Mri (Definition)

Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more

What CT Scan conclusion means? "three arterialized hepatic lesions showing washout on portal venous phase imaging upon background nodular cirrhosis"

Findings. Sx? Biopsy: 1st, the basic problem is nodular cirrhosis - there are signs of liver damage (from what cause, only a doc who knows your history can tell). There are 3 lesions- or nodules- in the liver, fed by an artery, which takes up the dye that was injected at the time of CT scan. The dye washes out, so that's encouraging, but whatever the nodules are, you'll need a biopsy to figure out degree of livr damage ...Read more

Liver cyst on CT scan need biopsy?

Liver cyst on CT scan need biopsy?

Almost certainly not: Provided it is a 'simple cyst' which is a fluid filled sac. Sometimes if there is debris or septations as cyst may be aspirated. If you are asymptomatic and the lesion is a simple cyst, it's best left alone. ...Read more

No contrast CT showed ill defined hypodense area on hepatic lobe. Ordered new CT w contrast w liver mass protocol not hemangioma protocol concerning?

No contrast CT showed ill defined hypodense area on hepatic lobe. Ordered new CT w contrast w liver mass protocol not hemangioma protocol concerning?

Get iv contrast CT: There are many reasons to have a liver mass, more often than not, they are benign, but clearly depending on past medical history, It is difficult without contrast to differentiate these lesions, there are various ways to give intravenous contrast. A hemangioma protocol is also known as a triphasic study, allows one to look at three phases of liver perfusion but more complex to do. ...Read more

3mm hypodense liver lesion in caudate lobe & two 3mm hypodense pancreatic head lesions on CT in setting of carcinoid workup. Can these be tumors?

May or may not be: It takes time and follow up CT scans to see if these tumors are growing in size. if they are not tumors(cancer) it will remain unchanged in size over a period of 3-6 months. A biopsy may be required to confirm it in case these lesions are increasing in size(growing bigger). They are too small to do a biopsy now, need to be at least 1Cm or bigger. ...Read more

In my recent ct results. 1.6cm renal adenoma(in previous ct it was adrenal adenoma)thickening of right adrenal and hepatic steatosis. prognosis?

In my recent ct results. 1.6cm renal adenoma(in previous ct it was adrenal adenoma)thickening of right adrenal and hepatic steatosis.  prognosis?

?Typo: It sounds like there might be a typographical error in the report. An adrenal adenoma(which is benign) does not go away or turn into a renal adenoma. Moreover, a renal adenoma cannot be diagnosed by CT, it would require a biopsy to establish that. Have your doctor review the report for accuracy. ...Read more

Mri shows t2 hyperintensity in the right hepatic lobe measuring 2.1 cm. Hepatic ultrasound strongly advised. Is this a lesion, mass, malignant?

Mri shows t2 hyperintensity in the right hepatic lobe measuring 2.1 cm.  Hepatic ultrasound strongly advised.   Is this a lesion, mass, malignant?

Get US: Get the ultrasound to further characterize the lesion. Likely benign but doppler ultrasound will further determine features that define etiology especially if solid or cystic, vascular (blood vessel) or not vascular if necessary a biopsy will provide definitive answer if it is not benign vascular lesion on us. ...Read more

Can CT w/contrast reliably characterize small (<5mm) hepatic cysts?

Cyst fluid filled: Cysts are fluid filed, typically benign. Solid could be benign (not cancerous) or not. Small are typically benign. Ct may not be able to differentiate small solid abnormalities. Plan depend on other factors-may be monitor over time for stability. Cysts may not get followed. ...Read more

Ultrasound show mild cervical lymphadenopathy,small hypoechoic nodule, parathyroid adenoma and or lymphadenopathy. Help..

Possible: Reason for cervical ultrasound is palpable nodule in mid neck. mild lymphadenopathy rarely of concern and question of parathyroid adenoma is usually just adjacent to upper or lower pole of thyroid. Essential to get throid scan to see if cold or functional nodule present. If cold nodule seen and on follow up it enlarges, then resection needed at which time nodes defined. ...Read more

CT Brain shows mass prepontine cistern CPA meningioma. Symptoms consistent with diagnosis. MRI contrast show no lesion. Symptoms persist! Now what?

CT Brain shows mass prepontine cistern CPA meningioma. Symptoms consistent with diagnosis. MRI contrast show no lesion. Symptoms persist! Now what?

Very strange: Not certain what to make of the disparity between the CT scan and the MRI. In some cases, a lesion is so small that it is missed by the artifact created by the thickness of the MRI slices. I would ask your doctor if an MRI of the brainstem with "thin slices" might be reasonable to confirm/refute the CT--with and without contrast. Take care and stay healthy! ...Read more
