can that be? Lymphoma

35yr female,mri showed tumor on t6,pet scan showed hypermetabolism in lymph nodes neck,chest ,med.focal uptake in esophagus.what can that be? Lymphoma

Lymphoma: A biopsy of the lymph node or one of the other sites is required to establish a diagnosis. The T6 lesion can be biopsied and bone cement placed in the vertebral body (kyphoplasty/vertebroplasty) if the pain is significant between the shoulder blades. An oncologist can provide a plan for treatment. ...Read more

Got my bone scan. Multifocal uptake seen in mid to distal radius and ulna? Subtle uptake in distal aspects of both bones but no bony lesions? Meaning?

Got my bone scan. Multifocal uptake seen in mid to distal radius and ulna? Subtle uptake in distal aspects of both bones but no bony lesions? Meaning?

Confused: We cannot answer this question without knowing the reason for the bone scan. Also, what type of scan was it? Without any background there are many reasons for uptake: trauma, fracture healing, tumors, cancer, arthritis...etc. what are your symptoms? Do you have pain? ...Read more

My PET read..symetric intense increase uptake in the bilateral palatine lingual tonsils. Hypermetobolic prominent level 2&5 nodes reactive. Cancer?

My PET read..symetric intense increase uptake in the bilateral palatine lingual tonsils. Hypermetobolic prominent level 2&5 nodes reactive. Cancer?

Unlikely tobe cancer: This PET report looks more like Tonsitlitis(Sore throat or Phayngitis). A clinical examination by a doctor will be more useful to make the correct diagnosis rather than relying on a PET scan. Let your PCP or ENT doctor guide you. Unless there are large lymph nodes in your neck, I would not think that you have cancer. ...Read more

Thyroid ultrasound show mild diffused parenchymal hyper vasuclarity.3mm hyperechoic nodule in the lateral aspect in the left lobe thyroid normal > tsh?

Possibly thyroiditis: Hypervascularity is a typical finding in people with underlying autoimmune thyroiditis (hashimoto's or graves disease). The 3 mm nodule is likely of no significance and can be watched. You need to know your TSH level. Getting thyroid antibodies (thyroid peroxidase, thyroglobulin antibodies) would be helpful in making a diagnosis. ...Read more

Brain spect grossly irregular activity in large area cerebral cortex with relative sparing of the occipital region possibly the R frontal area
Ideas?

Is it your scan?: Presumably you didn't just wander into a nuclear medicine facility & make an impulse purchase. Your doctor ordered the scan for a reason. What is the reason? Please also repost & state what your doctor's "ideas" about the scan are; or if you have not asked your doctor, please relate why not. ...Read more

A very faint subpleural nodular density in the left lower lobe posterolaterally noted on CT Scan along with minor nodularity to posterior lung bases?

A very faint subpleural nodular density in the left lower lobe posterolaterally  noted on CT Scan along with minor nodularity to posterior lung bases?

Do they give a size: for the "subpleural nodular density"? There are a litany of potential causes, from chronic to acute, from inflammatory to neoplastic, from no concern to worrisome. More specific info on the nodule and any relevant clinical history would help narrow it down. ...Read more

Nodule in l thyroid vth faint focal calcification, multiple enlargd lymph nodes in l cervical regn(surgical level3).Papillary carcinoma vth metastasis?

Thyroid cancer: Did you have a biopsy? An fna (fine needle aspirate) could be performed where a thin needle is used to collect cells from the thyroid nodule. This sample is sent to a pathologist for examination. The presence of multiple nodes is concerning and deserves further workup. Hope this helps. Papillary carcinoma is common and treatable. ...Read more

My dad had a nuclear bone scan. Nuclear bone scan findings: there are several focal areas of isotope accumulation in the region of the sacroiliac joints bilaterally which correspond to lesions noted on the CT pelvis consistent with bony me

My dad had a nuclear bone scan. Nuclear bone scan findings: 
       there are several focal areas of isotope accumulation in the region of the 
       sacroiliac joints bilaterally which correspond to lesions noted on the CT pelvis consistent with bony me

Possibly metastases: Nuclear bone scans usually demonstrate areas of increased bone metabolism, the bone reacting to a stimulus, such as tumor, fracture, infection, etc.Bone scan is very sensitive but not specific. Ct and MRI are cross sectional imaging that can more specifically identify the pathology and characterize the abnormalities on bone scan. ...Read more

Brain CT scan shows three calcified nodular lesions with no perilesional edema in left frontal and left occipital. Largest measuring approx 5x3mm?

Brain CT scan shows three calcified nodular lesions with no perilesional edema in left frontal and left occipital. Largest measuring approx 5x3mm?

See comments: Not sure of your precise question, but will comment on your results. The lesions could raise a question of an old parasitic infection possibly cysticercosis, and would be well to check a stool sample for ova and parasites. Plain x-rays of your thigh muscles might show similar calcifications and confirm this diagnosis. You might benefit from an opinion from a neurologist, or infectious disease. ...Read more

Focal lesion mid brain tegmentum  on the right side involving the periaqueductal region and tectal plate,t2 flair images in mid brain.
How serious is ?

Some comments: Cannot interpret the exact nature of your lesion from your description, but would certainly have an experienced neurosurgeon evaluate. Could well be a benign chronic lesion, which may have been present for years, but regardless, get this addressed and treated, so you can feel better about this. ...Read more

CAT scan came back saying multiple scattered soft tissue density foci in upper cervical subcutaneous calcification of pineal gland.  What's meaning?

Please repost: You left something out. However: You didn't just pass by a CT scan facility & decide to go in & make an impulse purchase. Your doctor ordered the CT for a reason. You haven't bothered to state the reason. The CT isn't the patient, you are. The ordering MD who knows you is ethically obligated to interpret the CT for you in the context of you as a patient, or if they can't, to find someone who can. ...Read more

MRI scan shows two small focal flair hot spots in either frontal lobes subcortically. Mild peri ventricular gliosis. Age related mild diffuse atrophy.

Probably not...: ...significant. A few small lesions can be seen in many patients without an underlying problem. If there is any concern, then a repeat MR in 4-6 months can be performed. Without any interval change, then you should not worry. However, atrophy at your age is more worrisome and not common, and your Doctor should examine you closely for any underlying cause. ...Read more

Discuss w/ provider: One of the most important parts of imaging is providing meaningful and clear explanations of results to the patient and their family. There is no need for you to suffer additional hrm from being scared. Don't wait - call for a followup visit ASAP. Meanwhile - stop trying to guess at the meaning. It takes doctors years to understand these results. You'll Best! ...Read more

Thyroid nodule: You have problem with cervical nodes and thyroid nodule. Need more information about neck nodes. Did you have biopsy of any one of those nodes? First you need ct of neck and chest for these nodes and biopsy. Also for thyroid us, thyroid scan, again fna by specialist. Your doctor and endocrinologist have to work with pathologist and surgeon if necessary. See http://doctorrajput.Com thanks. ...Read more

Meaning? 1.1 cm soft tissue density and hypermetabolic activity in deep rt parotid gland, SUV peak 3.7.

Meaning?  1.1 cm soft tissue density and hypermetabolic activity in deep rt parotid gland, SUV peak 3.7.

HYPERMETABOLIC MASS: The fact that you have this information reveals that you have had a study (or someone else has). The meaning of this test is that there is a mass that is very active metabolically--it uses a lot of energy--. This could be a hyperactive portion of the parotid gland or possibly a malignancy. It certainly needs to be followed and hopefully whoever ordered the test will follow up on it. ...Read more
