I have been diagnosed with mild calyceal dilation in right kidney suggesting hydronephosis, a 4mm calculus at ureter bladder junction. Is this serious?

Probably not: A Stone in the ureter can cause back pressure in the kidney which results in dilation of the collecting system. The kidney can tolerate this for relatively short periods of time however if this continues it can damage the kidney. I would suggest you consult a urologist. ...Read more

What to do if I did scan and it says there is mild calyceal fullness/dilatation seen in the lift kidney (?

What to do if I did scan and it says there is mild calyceal fullness/dilatation seen in the lift kidney (?

Likely nothing: The calyces of the kidney fill with urine and drain down the ureter into the bladder. Sometimes they are filled with urine and sometimes they are empty. CT scans and ultrasounds see the kidney in one moment in time. Your calyces were most likely normally filled with urine. ...Read more

What does 'mild lv dilation with interior/posterior wall motion abnormality mean?

What does 'mild lv dilation with interior/posterior wall motion abnormality mean?

Heart dysfunction: Dilatation of left ventricle can commonly ve related to coronary artery disease and episodes of ischemia and infarction. The muscle inferioly and posteriorly does not contract normally due to damaged muscle. Left ventricula dilation can be secondary to the damage to the left ventricle. This ventricle pumps blood to all the organs of the body. Meidcations can sometimes strengthen heart.Contraction. ...Read more

Please explain simply what is mild concentric ventricular hypertrophy with mild left atrial dilation?

Please explain simply what is mild concentric ventricular hypertrophy with mild left atrial dilation?

Left heart large: The main pumping chamber of the heart (l ventricle) is evenly increased in size so that the pumping cavity is a bit smaller. The priming pump (l atrium) is mildly enlarged. This is very likely due to uncontrolled high BP over many years. Because it is mild I would not expect any symptoms or functional difficulty at all. Treatment is to control bp. ...Read more

29 years old, bilateral cpcs and mild renal dilation in my 19 wk ultrasound. What is my adjusted risk for trisomy 21, 13 and 18?

29 years old, bilateral cpcs and mild renal dilation in my 19 wk ultrasound. What is my adjusted risk for trisomy 21, 13 and 18?

Consult a Fetal: Maternal Medicine specialist if you're worried about the results of your Level 2 targeted fetal ultrasound. Your age & the results of your screens need to be factored in to calculate your risk. Bilateral Choroid Plexus Cysts are seen on 2nd trimester FUS's in 1-2% of healthy fetuses. They usually resorb in all fetuses. Genetic amniocentesis would give you a definitive answer. ...Read more

Hi I'm 20 weeks and 5 days pregnant I had my second scan on Monday and was told 'lt kidney demonstrates mild pelvicalyceal dilation, with AP renal pel?

Consult: Abnormal ultrasound findings are something that you should discuss with your doctor in person. In general the finding of a single anomaly can still be normal, but warrants a more complex discussion with your doctor that includes any serum genetic testing. This is not the end of the world nor anything gravely concerning, but warrant further discussion. Best of luck. ...Read more

MY MRCP report tells -pancreatict duct in head body tail region shws mild dilation+abrupt cut in head region+neck tail branches r narrowed. Duct 6mm.

Well...: I doubt that you have pancreatic cancer (your age), and I do not have films or complete history. Yet this must be looked further as Pancreatic duct stones or other processes may give these results.
See and experienced gastroenterologist, maybe the person that did the ERCP ...Read more

Both foetal kidneys show mild dilation of pelvis measuring 4-5 mm showed up in 26 week fetus ultrasound Should I be worried?

Fetal Kidneys: Would not be worried with mild dilation of fetal kidneys. This is not an uncommon findings, and usually is not significant. However, your doctor may repeat the ultrasound just to be sure. As long as your growth is fine and amniotic fluid is normal, it's not likely anything to be worried about. ...Read more

Pelvic CT scan showed mild dilation of the renal collection system bilaterally. No obstruction was seen on a retro-peritoneal u/s. Is this serious?

Pelvic CT scan showed mild dilation of the renal collection system bilaterally. No obstruction was seen on a retro-peritoneal u/s. Is this serious?

Not likely: The renal collecting systems collect the urine made by the kidneys. Urine then travels through the ureters to the bladder. If the collecting systems become dilated, it can mean there is something blocking the pathway (e.g., kidney stone, mass, scarring). There is a range of normal and even mild dilatation can be ok. Blood tests can also be used to ensure normal kidney function. ...Read more

Thick left ventricle: You have thick left ventricular muscle. In hocm or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy you may develop some obstruction to blood flow to your aorta from the ventricle. You need to know whether you have a mitral valve leak. It can be easily with beta blockers. ...Read more

Had a cardiac mri. Finding: mild lv cavity dilation, normal lv systolic function; lvef 62%.Trivial pericardial & pleural effusion?

Sounds pretty normal: Ef is normal, tiny effusions are nothing to worry about. Was valvular function normal - ie no stenosis or regurgitation?

Also, how much dilation? Was a volume given?

Would followup with a cardiologist and make sure you optimize your therapy for high blood pressure among other conditions.

The lv dilation and pericardial effusions could be followed with echocardiography. ...Read more

Urologist saw mild dilation of right kidney and ordered a CT just to be cautious. Had a cytoskopy right before, was normal, bladder was full. Howconcered?

Not to be worried: ct scan will show any blockage lets say from kidney stone which can block release of urine from kidney down ureters to bladder or if at urethra would back up in bladder or if prostate enlarged could prevent urine form getting out thus blowing up the kidney, cystocopy was normal so unlikely stone ...Read more

MRCP "Persistent mild dilation of the central intrahepatic duct. There are areas of mild narrowing & irregularity of the intrahepatic ducts & proximal common duct. No dilation of common bile duct. Gallbladder sludge is present." What causes this?

MRCP "Persistent mild dilation of the central intrahepatic duct. There are areas of mild narrowing & irregularity of the intrahepatic ducts & proximal common duct. No dilation of common bile duct. Gallbladder sludge is present." What causes this?

Nonspecific: I believe that the ductal findings are nonspecific. Sludge in the gall bladder can cause abdominal distress and indigestion. A gastroenterologist would sit down with the radiologist and review the images and decide whether more imaging studies like an MRI or liver biopsy are advisable depending upon your symptoms or lack of symptoms. ...Read more

How do you know if tropicamide to dilate pupils at eye exam caused glaucoma? Symptoms include heaviness in eyes, mild pain, blurry vision.

How do you know if tropicamide to dilate pupils at eye exam caused glaucoma? Symptoms include heaviness in eyes, mild pain, blurry vision.

Probably not: Tropicamide is a an eye medication gnerally used to dilate the pupil during an eye examination. There is a minimal risk of inducing angle closure glaucoma in patients who are predisposed to this condition. This predispostion is usually determined before the eyes are dilated. The described symptoms are consistent with the effects of tropicamide which are temporary. ...Read more
