Mild Prominence Of The Hila
Radiology.What is a small focal of cortical atrophy in the mid left cerebellar hemisphere peripherally with mild widening of the adjacent sulci?
Mild prominence of cortical sulci at the top of the calvarium reflecting minor involutional change.MR brain without constrast otherwise unremarkable.
Focal densities: A "density" is a very generic term. There are normal and abnormal densities in the breast. Was this reported on a screening mammo, and were additional views recommended? If so, it is likely that they are potential abnormalities that need additional views for clarification . The majority of these turn out to be nothing, but you need to have the extra views to be sure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My chest X-ray came back and says mild accentuation of the central bronchovascular markings with evidence of cephalization or edema......Translation?
What is the meaning of my xray result. Lordotic view shows minimal hazy infiltrates in the left apex. Consider minimal PTB of undetermined activity.?
Calcification of a lesion in the left parietal lobe along the falx no symptoms except occasional focal fit?
Probably from pork: Cysticercosis is an infection by the pork tapeworm (Taenia solium). Infected people may have no symptoms for years, then if a cyst of the tapeworm forms in the brain, it is one of the most common causes of seizures. In some parts of the world up to 1/4 of the people have cysticercosis. Avoid eating pork to prevent more cysts from forming in your body. The best diet for humans is eating plants. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unimportant usually: Radiologist code intended to indicate slight excess fluid in the lower part of the lung field (posterior if lying down) due to the influence of mild excess volume in the blood vessels and effect of gravity and not typical of other causes. Description implies 2 issues- > usual blood vessel volume and cause as gravity and positioning. Danger is if this is being misinterpreted by the radiologist. ...Read more
What is this found on ct abdomen? Coarse parenchymal calcification along the falciform ligament anteriorly at the margin of the liver
Mri: mild opacification of the inferior left maxillary & right sphenoid sinuses. A mild opacification is seen in the inferior right mastoid air cells?
If no symptoms....: Probably nothing to worry about. Many patients have some mucosal thickening or a small amount of fluid in 1 or more of the sinuses or mastoid air cells. However, if there is pressure, pain or tenderness over the sinuses or around/behind an ear, a fever or foul smelling, bloody or purulent nasal secretions, a sinus infection or mastoiditis is a concern. Please see your doctor. ...Read more
MRI states grade 2 degenerative changes of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus with moderate amount of joint effusion. Whats the best treatment?
Weight bearing Xrays: Weight bearing Xrays become important in a situation like you describe. Such images allow your physician to see your knee as a worst case scenario and determine if you have any significant component of underlying arthritis or loss of cartilage in the medial compartment. Your orthopaedic surgeon also needs to help determine if the meniscal irregularity is your actual pain generator. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a Mucous Retention Cyst in the inferior aspect of the left max sinus cause unilateral ptosis? CT also shows thickening of several ethmoid air cell
No: No, very unlikely. Mucous retention cysts in the sinuses are very common. The ethmoid thickening is also unlikely to cause the issue. I would look for another reason for the ptosis. ...Read more
RCA or LCX: In 80% of people, the mid-inferior wall is supplied by the right coronary artery. In 10%, it's supplied by the left circumflex and in 10% there are contributions from both arteries. A focal abnormality in that location in a 60 yo man is statistically likely to be due to blockage in 1 or both of those arteries. The area is likely to be scarred or hibernating. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The frontal sinuses are well-developed. There is mild mucosal thickening involving the inferior aspect of the bilateral frontal sinuses.
What's the question?: You have given us a statement, not a question. I assume you want to know what the radiological diagnosis means. In my experience, when a radiologist states mild mucosal thickening in any sinus, it is probably not of much clinical significance. Are you symptomatic, are other sinuses involved, do you have headaches, and finally are you ill? We need to know these things to help you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ct scan for dizziness says slight prominence of the cortical sulci, cerebellar folia noted, mild cerebellar changes, normal size & config of ventricu?
Cortical Sulci: The description are likely just aging changes in the brain, nothing alarming at his point. ...Read more
SPECT of the spine shows moderate increased uptake in the anterior aspect of +/- L3 and in the thoracic
vertebrae. What does this mean?
It means that: those areas of the bone have more metabolic activity than adjacent normal bone. It has to be interpreted in the context of the distribution of activity, your clinical history, and possibly other imaging studies, because based on limited nonspecific info, it could mean anything from trauma to arthritis to metastatic disease. Talk to your doc about the results. ...Read more
2 cortical areas of abn intensity. Mild dilation of the left sup front sulcus. White patchy areas of hyperintense signal involving PPWM. What mean?
Abnormal chest X-Ray: This may be pneumonia, but it would be best if your physician sat down with the radiologist and reviewed the xray. Your physician would describe your symptoms and physical findings and the radiologist would state his opinion and suggest any further studies deemed advisable. Referral to a specialist may also be suggested. ...Read more
Study: I am a proponent of following up with the doctor who ordered your study to get an interpretation. My reasoning is one, they know why it was ordered, they know your clinical story and two they both have access to the radiologist who read it to discuss it and that little thing at the bottom of the report which says clinical impression. ...Read more
What could this be (from radiology report)-"on lateral a metallic linear density seen overlying the lower hila which is not seen on the frontal view."?
Foreign object: This sounds like a metallic object was seen on one of the two X-ray pictures that was taken. When a finding like this is not seen on both X-ray views, it is usually an artifact and NOT something inside of you. The radiologist or ordering physician will re-order the car y if there is a concern that something is wrong ...Read more
Site of healing: Here in kansas city, many (probably most) of us have little calcified granulomas from where we met and walled off histoplasmosis. Tb can do the same thing. It's little cause for concern; rarely these calcium nuggets get sharp edges and can scrape the surrounding structures. ...Read more
Hard to say: Need more information. Likely old granulomatous infection ...Read more
What is a normal size [mm] lymph nodes in the mediastinum bilateral hilum? I have the sizes of mine, but not sure how large mine are in comparison.
Size not important: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My x ray report shows prominent hila and broncho vascular marking. i have dry cough from last 3 week . age 31 non smoker. coughing more in AC. ?
X-ray quality issue: Prominent hila and bronchovascular markings are often a sign of pulmonary edema, but this would be rare in an otherwise healthy young male. A low quality x-ray acquired front to back (AP) not back to front (PA) can artifactually accentuate some of the mediastinal finding. Further exam with your PCP will likely include pulmonary function tests (PFTs) and to check for signs of asthma. ...Read more
My x ray report showing both hila prominent and broncho vascular marking prominent and i am suffering from fever also from 5 days IS anything serious ?
Monitoring Centers: The lymphatic system absorbs and carries things too big to go into the arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. The lymph nodes "taste" the lymph to see if anything bad is there like bacteria, viruses, cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. ...Read more
If you have a lymph node w/ a central hila but hypervascular can that be hypervascular due to a chronic two tooth abcess?
Lymph node: Lymph node involvement may be caused by infection anywhere in the body. The closer the proximity to the cause of infection, the higher the incidence of involvement. There may also be other causes. See your Dentist to have infection treated ASAP. ...Read more
My right lung upper zone shows patchy fibrocalcific changes. Remaining lung fields are clear. Both hila normal. can I work in UAE. i also smoke?
Prom Pericardial LNS; Axillary LNS w/ Prom Fat Hila; Incr prevasc LNS; Sm non-pathog LNS w/in Sup Medistinum; Enlarged R Hilar LNS. - All means what?
Lymph nodes: What symptoms did you have or do you have that made your doctor look for those nodes in your chest? Do you have a cough, wt loss, night sweats? As a 40 year old female, if the node had been a non caveating granuloma I would say sounds like sarcoidosis. May want to see an oncologist who deals with enlarged nodes or possible a rheumatologist. Biopsy of non cancer is relieving. ...Read more
Chest X-ray shows - increased interstitial markings and prominent hila. What does this mean? what would be the treatment?
Usually ↑ed lung H20: which increase interstitial (between cells) water, thus "markings" and more dense hila (the central portion of lung area, each side of mediastinum; portion near central chest at which lung arteries, veins & bronchi enter lungs), also commonly due to ?ed interstitial water. Thus a "judgement" about X-Ray "appearance" (assuming exposure correct) suggesting ?ed lung water, e.g. pulmonary edema. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can lpr cause an echogenic hypervascular lymph node with hila and a few foci ? Biopsy no cancer found
What percentage of extensive calcified lymph nodes in pulmonary hila, combined with bright red blood in sputum are cancerous in nature?
Very low: Cancerous nodes very seldom calcify much. In my old home in Kansas City, many (maybe most) folks had some calcium flecks from old histoplasmosis. I'm very concerned though if you're coughing up blood. That's cancer until proved otherwise, and you're entitled to have calcified nodes from some other cause. Please get it properly worked up. Best wishes. ...Read more
Chronically low T4 Free, low to normal Thyrotropin Mildly heterogeneous thyroid echotexture lymph nodes without fatty hila endo says no problem?
Level 1 lymph node 1.2 cm w/ hila small punctate foci hypervascular fna show reactive inflam node found out have 2 molar abcesses can this cause ?
Yes: Any inflammation in the area drained by a lymph node can lead to enlargement of the node. It may take weeks to months for the lymph node to subside after successful treatment of the infection. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Rheumatoid arthritis -15yr. Chestxray- increased interstitial markings, prominent hila. Handxray- reduced PIP&MCP joints. Reason for this? Treatment?
See details: joint narrowing suggest damage. The chest x ray findings may be related to infection or to interstitial lung disease secondary to the RA. This individual needs immediate evaluation to determine the cause and extent of the pulmonary issue. Aggressive treatment is needed and that treatment depends on the cause. Have you seen a rheumatologist? ...Read more
