Doctor insights on:
Partial Collapse: The lingula is the lower anterior (front) portion of the left upper lobe of the lung that corresponds to the right middle lobe. Atelectasis is collapse of a portion of the lung. So, subsegmental atelectasis means that portions of lung segments of the lingula are incompletely aerated. May indicate bronchial blockage, poor breathing, or even early infection. ...Read more
What's a 14mm noncalcified left upper lobe parenchymal pulmonary mass adjacent atelectasis.Left upper lobe bronchus/hillar peribronchial cuffing/thick?
Mgt PHI: The imaging may be uploaded to an inbox consultation. From your description I would suggest a follow up imaging study with an evaluation with additional information. Have you smoked? Is there a family history of cancer? Have you been tested for any infections? The mass is probably impinging on the airway and causing areas of collapse, called atelectasis. This area is prone to secondary infection ...Read more
Patchy subpleural parenchymal scars in both apies on right lung middle segmental lobe and inferior lingular ligament?
Xray result:Prominent perihilar interstitial markings suggesting bronchitis.No superimposed infiltrate or atelectasis.I thought bronchitis didn't show?
Subtile finding: Normal bronchial walls are hard to see on a chest x ray (arrows in pic). If they are thickened one can see them a little more. Even so, it is a tough call so we say "suggestive of" to say we really are not sure, but we see enough to be more than just a little suspicious. For complete eval of lung tissue we do high resolution CT. "Bronchitis" is a clinical diagnosis, though, so listen to your Dr. ...Read more
Ct chest adrenal nodule 1.9 CM right. Lungs demonstrate babisalar dependent atelectasis small subpleural bullae noted right up lobe trace pericardial?
Adrenal eval: Hi. The adrenal nodule needs to be evaluated. What were the Hounsfield units on the non-contrast scan of the nodule? Your endocrinologist will determine: 1) if it's producing any hormones, and 2) if it's growing. If high Hounsfield units, it needs sooner evaluation. Any hirsutism, amenorrhea, diabetes, serious high blood pressure, sweating, headache, palpitations, etc? Good luck! ...Read more
CT findings: Nonspecific findings of lung injury. Usually not a big deal. Check with your lung doc. ...Read more
Xray results showed perihilarbronchial wall thickening w/ perihliar densities w/out evidence of pleural effusion, focal consolidation or pneumothorax?
Linear opacities in the lung base are noted compatible with subsegmental atelectasis?meaning (asthma, cough, flem, no fever, seen specialist asthma
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
Ct angiogram shows non calcified opacity on middle lobe 4mm. Appearance of benign intrapulmonary lymph node on lung with no pleural abnormalites.
Opacity: The question to your doctor should be - is this an incidental pulmonary nodule or something more concerning. If the ct angio was done for something completely unrelated, and it was a true incidental finding, some guidelines say that under a certain size (4mm) for low risk patients (no smoking, etc), then no follow up is needed. Otherwise a biopsy or interval imaging followup is appropriate. ...Read more
Mri, mild joint efusion seen, thickning lateral colateral legamnt sugest tendinosis, bone edema involve femora condyle n tibial plateu further treatment?
Peripheral to linear density left upr lung 2nd3rd rib. Questnble faint density. 1cm-1.5cm. Culd b related tofocal atelectasis or artifact. Cancer?
Not too likely: Lung cancer risk will depend a lot on if you are a smoker or have history of being exposed to industrial debride. Family history plays a role as well. All that being said, your cxr description is not commonly found in cancer patients at the site of the tumor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chesty cough>6wk,X-ray show lung well expanded no collapse/consolidation.licency of lung marking within both upper lobes.is it serious?clear phlegm.
What does this mean chest ct scan ..mild infiltrates,left lower lobe may represent discoid atelectasis and or pneumonia ,mild left pleural effusion..
CT scan: Proper interpretation of CT or "cat scan" results is a tricky proposition and requires a physician to clinically correlate with multiple factors. The findings above may simply represent excessive mucus or possibly an infection. An effusion means there is some type of fluid in or around the lungs. ...Read more
Chest X-ray showed focal patchy lingular opacity No change from 2012 Likely represents chronic airspace collapse &/or consolidation. Is this serious?
MRI: Extensive bone marrow edema of navicular with subtle subchondral linear focus of hypointense signal at proximal articular surface. Doc said AVN?
Avn: Yes that's what it appears. Follow up with the orthopedic surgeon or podiatrist ...Read more
Chest CT scan subsegmental atelectasis versus fibrosis in medial margins of r \l upper lobes abutting mediastinum was f/u for 6mm ground glass nodule
The fibrosis and : Atelectasis isnt anything to worry about, just some lung tissue collapsed on itself and scarring. The ground glass nodule is something that may need longer term follow up to make sure it doesnt grow. These can be due to something called atypical adenomatous hyperplasia (aah). ...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
