Please expalin the difference betweeen hyperechoic & hypoechoic lesions on the liver?

Hyperechoic: Lesions are "bright" or whiter than surrounding liver. Hypoechoic lesions are darker than surrounding liver. There are long lists of what causes these and ct scans or MRI are often used to sort out questions. ...Read more

I have a hyperechoic mass in the pole of my kidney. What does this mean & what are my next steps?

I have a hyperechoic mass in the pole of my kidney. What does this mean & what are my next steps?

Next - usually CT: A hyperechoic mass may be an angiomyolipoma, renal cell cancer, or hemorrhagic cyst among others. A ct would often be indicated to differentiate further.

Angiomyolipoma is a benign growth (also known as hamartoma) but it can bleed. Renal cell cancers used to be thought to be hypoechoic (dark on ultrasound), but there have been cases of tumors enveloping fat and becoming hyperechoic (brighton us). ...Read more

Well defimed oval hyperechoic lesion measurin 12 11 mm. Dr suspect angiomyolipoma. Can it be malignant?

Well defimed oval hyperechoic lesion measurin 12 11 mm. Dr suspect angiomyolipoma. Can it be malignant?

Usually not: Angiomyolipomas of the kidney suspected on ultrasound can be quickly assessed with non contrast dedicated renal ct. If gross fat is seen on ct then it is a benign angiomyolipoma and you are done with the evaluation. ...Read more

I am a woman. Aged 33. Have a hyperechoic lesion measuring 12.4 *11.8mm noted in left renal cortex. How can this be treated?

I am a woman. Aged 33. Have a hyperechoic lesion measuring 12.4 *11.8mm noted in left renal cortex. How can this be treated?

The vast majority: Of the time, this finding represents a benign angiomyolipoma and requires no treatment. The ultrasound appearance is not diagnostic, but CT or MRI can usually make a definitive confirmation of the diagnosis due to certain unique features of the nodule on those modalities. ...Read more

I've had two ultrasounds done now and both times they have found a hyperechoic pancreas lesion measuring at 5 mm. Should I be concerned?

I've had two ultrasounds done now and both times they have found a hyperechoic pancreas lesion measuring at 5 mm. Should I be concerned?

Concerned: Yes, until the doctors checked your ultrasounds and a hyper-echoic pancreas a second time, it is OK to contact your doctor and insist on more specific information and advice.

Hope all goes well - please keep me posted. ...Read more

What is a hyperechoic lesion in liver?

What is a hyperechoic lesion in liver?

It is a: Lesion in the liver which is brighter (echogenic) than normal liver. Typically in young patients it turns out to be a benign hemangioma, which needs no treatment. Sometimes it is focal fatty infiltration, also benign. Uncommonly in your age group, it is something more serious. The US appearance is not specific, so often CT or MRI are done to confirm hemangioma. ...Read more

What is parenchyma is hyperechoic with increased attenuation of beam and is homogenous in liver?

See answer: While it is difficult to interpret a comment from the report, especially without seeing the images and the relationships and appearance of the other hepatic structures (vessels, bile ducts) this may indicate diffuse fatty infiltration – which could be metabolic or the result of drug treatment. Discuss with your clinical dr. ...Read more

What is diff betwen hypoechoic vs hyperechoic livr lesion seen in ultrasound? Can they both be either benign or malignent?

Black or white?: This is a description of the appearance of the lesion on the ultrasound as it reflects the sound waves. Hyper is more white and hypo is black. They can be both benign or malignant depending on other characteristics of the lesions and clinical context. ...Read more

What does this mean? Endometrium demonstrates a thickness of 0.7 CM and is hyperechoic. Within the cervix, there is crescentic echogenicity, 1.7 cm.

What does this mean? Endometrium demonstrates a thickness of 0.7 CM and is hyperechoic. Within the cervix, there is crescentic echogenicity, 1.7 cm.

Depends: This depends on age. A 0.7cm thick endometrial thickness is normal for women who still have their period. If in the older woman that doesn't have her menstrual flow then that is too thick. As for the other remark I would have to see it. ...Read more

I got my USG result for my abdminal and says I have a small hyperechoic lesion visible in my right ovary measuring 3X5X6mm. Is something wrong wth me?

I got my USG result for my abdminal and says I have a small hyperechoic lesion visible in my right ovary measuring 3X5X6mm. Is something wrong wth me?

Your Gyn is to guide: The doctor who order ultrasound on your ovary is the best person to guide you.
It is too small to worry about it right now. Unless it grows and gets bigger than 10-12 mm, I would not make much of anything out of it. A repeat study in 6 months will eliminate your anxiety as I suspect that it will either disappear or may not change any in size.
Good luck ...Read more

Among Hypoechoic, ISO to Hypoechoic, Hyperechoic, Isoechoic, which one gives best inference for US liver images. What is the difference between these?

Among Hypoechoic, ISO to Hypoechoic, Hyperechoic, Isoechoic, which one gives best inference for US liver images. What is the difference between these?

The echogenicity: Of a structure is related to how much it reflects the ultrasound beam and thus creates echoes for the transducer to pick up. If it is very echogenic it looks bright on the screen, and if there are no echoes (anechoic) it is black. Hypoechoic means less echogenic than adjacent tissue (therefore darker), isoechoic means the same echogenicity, and hyperechoic means more echogenic (brighter). ...Read more

What could 3 heterigeneous hyperechoic nodules in left lobe of thyroid be. Measurements are. 9, 1.5, and 1.0.?

Need further tests: Thyroid nodules can be benign or cancerous. You need to have a fine needle aspiration of the nodules to make sure that they are benign. Only about 5% of thyroid nodules are cancer but you need the aspiration to prove that yours are benign. ...Read more

Tiny hyperechoic foci without shadowing noted in lower pole of both kidneys-sinus fat/calculi. How dangerous is the situation?

Tiny hyperechoic foci without shadowing noted in lower pole of both kidneys-sinus fat/calculi. How dangerous is the situation?

Symptoms?: The ultrasound report merely states that there is something around the lower kidney that is more dense than the rest of the surrounding tissue. In all likelihood it represents fatty change or small kidney-stones. If you had symptoms that prompted this investigation you might require further investigation, if not you could possibly just do a follow up ultrasound in 3 months. ...Read more

Second transvaginal US came back with 1cm hyperechoic avascular lesion in double layer of endometrium which measure 0.8cm. Can I leave it?

Second transvaginal US came back with 1cm hyperechoic avascular lesion in double layer of endometrium which measure 0.8cm. Can I leave it?

It sounds like: It could be a polyp, sometimes a sonohysterogram is performed for better visualization. A "possible" lesion needs to be confirmed as a real lesion before any surgery. Most polyps are benign, but a small percentage could be cancerous or precancerous. They can cause irregular or heavy bleeding. Talk to your doc about your options and risks/benefits of treatment.
