Man, u need to relax: There is no way one can determine from fetal US pictures if the baby does or doesn't resemble them. The unborn baby is still developing and change their appearance, including facial features right upto and AFTER their birth. Try to appreciate the beauty of human development inside the womb and the miraculous process of birth. There are better ways to handle doubts afterwards. Be supportive now. ...Read more

Nothing u can do: Stretch marks are tears in the skin cause by weight gain. They can be covered up, but not improved by creams and lotions. The only possibly effective therapy is cosmetic plastic surgery, but that's a big step for a non-health and non-life threatening problem. ...Read more

What is t2 hyperintense r/lower pole renal lesion demonstrates hyperintensity on non fatsaturated t1 image. Post contrast vascular phenomenon MRI Scan?

Appearance descripti: These words (presumably from a radiology report) describe what the MRI looks like (hyperintensity — very bright) & the location (lower part of the [renal] kidney) & the way the images were obtained (T2 weighting & fat-saturation T1 & dye [contrast]). All this means nothing without symptoms. For a doctor to help you, he/she needs to know what the MRI was trying to diagnose. W/o symptoms, means noth ...Read more

In an MRI of the spinal cord, what can a dark spot surrounded by a white ring I indicate? It was a SAG STIR image done without contrast.

Likely normal cord: A STIR sequence is to evaluate edema or fluid.

Definitely your review radiology report with your physician and the radiologist for answers. ...Read more

I had 2 chest x rays done 2 different times with portable mechine I seen the image but did not see the ribs just lungs is that possible.

The ribs: Should always be seen on a properly performed chest X-ray, but portable chest X-rays are notorious for having less than optimal technique, so if the X-ray energy is too high("over penetration"), they may be "burned out" on the image and difficult to visualize. ...Read more

When is the contrast needed in a head mri? If I prefer to skip it, will this be a good enough image to rule out brain legions for balance issues?

CT w contrast "findings" says known pulmonary emboli.  "Impression" says no pulmonary emboli and was sent home. The pics weren't great quality. Clot?

Could be typo?: Sounds like it should say "no" pulmonary emboli if you were sent home without treatment. Normally you would be treated for an embolus and then sent home. That is why I think report has a spelling error, for lack of a better term ...Read more

Why do some nipples/areolas look different (larger, darker) after breast augmentation? Before and after pictures often show a significant enhancement in size of nipples after breast implants. Is this an unpredictable result, or is it related to a choice

Why do some nipples/areolas look different (larger, darker) after breast augmentation? Before and after pictures often show a significant enhancement in size of nipples after breast implants.  Is this an unpredictable result, or is it related to a choice

Skin stretch: The implant adds volume to breast, so the skin has to stretch to accommodate the implant. The areola also stretches as the skin stretches, so they sometimes look larger. The pressure of the implant also helps a nipple that inverts to stay everted. ...Read more
