My transvaginal sonogram printout shows my baby on the left side. Is it actually on the left or the printout is a mirror image?

My transvaginal sonogram printout shows my baby on the left side. Is it actually on the left or the printout is a mirror image?

Well generally rever: Radiology convention is to diaply the image as if the patient is facing you.; as to left and right... Your baby moves around a lot
so it is a moot point. But in general things on the left of the image are on the patients right. ...Read more

But, if you want a specific back x-ray, you need to have a separate x-ray.

Please understand radiation from studies are cumulative. If not necessary, avoid studies that require the use of radiation. ...Read more

I had a ct scan of my brain today. Is it normal to have a graph over top of the imagine then the next image without the graph shows a bright white spot?

What????: Would you strike out into the wilderness with no camping or hiking experience, & having never looked at a topographic or hiking map? And then you take a first look at the map and are immediately confused? So what do you do? Post a question on HikeTap? This is analogous, except the knowledge gap in medicine is way, way wider. Just relax and wait for the report. ...Read more

Hx breast ca, masses found thyroid&spleen. Report not in yet but PET cross image neck show 2 really bright lit area each side of trachea. What's mean?

Hard to say: So you had a breast cancer and now you have a mass on your thyroid and spleen and the result pending but you had a PET scan only for the neck that showed bright spot on the neck
the PET scan could indicate either the thyroid mass or it could be showing a lymph node on each side of your neck that could eventually be related to the mass on the thyroid

What does it mean for a blood smear to show moderate polychromasia and moderate Schistocytes? Google doesn't give a good picture. :) Thanks

What does it mean for a blood smear to show moderate polychromasia and moderate Schistocytes? Google doesn't give a good picture. :) Thanks

Worrisome: Look for something fragmenting the red blood cells. If the person isn't obviously sick with disseminated intravascular coagulation or thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, perhaps they have an old-fashioned mechanical heart valve. Polychromasia should prompt a search for causes of hemolysis. The pathologist may want to review this slide. Best wishes. ...Read more

I got my CBC report - it shows RBC NORMOCYTIC NORMOCHROMIC blood picture. What is this, is it normal or some dangerous thing?

Good shape: This just tells you that the shape of a red blood cell is normal and so is the concentration of hemoglobin in the cell. The lab test in this regard will be normal if the red blood cell count and percentage by volume is also normal, informing you that you Do Not have a normocytic, normochromic anemia.

Did a pelvic ultrasound this week the results show all the parts but no picture of the right ovary and its the part that hurts. Should I do it again?

Did a pelvic ultrasound this week the results show all the parts but no picture of the right ovary and its the part that hurts. Should I do it again?

CT: Do you still have your appendix? The ovaries don't usually hurt as much as they get blamed for. I would think more about your uterus having a spasm with pain radiating to your right side, or appendix, colon spasm, abdominal wall spasm.

If a thorough physical examination can't delineate the source of the pain, you may need a ct scan, but I wouldn't have high hopes it would give a specific answer. ...Read more
