Liver Has Prominent Lateral Segment
Abdomen usg says: fatty liver, mild splenomegaly, diffuse bowel wall thickening at right illiac region. Possibility of distal iletis. Is it serious?
This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more
I had CT/Angio of neck they found minimal aortic arch calcification, mild ectasia of the proximal left vertebral artery over a focal segment.
U/s liver findings-7mm L lobe nodule.& 2.1x2 cm mixed echogenicity nodule subcapsular portion of the inferior aspect R lobe. concerning?rest liver ok.
LIVER LESION EVAL: A Liver Lesion identified on ultrasound needs to be followed closely. You need to have LABS monitered and evaluation for hepatitis. A repeat Ultrasound or potentially Abdominal MRI may be needed. Also Consult with a GI specialist, to insure that a biopsy is not warranted. ...Read more
Subcapsular and capsular arterial phase enhancement of liver. Focal capsular retraction @inferior rt hepatic tip along lateral margin. Layman's terms?
See hepatologist: Arterial enhancement means that the area is dependent of arterial blood, usually meaning some type of inflammation or malignancy. Retraction means that the capsule of the liver is indented, concerning for scarring or cancer. With a definable mass, this would be concerning and necessitate a liver biopsy or repeat scan in a few months. See a liver specialist. ...Read more
My CT scan shows few ill defined linear reticular opacities noted in the superior segment of the left lower lobe. What does it mean?
Hi i done CT they found fatty infiltration of the liver andthere is a rounded lesion of hyperdensity in the posterior segment the lobe liver 3.6x 3.2?
CT hyperdensity: There is not enough detail to render an opinion on the lesion.The 'hyperdense' descriptor is very nonspecific. It could be anything from nothing to worry about('focal sparing', or an island of normal tissue surrounded by fatty infiltration), to something more serious.Is there more detail in the report? Talk to your doc. Fatty infiltration is benign fat deposition due to multiple possibles cause ...Read more
Mild fixed perfusion deficit in the distal anterior/anteroapical wall. Mildly enlarged left ventricle. Mild global hypokinesis, with moderate hypokinesis of the inferior and apical walls. Mildly low resting left ventricular ef of 45% post test 51%?
What's the question?: This result indicates a blockage with resultant heart muscle damage (prior heart attack) likely involving an artery known as the "LAD". In this particular case the LAD is likely large with a "wrap around" to the apical inferior region. A cardiac catheterization would be recommended to visualize the coronary arteries followed by possible stenting if the area is "viable" and not scarred ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
2 reports 1 says 1.2 CM cyst right inferior liver other report says 12 mm in anterior segment of right lobe are these the same cyst/area?
Yes more than likely: 1.2 cm is 12 mm. The right lobe can be broken down into posterior (segments 6 and 7) and anterior (segments 5 and 8) sectors and inferior (segments 5 and 6) and superior (segments 7 and 8) sectors. So by the description of your scans, you have a liver cyst measuring 1.2 cm (about half an inch) in segment 6. Very common finding, usually without symptoms. Get ultrasound once a year. ...Read more
Patchy subpleural parenchymal scars in both apies on right lung middle segmental lobe and inferior lingular ligament?
Ct 4 pneumomed (ok now) also noted "minimal interlobular septal thickening @ lung apices", "thickwalled but decompressed bladder", "irregularly shaped enhancing follicle in left ovary". Translation?
IHBR dilated with a soft tissue lesion 12*10mm in hilar region involving the common hepatic duct RHD, LHD diameter 6mm, 7mm CBD not dilated. serious ?
Soft tissue lesion: this finding should be investigated further.Get a more detailed answer ›
Us results: liver is enlarged msg 19.5cm in the midclavical line. Diffusely incr. Hepatic echogenicity is noted compatible w/infiltrative disease?
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
Result for my brain MRI -asymmetric decreased attenuation in the left basal ganglia, variant dilated perivascular spaces or punctate chronic lacune. ?
MRI report: This is language used in radiology to describe what they see. Ordinarily, they cannot distinguish a small stroke (lacune) from a perivascular space. A "puntate lacune" though is very small. It is probably just the side view of a blood vessel (aka perivascular). Do you smoke? Do you have high blood pressure? Do you have diabetes mellitus? Atrial fibrillation? These are stroke risk factors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Grade 1 anterolisthesis of L5 over s1 with fatty marrow conversion at left L5 pars inter articular with bowing indicative of a healed fracture, 22yo/m?
Spondylolisthesis L5: You have described what is probably a congenital condition with a defect in the pars interarticularis. The symptoms may have become apparent after some trauma. 90% of the time people of this condition can be treated conservatively with a lumbosacral brace and analgesics. If symptoms worsen, further imaging may include MRI or ct with intrathecal contrast. Decompression and fusion may become neces. ...Read more

Hepc, cirohis, CT scan -liver shows eviden of nodular surface, hypertrophied caudate & left lobe.Normal calibre abdominal aorta. How bad is it?
You: Have evidence of cirrhosis. A gastroenterologist can give you guidance regarding how well your liver is functioning, ways to slow further liver damage, and surveillance to detect any developing liver tumors (such as hepatoma). If you don't drink and take of yourself there is every likelihood of many more years of life. ...Read more
