MS & liver spot: It is common for tests to pick up things we did not know about, and sometimes this helps us. In this case, the significance of this is not clear. MS does not cause changes like this on the liver. It is likely a liver specialist would think this is benign, but we should leave it to them to decide. ...Read more

Hemangiomas vs. cyst: Bunny: t2 lesions in the liver are typically not cancerous and represent usually hemangiomas or liver cysts. When they say did not completely fill with contrast, that hints to me that they are thinking hemangiomas. A sonogram is a good follow up test for these or a ct scan to confirm. The ct should be with contrast and with delayed images. A sonogram will spare you the radiation of a ct scan. ...Read more

What are non-enhancing t2 hyperintense lesions and chorid plexus xanthogranulomas? Should I be concerned?

What are non-enhancing t2 hyperintense lesions and chorid plexus xanthogranulomas? Should I be concerned?

Probably not: These findings are almost always of no concern. However, without reviewing the study, it is hard to know what the radiologist who read the study is referring specifically to. I need more information. FYI, the scan on the right has tiny T2 hyperintensities of no significance. Check this out: http://radiopaedia.org/articles/choroid-plexus-xanthogranuloma ...Read more
