Pelvis ultrasound shows no acute process identified found?

Pelvis ultrasound shows no acute process identified found?

Good for you: "No acute process" means nothing was seen to suggest an active disease. Presumably any "significant" chronic process would be described in the report. Sometimes we radiologists shy away from just using the term "normal" so we don't have to explain it if we end up in court. ...Read more

Chest xray reports impressions: pulmonary hyperexpansion. No acute process is identified. What should I do?

Chest xray reports impressions: pulmonary hyperexpansion. No acute process is identified. What should I do?

Are you symptomatic?: Lung hyperexpansion can be a sign of obstructive pulmonary disease (copd), asthma or just artifactual appearance on radiograph. If you are experiencing shortness of breath (and no other symptoms like chest pain), the best way to know whether you have something that causes truly hyperinflated lungs is to do a lung function test. If your lung function is abnormal, you should see a pulmonologist. ...Read more

Can you please explain to me how to identify an acute episode of schizophrenia?

Can you please explain to me how to identify an acute episode of schizophrenia?

Psychosis: Schizophrenia can present a number of different ways. One is psychosocial withdrawal, lack of motivation, a distant look in the eyes, a near confusional appearance, lack of attending to hygiene and appropriate clothing. A definite change in personality is noted. If paranoia's present the person may have auditory hallucinations that talk at the inside their head or have a running dialogue going on about their behavior inside their mind. They may feel that people can magically read their minds. They may also feel that their thoughts are being broadcast out to other people, that their thoughts can be heard a loud outside their minds, and that they can magically put thoughts into the minds of others or the others may magically steal thoughts from their minds. They may exhibit a lack of motivation. Bizarre rituals may also be noted. Vocational, educational, and relational abilities are frequently harmed to a great degree. ...Read more

Sudden onset pain MTP joint. Xray showed bipartite sesamoid, no fracture. MRI identified only reactive marrow oedema, what are my treatment options?

Sudden onset pain MTP joint. Xray showed bipartite sesamoid, no fracture. MRI identified only reactive marrow oedema, what are my treatment options?

This is a difficult: Thing to treat. You can try custom orthotics with a built in dancers pad. If you work out or excercise you will have to stop for an extended time period. The sesamoid bone is small and the blood supply very tenuous so you need to be very cautious. Other options include crutch walking for a couple or weeks or wearing a stiff sole shoe so you don't propulse at the mpj allowing rest of the joint. ...Read more

What does this mean. From a shoulder/lefft upper amr xray. There is evidence of acute fracture or focal destructive process.

What does this mean. From a shoulder/lefft upper amr xray. There is evidence of acute fracture or focal destructive process.

Fracture or Tumor: Did you suffer trauma that would have caused a fracture? If not, there's obviously something else going on "focal destructive process." How old are you?
