Depends reason 4test: How concerning the finding of increased fluid report on a test result depends on the reason the test was ordered. Reported but unrelated finding may not causing any problem.

Contact the ordering physician who can interpret it in the proper clinical context ...Read more

Many times the new stuff was there on prior scans but was too small or just not sliced thur by the scanner...the slices on a CT can be several mm apart. Hang in there! ...Read more

Some fluid collections are just watched closely, an some just go away on there own. Remember our bodies are made up of water primarily and this can, in essence, collect up anywhere. ...Read more
