Linear Density At The Left Base Consistent With Small Parenchyma Like Scar
Would calcium coronary scoring results be affected by having multiple tiny nodular densities within lung parenchyma or scarring .How reliable the test?
Please explain what these CT findings mean and thank you so much ahead of time. Pleural based nodule in right upper chest size-2x6mm. A slightly asymmetric biapical plueroparenchymal scarring. Also small calcific densities measuring 3.5 mm in the right l
Most likely OK: Small pleural based nodule is most likely a granuloma (left over from prior infection) but could conceivably be a small cancer. You will most likely be followed with ct, especially if you are a smoker. If there is no growth it is probably just a small granuloma and no biopsy is necessary. Biapical pleural parenchymal scarring is very common, but may also be followed. Calcific densities r likely ok. ...Read more
