Mild Asymmetric Wall Thickening Versus Underdistention
Lower Right abdominal pain-what would wall thickening of the cecum 2.8cmx4.9cm,suspicious for cecal mass. mild pericecal standing-no obstruction Mean?
Ct colonography report states diverticulosis particularly in the sigmoid with associated smooth muscle hypertrophy. What is smooth muscle hypertrophy?
Abdomen CT result. Annular constricting lesion suspected in descending colon. Extending 3 to 4 cm. Associated wall thickening.Does this mean cancer ?
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

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

Interpret CT: mild thickening of distal sigmoid & rectal wall w/o adjacent fatty stranding. Loops of mild distended sm bowel w/o clear transition zone?
Diverticulosis: and possibly prior episode of diverticulitis could present this way. So too does infected segment or inflammation. The mild dilated small bowel in the current context is not as much of concern as the condition of the colon. Best discuss these findings with your doctor to put them into a good clinical picture. Good luck ...Read more
"mild bowel wall thickening involve sigmoidcolon might reflect relative underdistention. less likely inflammation". is cancer? no real gastro symptoms
Typical scenario: Since we don't do any kind of bowel prep any more for routine CT scans, this kind of scenario is common. If the radiologist thinks the bowel looks a little too think, they will likely put in a statement like that as a hedge against potential pathology (and lawsuit). The thing is, could it be cancer? Yes, but the likelihood is low. If it was me, I would ignore it unless you develop symptoms. ...Read more

Adenomyosis: Adenomyosis is when the blood lining of the endometrium invades the muscle of the uterus. It can cause the uterus to become enlarged, boggy, and painful.

Abnormal FDG activity involving pleural thickening in Rt lower lateral lung base compatible with inflammatory VS early neoplasticism disease. Meaning?
Pleural thickening: It means that the pleural thickening is metabolically active(i.e. It is not chronic scarring, which would be inactive). The 2 main possibilities for this, as you mention, are an active inflammation, which is benign, or neoplastic disease(tumor). Speak with your doctor. If the answer is not clear based on your entire clinical picture, biopsy could be needed to determine what it is. ...Read more
MRI =Mild" thickening of heart muscle not HOCM.Tortuous descending aorta. Aberrant right subclavian artery which courses posterior to the trachea. ??
Mild thickening's OK: See my comment to your previous post regarding the other findings (tortuous aorta, subclavian artery). The mild thickening of the heart muscle is common, and not necessarily from HCM. It could be the effects of long-standing hypertension. Keeping ur BP low with a -pril or a -sartan (Enalapril, Valsartan, etc.) could even reverse the thickening of the heart. Thanks 4 ur question on HealthTap, & GL! ...Read more
