Minimal Basilar Scarring Meaning
What does "dependent atelectasis is present posteriorly within the lungs. Mild biapical pleural/parenchymal scarring is present." mean?
Poor inspiration: Probably related to a poor inspiratory effort when the radiograph was taken. Often times if people are in pain or are obese they cannot take a big breath (which would expand the lungs and give a better look to the radiologist) so what we see are low lung volumes and small areas of collapsed lung - all told it is usually not a sign of anything. Sometimes atelectasis can cause a fever. ...Read more
Chest XRay - Latetal view demonstrates blunting of both costophrenic angles w/either small lung base pleural effusions are chronic pleural thickening.
If you have: previous chest X-rays to compare, that would be helpful in making the determination between mild pleural thickening(scarring) or effusion(fluid). There are numerous potential etiologies for each. Further imaging could include ultrasound, special chest xray views(decubitus views ), or CT scan. ...Read more

Mr resultsi: opacification of the left petrous apex is present without associated restricted diffusion or enhancement. Possible cause?
Attenuation of hep parenchyma. Diffuse capsular enhancement and focal capsular retraction on liver ct. No focal lesions. Could sle serositis cause ?
COPD: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease encompasses emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Basically, this means that smoking or another inhalant has made distortions in the architecture of your lungs that make it harder for them to work. Atelectasis and scarring physical changes that occur secondary to COPD. ...Read more

subsegmental emboli are not excluded. (Findings) in the "impressions" says no pulmonary emboli. Clot or no clot?

What is the meaning of my xray result. Lordotic view shows minimal hazy infiltrates in the left apex. Consider minimal PTB of undetermined activity.?
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
LVEF 41% at stress.reversible ischemia involving apicoanterior, distal anteroseptal..reduced, non reversible perfusion involving the mid basal.means?
Mild prominence of cortical sulci at the top of the calvarium reflecting minor involutional change.MR brain without constrast otherwise unremarkable.
My x-ray results show I have Fibrotic scarring, right upper lobe Minimal fluid versus pleural thickening left costrophrenic sulcus.What is that means?
Need to see images: Based on the description you gave, I would need to see the images. It certainly could be some minimal scarring in the right upper lobe & nothing to worry about. It could also be some fluid there, which if that's that case, it would need to be sampled more than likely. The pleural thickening could be related to the fibrosis, or potentially another cause. Let me know if you can upload the xray. ...Read more
Chest X-ray showed focal patchy lingular opacity No change from 2012 Likely represents chronic airspace collapse &/or consolidation. Is this serious?
What does "minimal ectasia
versus tiny aneurysm of the P1 segment of the left posterior cerebral artery" mean??
My MRI results say increased CSF within optic nerve sheaths, mild flattening of the posterior globes, and minimal paranasal sinus mucosal thickening. ?
Increased CSF: The optic nerve sheaths communicate with the brain and any elevation of CSF pressure is transmitted through them. You didn't mention papilledema on your eye exam, but it is probably there. These are worrisome findings and I would immediately follow up with a neurologist or your treating provider. ...Read more
Explain in laymen: "subtle asymmetric haziness at peripheral left lung. This may represent developing consolidation but nonspecific. No pneumothrax"?
