Multiple calcified densities at pelvis could represent phleboliths versus distal uretral lithiasis?
Could an abdominal/pelvic CT scan without contrast (ordered for ureteral stones) detect ovarian cancer also?
MAYBE: Although a contrast-enhanced ct--or, better still, a pelvic ultrasound--are preferred methods for visualizing the ovaries, a non-contact ct would likely show nonspecific irregularities of the ovaries. Bottom line: pelvic ultrasound is the best choice for visualizing ovaries. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Treatment for multiple calcified densities at pelvis could represent phleboliths versus distal uretral lithiasis?
Treatment different: Phleboliths are calcified small veins that are not usually clinically important. There usually is no treatment unless associated with hemangiomas, usually in children. Calculus or stone in ureter is referred to ureterolithiasis. This can cause pain and obstruction to the ureter. The stone either passes on its own, or sometimes has instrumentation by urologist. ...Read more

Possibly: The best gallbladder test is an ultrasound of the abdomen, and if there is concern for a blockage, a HIDA scan (pronounced hide-a) may be ordered. This HIDA scan will also show if the gallbladder is functioning normally. If there is abnormal function one can have symptoms even if no gallstones are present. CT can miss most of this, so its not ordered as a first test if gallbladder a concern. ...Read more

Subtle hyperechoic foci in both kidneys, probably renal calculi. Left renal cyst measured 17mm. There is no hydronephrosis or other masses. What does this kidney ultrasound mean?
no cancer: Renal cysts are very common and nothing to worry about. The subtle hyperechoic foci probably represent tiny kidney stones which may grow over time. No hydronephrosis means no evidence of something obstructing the flow of urine to your bladder. No masses means just that. Please see your doctor to review this report as well as current laboratory tests of your kidney function. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
