If by thickening: You r referring to inflammation then the etiology is either infect/ischemic/or malignany. Cts and MRI will show the wall to be thickened in each of the above causes. It can also be from chronic straining, prolapse and certain stds. Ulcerative proctitis is a type of inflamm. Bowel disease can also present as thickening in imaging studies. They are all diagnosed by proctoscopy with biopsies or cultures. ...Read more
Cystitis, obstruction: Inflammation or utis cause bladder thickening. Bladder outflow obstruction, e.g. Tight, non relaxing bladder neck, prostate enlargement, urethral vaves or a urethral stricture causes all cause bladder trabeculation (enlargement of bladder muscle fibers). Also neurogenic bladder, detrussor-sphincter dyssynergia (sphincter conractswith voiding) but should relax & bladder reflux all cause thickening. ...Read more
Possible obstruction: The bladder wall becomes thickened if it is working against resistance, such as scar tissue or narrowing of the urine channel, or in some neurological diseases. Bladder thickness is variable and it is sometimes not a problem. It can also be a tumor, but that is rare.

Partial blockage: "Reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall" likely came from a nuclear stress test report. It suggests that part of the heart does not get enough oxygen when stressed (example: during exercise), but does get enough oxygen when at rest. This can happen if there is a partial blockage of an artery.Symptom may be chest pressure or pain when walking. Follow-up with the doctor is very important. ...Read more
Nope: The gallbladder is a small hollow organ that holds bile. This helps us digest fat. When you look at the gallbladder with an ultrasound the bile can appear like sludge which probably just describes the consistency of the bile. Thickening of the gallbladder wall can be seen on the ultrasound as well and usually is a result of inflammation. These are two different findings. ...Read more
Outflow obstruction: To bladder such as enlared prostate or urethral stricture in males or bladder prolapse or obstructing ureterocele in females. Can also be due to neurogenic bladder dysfuction in either sex or cystitis can also be reported if bladder is only partly filled ; appears thickened on ultrasound. Can also be a perfectly innocent finding.. ...Read more
9 mm?: Do you mean 9 millimeters? If so the gallbladder should be removed as it is likely chronically inflamed. Top normal size in a contracted gallbladder is 7 mm, the size can vary depending on how recently you have eaten, but 9 mm is definitely abnormal. See a surgeon for evaluation. ...Read more

The left ventricle is the main part of the heart. The term reversible means that during stress this part of the heart does not get enough blood and it implies that the artery going to that part of the heart has a blockage. ...Read more
