In the 28w scan when they didnt get a clear shot of her spine the report said questionable sacrococcygeal open neural tube defect?
Get another scan: Scan quality varies with the equipment used and the experience of the tech.Some physicians spend most of their work day doing high resolution scans that are the most specific for determining what is going on.I would check with the OB and review the scan.See if a better scan is available or what else they can do to confirm what is going on. ...Read more
I have been diagnosed as having haemangioma but the report says it's not clearly identified (in the T2 weighted images of the MRI scan).Is it cancer?
Not cancer: Hemangioma is not a cancer. It is a benign mass and relatively common. Small hemangiomas cause no symptoms and require no treatment. If the definite diagnosis has already been made, whether or not the hemangioma is clearly identified on a particular MRI sequence probably doesn't matter. Some physicians will do follow up imaging in 6-12 months, ultrasound is easiest for this purpose. ...Read more

CT-scan report of 2 noncalcified nodules in the upper lobe of my right lung. Should I still be cleared to have arthroscopic knee surgery next wk?
Probably : These are chronic, and shouldn't cause cancellation of your knee surgery. They do need to be followed, or compared to old X-rays if available to ensure stability. May also need a ct scan at some point. Ask your primary care to follow up with this and recommend a course of action after your knee is fixed. Hope this helps! And good luck with the operation! ...Read more
Had CT scan for sinus/ear.Ent said it's clear.I looked at report it said I have a protuberant cavernous carotid artery covered by bone.What that mean?
Large vessel: The carotid arteries travel through the cavernous sinus which is a venous drainage system covered in part by bone. I think that they are pointing out that the cavernous carotid artery is confined in bone. If the artery breaks through the bone, it is said to be dehiscent--this can lead to big nose bleeds. ...Read more

In certain countries: The Pre-natal Diagnostic Techniques Act (PNDT) of 2002 in your native country of India prohibits ultrasound physicians from determining the gender of your infant, in an attempt to reduce female feticide. Although it is possible that your physician saw the gender of your baby during scanning, it is unlikely that a picture of the sex organs was saved. Be happy with your baby regardless of gender. ...Read more

Nuchal thickness is the U/S appearance of neck tissue in the first 3 months of a pregnancy. Of 56,000 pts, the neck in females is about 10% thinner. No one knows why.
The measurement is used to exclude Down's, not for sexing. Most reliable is to wait until you can see a penis later in the pregnancy. ...Read more
Hi, I had a PET scan Tuesday, got report today. "9MM multilobulated modular density, size stable. ?
I want to have an upcoming PET scan compared to the one 3 months earlier. Do I request a comparative report or a comparative study? What exactly?
I don't: know any facility that would perform a PET scan without a physician's order, so you probably don't need to worry about how to word the request. If you already have the order and want to make sure the facility has the proper information, when you call to schedule the test, tell them that you had a prior PET scan(when and where) and that this is a follow up study. ...Read more

Takes up tracer: Pet scans work by imaging a tracer that is a sugar analogue. Since tissue/cells that are more "metabolically active" take up more glucose tracer, we refer to that as "hypermetabolic". Diagnostically, this can mean a number of things and depends on the context. Inflammatory cells and malignant cells (cancer) are typically hypermetabolic. One would have to look at the context and medical history. ...Read more
