Linear Density At The Left Base Consistent With Small Parenchyma Like Scar
Questionable small density at the left upper lung field and linear atelectasis is superimposed on the left hilum.What? Cancer? Remainder lungs clear.
Possible: The possibility of cancer is almost always there. The risk depends on the smoking history, family history of cancer, the size of the mass, etc.. Smokers are at higher risk. Certain cancers are familial. Larger spots and those with ragged edges are more likely to be cancerous. Consultation with oncologist or lung specialist may be considered.. ...Read more
A very faint subpleural nodular density in the left lower lobe posterolaterally noted on CT Scan along with minor nodularity to posterior lung bases?
Tiny calcific density in the right upper lungfield and faint linear density in the right midlung area. Probably of no present clinical significance. ?
Calcium in lung: How was it diagnosed, by CXR, or by CT-MRI. Presence of CA, is always abnormal. Because of the numerous structures in the upper chest, x-rays may show several shadows in normally clear areas. Reasons can range from the benign (rib shadows, anatomic anomalies), to more serious, including active infections (pneumonia, TB), old scars (healed TB), malignancies, and other diseases. Either way, suspicious densities should prompt your physician to pursue additional tests, which may include additional x-rays or CT scan. ...Read more
Mri:very small area with abnormal high signal intensity on t2 fat sat is seen in the dome of the talus suggestive for subchondral edamatous contusion?
Talar dome lesion: This could indicate a possible talar dome lesion. Talar dome lesions are usually caused by an injury, such as an ankle sprain. If the cartilage does not heal properly following the injury, it softens and may break off. Sometimes a broken piece of the damaged cartilage and bone will “float” in the ankle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Should I be concerned about a 15x19 mm oval shaped enhancing mass involving the posterior superior wall of the distal fourth portion of the duodedum?
There is presence of large non-enhancing predominantly hypodense lesion(HU-80) seen involving the upper and mid pole of right kidney. it measures ~166?
What does it mean "homogenous opacity is seen in left basal zone with obliteration of left CP angle and opacity along left chest wall"?
The doctor: Is seeing a density in the left lung base and along the chest wall. ...Read more

Mass at medial end right clavicle, hypodensity with clear boarders with centeral hyperechogenicity and no vascular flow. Most likely lymph node.
My husband has some minor linear atelectasis in the left lingula with slight dependant atelectasis at the lung base also mild right hilar lymphadenop?
Needs evaluation: The presence of linear opacities with hilar adenopathy can be due to several acute or chronic conditions such as histoplasmosis, atypical mycobacterial infections, sarcoidosis, or rarely malignancy etc. Your husband should immediately see a lung specialist for a complete evaluation to determine the underlying cause, which will help determine appropriate course of treatment. ...Read more
Subcortical foci of increased signal are present suggestive of some sclerosis and marrow reactive changes in the left hip joint. There is a subcortical cyst in the acetabulum on the right hip measuring 5 mm - what does this mean?
My CT shows copd. Linear infiltrates in the superior segment of lt lower lobe associated with a 6 mm nodule and there is a 2-3 nodule no effusion.
You need follow-up: COPD is unfortunately too common and mostly from tobacco smoking, which is preventable. The infiltrate suggests infectious process such as pneumonia, which is treatable. The 6mm nodule is quite small and so not concerning at this time...But these could change/grow as in lung cancer. Thus, some repeat study in maybe 3-6-12 months interval maybe needed for surveilance. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Suspicious densities are noted in the right

A MRI showed a 4.5mm cystic focus on on T2-weighted image12 in the region of the tectum on the left. The report also states of a mild increased FLAIR signal within this region as well as within the adjacent peri-aqueductal gray matter on FLAIR images 11
And the question?: That is incomplete information though I understand WHAT is being said. You can't draw conclusions unless you tell me what your symptoms are and how they've evolved. Why the MRI of the head? Any contrast given? Other tests you've had in blood, etc.? If you'd like to visit with me please make an appointment at: www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi and use Key Code: PDXFNR as directed. Bring report or images. ...Read more
There is a medium-sized inferoseptal and a small sized apical defect worse at rest suggestive of soft tissue attenuation and reconstruction artifact.
Scan: I assume This is a nuclear cardiac stress test and if so, is consistent with scarred heart muscle possibly related to coronary artery blockages and old damage. I presume that your EKG was also abnormal. These important findings are best evaluated by a cardiologist skilled in interpreting nuclear cardiac scans, and who knows all your findings. Coronary Angiography may be recommended. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Written in the ultrasound “ small 9x5mm oval shap solid lesion seen in the upper quadrant of right breast as a fibro adenoma & 2 small cyst
Fibroadenoma follow: Sharply demarked lesions in the breast at your age are almost always benign tumors of glands and connecting tissue called fibroadenomas. There is no need for removal unless they enlarge or obscure follow-up/exam. Needle aspiration biopsy can easily confirm if worrisome. ...Read more
Ct images reveal a spiculated mixed attenuating solid mass at the superior segment of the left lower lobe lungs est. Vol of 203cc. Der are minute calc?
Probable biopsy: A spiculated mass is often worrisome for cancer. However this also could be from a prior lung infection. Your doctors may consider a needle biopsy of the mass or a pet/ct scan. It would be helpful to compare this finding with any old chest xrays or ct scans to see if this is a new mass. ...Read more
