Possibly lice...: Lice start out as eggs, but they can hatch and become long and narrow bugs. That would be the most likely answer, but you really need a dermatology evaluation. Treating it is complicated, because you need to use the right shampoo to kill it (http://www. Ridlice. Com/lice-killing-shampoo.

I: I suggest you make an appointment with the doctor who ordered the pet scan to review the images and adults with him or her. Ctac stands for "attenuation correction ct". This is ct, or computed tomography part of the combined pet/ct scan. It is what show the anatomy meaning all the organs and structures in the body. The 3.75 just means how thick the cat scan slices are. Unless a special kind of pet/ct dcan was done specifically to evaluate for a brain tumor, it is actually quite rare for brain tumors to show up on regular pet scans and they are usually not easily seen on the ct component of the scan alone, especially if no IV contrast dye aw given in addition to the pet scan sugar tracer. ...Read more
