Suspicious Hazy Densities Left Upper Lung Field
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...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
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
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
Questionable small density at the left upper lung field and linear atelectasis is superimposed on the left hilum.What? Cancer? Remainder lungs clear.
Possible: The possibility of cancer is almost always there. The risk depends on the smoking history, family history of cancer, the size of the mass, etc.. Smokers are at higher risk. Certain cancers are familial. Larger spots and those with ragged edges are more likely to be cancerous. Consultation with oncologist or lung specialist may be considered.. ...Read more
Xray : Right lung upper zone shows patchy fibrocalcific changes. Remaining lung fields are clear. Evidence of bilateral bifid rib L anterior 4 R 3?
Consult ordering dr: Bifid ribs are congenital and usually are of no consequence and are variations of normal. Fibrocalcific disease is probably related to previous granulomatous infection. Most common is tuberculosis. In Southwest coccidiodomycosis is fungal cause. In midwest Blastomycosis is usually cause. Long term antibiotic treatment sounds like a chronic infection like one of the above. Various testing available ...Read more
I had lung ctscan showing groundglass opacities n bilateral lower&right upper lobe representing cellular nonspecific interstitial pneumonia what is it?
It could: be a number of things, from innocuous to serious, but more details would are necessary to narrow it down. For example, what is the size? ...Read more
Lung CT scan impression: multiple small nodules largest 6mm ill-defined semisolid noncalcified medial left upper lobe ?
Lung Nodules:: It is fairly common for people to have benign lung nodules that are incidentally found on ct scans. Would recommend a follow-up scan in a few months just to make sure they are not growing. If you smoke, please stop! but, i wouldn't be too worried about these small lung nodules. Check back with your physician for a follow-up plan. ...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?
Out of Context: Please re-submit the question and report on why the x-ray was taken and what else was included in the report. ...Read more
ElementaryDearWatson: There are generally accepted patterns of normal lung anatomy with chest x-rays, CT, MRI,etc.So something"suspicious"means possibly not normal. And "opacity" is something denser than it should be in the area being looked at.Such findings could be old or new, significant or insignificant depending on the specific situation(symptoms,history, physical findings), which is up to the doctor to figure-out ...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
Lung CT. Several pleural tags bilateral upper lobes. 7mm nodule peripheral right lower lobe. What are causes for pleural tags not related to nodule?
A CT finding of a, stellate 1.6 x 1.1 CM subpleural right anterior segment upper lobe nodule is present. Additional 2mm middle lobe nodule is cancer?
Could Be: The right upper lobe nodule sounds most suspicious and may require some sort of biopsy to be sure. Comparison with any older imaging studies might add more information. The 2mm nodule is too small to assess and would likely be put under surveillance. Hope things work out for the best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
