My ultrasonography report say : diffusely increased parenchymal echogenicity of the liver of homogenous texture(bright liver) correlation liver functn?
Liver US result: This means that the ordering physician has to review the blood tests (liver enzyme tests) to interpret the meaning of the ultrasound findings. There is no single cause of increased echogenicity of the liver, so it's not safe for you to guess at a diagnosis online. ...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

My ultrasound showed " mildly echogenic liver throughout, consistent with diffuse fatty changes. No focal lesions noted." Is my liver enlarged?
Not necessarily: You provided part of the radiologic findings, but from the particular highlighted statements , there is no statement or finding that suggests an enlarged liver. Usually the term "enlarged" or hepatomagly will be included. Just know you can have changes consistent with fatty liver without an enlarged liver. Best of luck. ...Read more

Ct angiogram shows non calcified opacity on middle lobe 4mm. Appearance of benign intrapulmonary lymph node on lung with no pleural abnormalites.
Opacity: The question to your doctor should be - is this an incidental pulmonary nodule or something more concerning. If the ct angio was done for something completely unrelated, and it was a true incidental finding, some guidelines say that under a certain size (4mm) for low risk patients (no smoking, etc), then no follow up is needed. Otherwise a biopsy or interval imaging followup is appropriate. ...Read more

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
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
