Mean Ultrasound Result
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Hi. What do you mean by an ultrasound result stating that the liver exhibits coarsened parenchymal echopattern and a smooth external outline? Thank you
Benign liver disease: This description of echotexture describes the relative level of echogenicity (ability to bounce an echo wave) of the liver. Assessment of liver echogenicity is of value for assessing moderate to pronounced fatty infiltration but is not reliable for diagnosing fibrosis. Smooth external outline means there is not cirrhosis. See your MD for additional testing and treatment for fatty liver ...Read more

What do these ultrasound results mean? Hepatic contour smooth. Focal right 1.1 CM echogenicity is noted. Hepatopetal main portal venous flow is noted.
Nothing bad: Smooth hepatic contour means no signs of cirrhosis or mass. Echogenicity is sometimes from a vessel on end or a small hemangioma. These are not cancerous or anything to worry about. Hepatopedal means the blood flow to the liver is in the correct direction. In some diseases the flow is reversed or there is loss of flow so this is why they noted the flow direction. ...Read more

Would a hysterectomy be wise with an ultrasound result (premenopausal) complicated hypoechoic cyst on ovary and endometrial stripe of 12.9 mm?
Probably unwise but: A careful medical history and evaluation of your signs and symptoms by a Gyn (including a better description of the size, vascular pattern, blood flow, Doppler characteristics of the ovarian cyst...) would seem wiser. The 12.9 mm findings of your "premenopausal"endometrial lining would also need to be correlated with the day of your menstrual cycle.It too may be normal and need only a reevaluation ...Read more

Would normal liver ultrasound result and fibroscan result of 5.5 kpa/CAP 227, be enough to exclude liver fibrosis? Mild raised ggt. All other normal
Mild or no fibrosis: First of all, using FibroScan® to obtain a reliable liver stiffness measurement may require 10 or more valid measurements, according to the manufacturer's recommendations. The range of kPa values for normal and patients with fibrosis do overlap, but a value of 5.5 is low enough to exclude the need for biopsy as no or mild fibrosis. It does not rule out liver disease. Repeat study in a year ...Read more
