If she has irregular periods then this could fit. Confirm with her doctor. ...Read more

''both ovaries show multiple small 4-6 mm predominantly peripherally placed follicles with increased stromal echogenicity likely pcod. Pod is clear''?

No: Ultrasound is only 1 part of a pcos diagnosis: you must also have irregular periods, and must have some evidence of excess androgen (usually high testosterone in blood, though it may vary.) if you have both these things, and if the ultrasound is as described, then it is likely you do have pcos. ...Read more

I am a trainee of radiology & have a query. "what can be the reasons of multiple tiny echogenic foci throughout the liver both central & peripheral.

I am a trainee of radiology & have a query. "what can be the reasons of multiple tiny echogenic foci throughout the liver both central & peripheral.

Tiny echogenic foci: The most common cause of "tiny echogenic foci throughout the liver" is punctate calcification secondary to prior granulomatous infection. Certain organisms are more common depending on what part of the world the patient has lived. Alternative considerations include gas bubbles within the biliary tree (pneumobilia) or the portal veins. There are differentiating imaging features. ...Read more

Transvaginal ultrasound shows multiple follicles on left ovary (pcos appearance) and area with hypoechoic center and echogenic rim?

Hormonal imbalances: Multiple follicles is a sign of high estrogen levels. Estrogen can be biotransformed into testosterone via the enzyme aromatase. Aromatase enzyme is increased by high Insulin levels. A high carb diet will increase both Insulin (via stimulatlon of pancreas) and estrogen (via competetive inhibition of glucoronidase enzyme) low carb diet is beneficial to reduce estrogen and insulin. ...Read more

What means? Uterus is normal, 2-3 small nabothian cyst on CX, Minimum fluid seen in cervical canal, both ovaries increased stroma and small follicles.

Break it down: The uterus or womb is normal. This means not enlarged and no mass or tumor. A nebothian cyst are small like zits on the surface of the cervix. They are very common and do not represent a disease process to be worried about. Increase in stroma means more than average tissue holding the ovaries together and small follicles is a way of saying that there are no large ovarian cysts present. ...Read more

Sir my wife got multiply follicles in the peripheral average 8mm - 11mm wat does that means?

It depends partly on: Whether or not she's on medication to stimulate ovarian follicles. If she is, it means her ovaries are partially responding. If not, she might have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, a condition that produces multiple follicles that don't maturing enough to release an egg. Often these follicles persist, creating multiple cysts. Mature follicles are 16-20 mm in size. I wish you both the best. Dr. Anne ...Read more

Hi... What is the meaning of "both ovaries show multiple peripheral small cysts with dense central stroma" is this serious? 34 yrs old. Female.

Not worrisome: The radiology report is describing the appearance of polycystic ovaries. If you have irregular periods, problems with weight gain, acne or unwanted hair growth - then you may have polycystic ovarian syndrome. Remember that in reproductive age women (who are not on birth control)the ovary's job is to make eggs (which grow in cysts) every month and so some cysts are normal, not problematic. ...Read more

What does increased cortical echogenicity mean?

What does increased cortical echogenicity mean?

Kidney appearance: Renal cortex has a typical appearance on ultrasound. It is normally less echo dense than the nearby liver.
Increased renal cortex echogenicity can be seen with renal disease, but does not mean so with certainty. It can be seen in otherwise normal functioning kidneys.
A radiologist will usually comment on it. The referring physician has to correlate this with clinical and lab findings. ...Read more

Needs evaluation.: A reading of an ultrasound saying that you have an echogenic lesion simply means that there is an area of the pancreas that reflects ultrasound differently than the rest of it.
