My ultrasonography report say : diffusely increased parenchymal echogenicity of the liver of homogenous texture(bright liver) correlation liver functn?

Which scan would be ideal to exam the spleen and liver. A CT scan, spleen and liver scan(nuclear), or sonogram?

Depends for what: Ct is probably the best out of the ones you listed because it gives high spacial resolution and contrast. Mri would give even better contrast but this is likely not necessary. Us will show the size of each organ and any large lesions; it does not have associated radiation like ct or nuclear med scan. Nuc med scans typically used for specific purpose only, not general evaluation. ...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

What CT Scan conclusion means? "three arterialized hepatic lesions showing washout on portal venous phase imaging upon background nodular cirrhosis"

Findings. Sx? Biopsy: 1st, the basic problem is nodular cirrhosis - there are signs of liver damage (from what cause, only a doc who knows your history can tell). There are 3 lesions- or nodules- in the liver, fed by an artery, which takes up the dye that was injected at the time of CT scan. The dye washes out, so that's encouraging, but whatever the nodules are, you'll need a biopsy to figure out degree of livr damage ...Read more

Ultrsound report reads liver parenchyma  is course echogenic  and difficult to penetrate  suggesting  diffuse fatty infiltration  no gross abnormality?
