My grandson has what appears to be frank blood in his urine 3 day old  newborn?

Blood??: It would certainly be unusual for any newborn to have bloody urine but there are some events where this appears to be the case. The crystals formed by concentrated urine can form a rust colored stain in a diaper. Many interpret this to be blood, but a simple test can show it's not.True blood is commonly seen for a day or so after a circumcision.Contact the kids doc & see what s/he suggests you do. ...Read more

How long after passing (a 10/10 pain ambulance kinda) kidney stone. Can intermittent microscopic haematuria last for? It's day 3. No frank blood

How long after passing (a 10/10 pain ambulance kinda) kidney stone. Can intermittent microscopic haematuria last for? It's day 3. No frank blood

I would allow: the "healing" of the tube( ureter) which was "scraped" as the stone descended into your bladder...A week to ten days is not unusual..after that microscopic hematuria should be evaluated!
Hope this is helpful

With high shoes: If you wear thick-soled shoes, you might get away with it. But most people measure height from your bare or sock-covered feet . . . And the half-inch difference would be revealed. Frank zane can still be your idol -- but why not simply be yourself? Everybody else is taken already. ...Read more

Is there a difference between "no frank aneurysm formation is appreciated." and a "normal study." when written on brain mra reports?If yes what.....?

Is there a  difference between "no frank aneurysm formation is appreciated." and a "normal study." when written on brain mra reports?If yes what.....?

Symantics: Your physician may have specifically asked the question "is there an aneurysm?" the correct response of the radiologist is to answer the question directly, which is what is meant by "no frank aneurysm..." if that question wasn't specifically asked, the radiologist would likely conclude in his impression that the study is normal. Mra would not likely see an aneurysm smaller than 5mm. ...Read more

What does "no frank aneurysm formation is appreciated." on mri/mra brain without/with contrast report means? What does above word "frank" mean?

MRI reports: I prefer that given there is no context to this type of question that you get your results from your physician who ordered the test. That is how medicine works.
