Hyperenhancing Foci On Liver Wash Out During Venus Phase
I have some lesions on my sclerotic lesions involving the t10, t12, L2 and L4 vertebral bodies, they are 8 mm what does this pet scan mean?
PET: Do you have any history of cancer? Did the lesions have any FDG uptake on pet? Lesions that size may be below the resolution of pet imaging. It is hard to know without having your history and seeing the images. Fdg is a nonspecific tracer and can be taken up in tumor, infection, and inflammation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

New spot found on liver thru ct.Early bt show increase liver enzymes.Us show fullness kidney & cyst on gallbladder.What does this mean?
Hard to say: Have you had a colonoscopy? It is hard to say what the spot on your liver is without looking at your films... This could be a simple cyst, but if it is new, it could be a colon cancer (or other kind of tumor). You need a proper exam, including a colonoscopy if you haven't had one yet. If that is negative, it may require a biopsy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Q. 1 of 2. Renogran, left kidney. Parenchymal tracer uptake is reduced with negligible wash out. What does it mean?
If I understand the : Question correctly, the left kidney renogram shows decreased uptake of tracer, which means decreased kidney function. The negligible wash out means little urine production, or possibly a blockage of the upper ureter. Please discuss with your doctor, as this appearance needs to be correlated with your medical condition and the reason your doctor ordered the test. ...Read more

U/s of left ovary was 23x15x29mm at 6wks pregnant.2mos postpartum it's 40x17x18mm with multiple bilateral follicles.No suspisous lesions or vascularity.How can it change in shape/size?
They do: Ovaries constantly change their size. Every month the ovary has a cyst grow (follicle) where the egg matures. The follicle grows from 5mm to 15-30 mm at time of ovulation, then the egg is released and the cyst size goes down. The ovay is very dynamic, making eggs, recruiting follicles for future cycles. What u described is quite normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

There are a: number of causes of white matter lesions, impossible to make a determination based solely on the fact that they are there. Your doctor needs to correlate the size/distribution/number of lesions in the context of your clinical picture. Various possibilities include demyelinating processes(e.g. MS), vasculitides, and inflammatory/infectious processes(e.g. Lyme disease). ...Read more

So, it may be just stone and leave it alone. But, if indeed highly suspicious for something unusual, follow the instructions of your doctor. Otherwise, don't worry for now. ...Read more
Does focal nodular hyperplasia happen in a 6 month period?Prev MRI shows nothing on the liver, recent MRI shows 3 lesions on the liver.Past kidney ca
Actually it can: Fnh is actually a curious event that begins with something we don't understand in the central blood vessel of the lesion, no matter how big or small. I'd not be surprised. If the radiologist is confident, then i'd urge you to go about your life and not worry about kidney cancer having recurred here. ...Read more

CT hyperdensity: There is not enough detail to render an opinion on the lesion.The 'hyperdense' descriptor is very nonspecific.

Talk to your doc. Fatty infiltration is benign fat deposition due to multiple possibles cause ...Read more

After my USG it was found that my liver size is 15.7 Cms long axis at MCL. Parenchymal echogenecigy is increased and also deceted 5.3 mm echogenic foc?
Need further testing: The liver size is normal. Increased echotexture may be seen with a wide range of liver diseases. However, most commonly it is secondary to fatty infiltration. While often this is incidental and of no consequence, it may lead to diminished liver function. The echogenic foci may reflect the underlying liver disease, or an incidental calcium deposit due to a prior event such as infection, injury, etc ...Read more
Is hyperintensity on t1 w/ microadenoma MRI (untreated as of yet w/meds) normal to find? Will cabergoline help clear up?Does it always mean apoplexy?
When MRI show multiple foci of increased t2 weighted flair signal intensity in the deep white matter tracts, is nortriptyline 10mg the best medicine?
Unclear: The findings you describe are radiological and generally don't represent active brain pathology. Infrequently they may associated with inflammatory processes or small vessel vascular disease. I would discuss it with a neurologist. Radiological findings are not usually treated unless there is a clear disease process associated with them. ...Read more
