What does nonspecific, subtle subcortical left frontal lobe hypodensities without significant mass mean on ct scan impression?

What does nonspecific, subtle subcortical left frontal lobe hypodensities without significant mass mean on ct scan impression?

Nothing w/o symptoms: The impression of a CT scan means nothing unless there are symptoms or signs that warrant the scan to begin with. Why was the CT scan ordered? What symptoms did you have? The impression says that there are less dense spots in the left front part of the brain, but no mass, no tumor. The cause (& significance) of the spots is unknown. Talk to the doctor who ordered the test or use HealthTap Prime. ...Read more

Brain CT scan shows three calcified nodular lesions with no perilesional edema in left frontal and left occipital. Largest measuring approx 5x3mm?

Brain CT scan shows three calcified nodular lesions with no perilesional edema in left frontal and left occipital. Largest measuring approx 5x3mm?

See comments: Not sure of your precise question, but will comment on your results. The lesions could raise a question of an old parasitic infection possibly cysticercosis, and would be well to check a stool sample for ova and parasites. Plain x-rays of your thigh muscles might show similar calcifications and confirm this diagnosis. You might benefit from an opinion from a neurologist, or infectious disease. ...Read more

Subcentimeter hypodense nodule on left thyroid lobe with coarse focus of calcification---subcentimeter left thyroid nodule.Non-specific in nature.

Thyroid nodules: Most nodules less than 1 cm are not concerning and can be monitored with periodic ultrasounds. Some features such as calcification may heighten concern. Much more information is necessary in your situation. Is there family history of thyroid cancer, personal history of hyper or hypothyroidism, and radiation exposure? You need to discuss this with an endocrinologist and arrange a treatment plan. ...Read more

Radiologist report says bilateral gliosis posterior frontal lobe. Where is the posterior frontal lobe located and can it cause my nocturnal seizures. ?

The frontal lobes: Occupy about the front half of the top part of the brain, called the cerebrum. The posterior area would be towards the back - just in front and above the ear - see attached image - the back part of the pink area. Gliosis is like scar tissue in the brain, and could cause seizures. Please discuss this with your neurologist and correlate with eeg and other test results. ...Read more

What does "hypo dense area of right hepatic lobe" and "low density area of right hepatic lobe" mean on CT results?

The description: is very nonspecific. Almost every focal liver abnormality, from benign to malignant, will be "hypodense" on CT scan. Hypodense means that it is less dense or less attenuating than normal liver, and looks darker than normal liver on the scan. Other CT features determine the level of suspicion. Most of these incidental findings turn out to be benign, but you need to discuss it with your doctor. ...Read more

Ultrasound: 2.6cm isoechoic mass in right hepatic lobe.14mm hyperechoic nodule in right anterior lobe. What does it mean?

Further Tests: Could be anything from nothing to metastatic lesions. Further evaluation could include ct and needle biopsy. Is there any history of a prior cancer? Abnormal liver enzymes? Alcohol abuse? Hepatitis? All could have a bearing on your further work-up. Good luck. ...Read more

Both of my thyroid lobes demonstrate heterogeneous echotexture without focal nodule. right lobe measures L: 3.37 cm, left lobe measures L: 3.33 cm?

Both of my thyroid lobes demonstrate heterogeneous echotexture without focal nodule. right lobe measures L: 3.37 cm, left lobe measures L: 3.33 cm?

Thyroid: A heterogeneous, normal sized thyroid may not mean much, or it could indicate one of a number of inflammatory/infiltrative processes i.e. thyroiditis. Sometimes symptoms may not be noticed. The thyroid US findings must be interpreted in conjunction with lab values/thyroid function tests, symptoms, and clinical findings to assess the significance, so best bet is to discuss with your doc. ...Read more

What's a 14mm noncalcified left upper lobe parenchymal pulmonary mass adjacent atelectasis.Left upper lobe bronchus/hillar peribronchial cuffing/thick?

Mgt PHI: The imaging may be uploaded to an inbox consultation. From your description I would suggest a follow up imaging study with an evaluation with additional information. Have you smoked? Is there a family history of cancer? Have you been tested for any infections? The mass is probably impinging on the airway and causing areas of collapse, called atelectasis. This area is prone to secondary infection ...Read more

A CT finding of a, stellate 1.6 x 1.1 CM subpleural right anterior segment upper lobe nodule is present. Additional 2mm middle lobe nodule is cancer?

Could Be: The right upper lobe nodule sounds most suspicious and may require some sort of biopsy to be sure. Comparison with any older imaging studies might add more information. The 2mm nodule is too small to assess and would likely be put under surveillance. Hope things work out for the best. ...Read more
