Right Apex Minimal
Minimal issue: The spine is designed to be like a stack of bricks, each level stacked straight and level with the next. there are thin cushions between the levels.Scoliosis defines a curve in any direction.The "thoracic" just means a focus in the spine with ribs. A minimal scoliosis can be how the spine grew, or be how the body deals with chest or back pain.This is common and not worth worrying about. ...Read more
My husband has some minor linear atelectasis in the left lingula with slight dependant atelectasis at the lung base also mild right hilar lymphadenop?
Needs evaluation: The presence of linear opacities with hilar adenopathy can be due to several acute or chronic conditions such as histoplasmosis, atypical mycobacterial infections, sarcoidosis, or rarely malignancy etc. Your husband should immediately see a lung specialist for a complete evaluation to determine the underlying cause, which will help determine appropriate course of treatment. ...Read more
What is the meaning of my xray result. Lordotic view shows minimal hazy infiltrates in the left apex. Consider minimal PTB of undetermined activity.?
What does "opacity in the left lower zone with obliteration of the left costophrenic angle-pleural effusion" mean?
Mild fixed perfusion deficit in the distal anterior/anteroapical wall. Mildly enlarged left ventricle. Mild global hypokinesis, with moderate hypokinesis of the inferior and apical walls. Mildly low resting left ventricular ef of 45% post test 51%?
What's the question?: This result indicates a blockage with resultant heart muscle damage (prior heart attack) likely involving an artery known as the "LAD". In this particular case the LAD is likely large with a "wrap around" to the apical inferior region. A cardiac catheterization would be recommended to visualize the coronary arteries followed by possible stenting if the area is "viable" and not scarred ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mri: mild opacification of the inferior left maxillary & right sphenoid sinuses. A mild opacification is seen in the inferior right mastoid air cells?
If no symptoms....: Probably nothing to worry about. Many patients have some mucosal thickening or a small amount of fluid in 1 or more of the sinuses or mastoid air cells. However, if there is pressure, pain or tenderness over the sinuses or around/behind an ear, a fever or foul smelling, bloody or purulent nasal secretions, a sinus infection or mastoiditis is a concern. Please see your doctor. ...Read more
Could you explain my report.
Stable foci of nodular pleural thickening measuring 3 mm along right minor fissure and 4 mm along right lateral inferior?
There are lots: of questions here. While you don't say, this sounds like a report from an imaging test such as a CT/MRI of the lung. The pleura is a thin membrane that covers the lungs. Thickening results from scarring, infection, tumors, etc. Unfortunately, most NODULAR pleural thickening is the result of cancer..either metastatic from the lung, breast or elsewhere, or mesothelioma. Your doctor can elaborate. ...Read more
Dr my father CT-scan report showed mild right & minimal left pleural effusion & mild volume loss in right lower lobe in basal segment.please clearify?
These findings: in isolation are not by themselves worrisome. But it depends on the entire picture, such as the reason why his doctor ordered this study. And also comparison study. The significance of these findings would depend entirely upon his underlying disease and what his previous scans showed. ...Read more
HRCT scan chest result focal parenchymal fibrosis rt middle & left lower lobe.w/mammal residual ground glass/opacities. What is the meaning? Prognosis
Hard to know: The findings indicate changes to lung structure in these areas, possibly some scarring and possibly with some fluid/inflammation of the smallest air pockets. Without more knowledge of the clinical history, however, any meaningful interpretation is impossible. The physician who ordered the test will discuss within context of the medical situation. ...Read more
Male 30,Chest CT shows 6 mm nodular density in the left upper lobe,minimal bibasilar dependent atelectasis, have shortness of breath,it needs surgery?
A very faint subpleural nodular density in the left lower lobe posterolaterally noted on CT Scan along with minor nodularity to posterior lung bases?
Ct scan of sinus report says: mild S shaped deformity of nasal septum with a large left apical osteophytes. Right sided concha Bullosa.Is this normal?
Yes: Normal variation, many do have these findings, don't mean a certain disease. The doctor who ordered the study would explain more, good luck ...Read more

My x-ray results show I have Fibrotic scarring, right upper lobe Minimal fluid versus pleural thickening left costrophrenic sulcus.What is that means?
Need to see images: Based on the description you gave, I would need to see the images. It certainly could be some minimal scarring in the right upper lobe & nothing to worry about. It could also be some fluid there, which if that's that case, it would need to be sampled more than likely. The pleural thickening could be related to the fibrosis, or potentially another cause. Let me know if you can upload the xray. ...Read more
What does it mean "homogenous opacity is seen in left basal zone with obliteration of left CP angle and opacity along left chest wall"?

Here are some ...: For an average 34-y-o female, you seemed getting a lot of radiation more than the necessity which most likely could be taken care of by good Hx + physical exam + effective counseling + collaborative F/U. Nonetheless, work closely with Doc. Besides, today's medical care has been under high pressure of political correctness, consumerism, & commercialism. Keeping these in mind will help the future. ...Read more
