Parenchymal Infiltrates Mean
Several things: Heterogenous pattern of liver on ultrasound can mean liver disease such as cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis.Metatatic disease, lymphoproliferative diseasse, and fatth liver. Fatty liver usually has increased echogencity. Left lobe can enlarge to compensate for loss of liver function as long this as normal appearance to its echogenicity. Blood tests, physical examination, history, biopsy help. ...Read more

Xray findings: commonly seen in tuberculosis (TB). Infiltrates are whiter areas seen in the lungs on chest xray. Although TB is the most common cause of bilateral upper-lobe infiltrates, these can also be seen in diseases such as silicosis, ankylosing spondylitis, or actinomycosis. Other tests for TB should be done, and if positive, proper treatment is very important. ...Read more
What does Diffuse coarsened interstitial markings throughout both lungs w/bilateral hilar prominence and perihilar infiltrates mean. ?
Tissue density: Of kidney cortex. Cortex of kidneys contains nephrons, about 1 million/kideny. The area of kideney fuction, filtration ; reabsorbtion. Ultrasound is study using sound waves whuch either pass through tissue or bounce back. Echotexture is nil or black through water ; becomes progressively more white as tissus becomes more dense. Thus white for bone or stone. Dark/hypoechoic texture is usually better. ...Read more
Usually not much: You didn't mention what organ was studied. In most cases, this just describes the tissue with perhaps some fatty tissue or even scar. Fibrous tissue also but all of this is nothing to worry about now. See what your doctor has to add ...Read more
Increased /coarse hepatic parenchymal echotexture (liver parenchymal disease ) with prominent portal vein and splenomegaly? Wat it means
Severe damage: When damage to the liver occurs for a long time, meaning years, the liver becomes scarred and the veins that bring blood to the liver become distended because of resistance inside the liver. This increased pressure causes the spleen to take more blood and become enlarged. This is called cirrhosis of the liver and can be due to any number of things including alcohol and viral hepatitis. ...Read more
Hepatic parenchyma: This is a term used to describe the tissue of the liver. It helps distinguish between different parts of the liver such as the liver capsule, the blood vessels, and the parenchyma. The parenchyma is where you liver performs it's metabolism, such as storing energy, releasing energy, or eliminating waste from the blood. ...Read more
What does mildly low-lying cerebellar tonsils mean? What does unremarkable unenhanced brain parenchyma mean?
What Organ?: The term means that the expected uniformity of an organs' tissue texture has been degraded and the appearance has assumed a rather more coarse texture. This can be due to chronic disease but is not specific. ...Read more
Lung nodule: It is a nodule in the edge of the lung. These are frequently benign, but routine follow up is usually recommended to document stability. Macmahon h, austin j, gamsu, g, et al: guidelines for management of small pulmonary nodules detected on ct scans: a statement from the fleischner society. Radiology 2005; 237:395-400. ...Read more
Fatty liver likely: Lots of substances may "infiltrate" the liver & increase echogenicity (sound waves bounce off liver better). Fatty liver is most common--due to diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, drinking too much alcohol. Lose weight & stop alcohol consumption if these are your problems. Fatty liver with abnormal liver functions (blood tests) is however considerably more concerning than just an echogenic liver. ...Read more
