Mild Bilateral Renal Cortical Thinning
That describes: normal features of the kidney. The echogenicity is the "brightness" on US, and the cortical thickness is the width of the renal tissue. ...Read more
MRI scan shows two small focal flair hot spots in either frontal lobes subcortically. Mild peri ventricular gliosis. Age related mild diffuse atrophy.
Probably not...: ...significant. A few small lesions can be seen in many patients without an underlying problem. If there is any concern, then a repeat MR in 4-6 months can be performed. Without any interval change, then you should not worry. However, atrophy at your age is more worrisome and not common, and your Doctor should examine you closely for any underlying cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

ECHO report....: Echo report consistant with possible embolic stroke. Ekg would be helpful. Mom may need coumadin, (warfarin) but in the early stages of the stroke, heparin. There is a large risk of bleeding, so that is why they need to monitor her carefully. No veggitation on the valves, so no sbe. She might have thrown a clot. No evidence of paradoxical emboli either. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Apparently, the condition of your right kidney has been chronic, most likely, inborn. From what you described, this kidney may be still salvageable by surgery – either open or laparoscopy with or without robotic assistance. I'm sure, before the procedure, a renal nuclear scan can be done to define the residual function of right kidney. For more detail, ask and talk with your doctor. Best wish. ...Read more

On the other hand, the report may be a slight "normal" variation with no clinical significance at all. So, ask Doc for logical interpretation and follow-up before jumping ...Read more
Slight prominence of cerebral gyri & sulci noted. May represent mild atrophy. Age 45. Is that normal?
"Normal"?: I assume you're reading from a brain CT or MRI report. You didn't just wander into an imaging center & make an impulse purchase. Right? Your Dr ordered the scan for a reason. The scan isn't the patient, YOU are. The ordering Dr who knows you is obligated to interpret the scan as "normal" or not IN YOUR CASE, as part of your overall clinical picture; or, if (s)he can't, to find someone who can. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Multiple kidney cyst: The vast majority of renal cysts and benign simple cysts which are a symptomatic and causes no problems. It is not the same as polycystic kidney disease, where many cysts on both kidneys could lead to kidney failure. An ultrasound can determine if these are simple vs complex cysts, the latter could be worrisome. I suspect the kind you have could simply be followed over time; urologist will guide. ...Read more
Likely inflammation: Increased echogenicity of a tissue, usually indicates inflammation. It does not indicate why its there but its likely there. Given that the echogenicity is bilateral, tumors are not likely. The most common cause of such inflammation is a urinary tract infection. Consult your PCP for consideration of a Urology referral if you have other symptoms that are problematic. ...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
