Ultrasound Of Abdomen Shows Bulls Eye
Ultrasound of abdomen showed 1.2cm dark spot in the right lobe of liver. CT scan done without contrast, inconclusive. Do I need a CT with contrast?
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Us of gallbladder showed lower right lobe of liver grossly normal CT scan showed mild diffuse fatty liver test where 3wks apart how could it?
Different techniques: A gallbladder us is focussed on the gallbladder, not the liver. Mild fatty liver may not be easily appreciated on us depending on the patient size and acoustic conditions. A non contrast ct allows for measurement of the actual density of the liver and compare it to the spleen to better quantify the liver fat. Also, what one radiologist feels is within normal may be mildly fatty to another. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
CT scan of my lungs showed patchy, nodular infiltrate lower left and right lobes today the report stated there was interval resolution, what is IR?
Swollen nodes in neck & now abdominal wall. CT of abd/pelv normal, CT of chest shows small amount of pleural fluid, otherwise normal. Virus? Worse?
30 week ultrasound showed asymmetrical brain ventricles on fetus. Rest of the scan perfect. Is this a normal variant?
Not really.: No, this is not a normal variant and is usually indicative of some type of compromise and blood flow, to the side of the brain where the ventricle is more prominent. The good news, is that a fetus's brain is very resilient, and as long as all else goes well from here on in, the baby can develop normally. ...Read more
My CT scan shows few ill defined linear reticular opacities noted in the superior segment of the left lower lobe. What does it mean?
My middle right side of stomach is enlarged. An ultrasound showed abnormal large shadow but MRI (no dye...Just lots of iodine) showed normal. Ideas?
Abdominal wall: If you think the left or right side of your abdomen is sticking out and imaging is normal, it might be caused by an abdominal wall weakness or hernia. If you have had a abdominal surgical incision, a ventral hernia may occur causing a bulge or protuberance. These kinds of hernias are often painless and are found on physical examination. Good luck. ...Read more

Im a 46m, Ultrasound "There is a subtle and vague hypoechoic area, 1.5 CM w/out internal vascularity in the right hepatic lobe of Liver". otherwise unremarkable. Does this sound benign? Waiting on MRI
Kub ultrasound finding of anechoic focus at the middle pole measuring 1.5x1.5cm, left kidney. Minimal pelvocaliectasia right kidney.What treatment?
Probably benign: A description of an anechoic focus in the kidney typically refers to a cyst or a cystic lesion. Minimal pelvocaliectasis typically refers to very mild dilatation of the pelvis & calyces which is where urine drained into before it flow out into the ureter. These findings do not sound concerning as pelvocaliectasis may occur when you have a full bladder. Please check with your doctor to be sure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

CT SCAN of abdomen says,the dome of the liver is partially excluded.The liver is normal in size and attenuation,on noncontrast image.what does it mean?
Didn't get to see it: "Excluded" means it wasn't in the pictures. Somehow, the tech or someone made a mistake and didn't get enough pictures. The abdomen starts at the diaphragm (which covers the top, or dome, of the liver on the right side). A CT of the abdomen should go from the diaphragm through the pelvis. However, in your case they started lower down - missing the top (or dome) of the liver. ...Read more
Ct images reveal a spiculated mixed attenuating solid mass at the superior segment of the left lower lobe lungs est. Vol of 203cc. Der are minute calc?
Probable biopsy: A spiculated mass is often worrisome for cancer. However this also could be from a prior lung infection. Your doctors may consider a needle biopsy of the mass or a pet/ct scan. It would be helpful to compare this finding with any old chest xrays or ct scans to see if this is a new mass. ...Read more

Blurred vision in one eye, headaches, muscle twitches, dark/yellow circles around eyes. Cat scan of brain & blood work normal. Sound serious?
See an eye doc: Even though cat scan normal, you should still be seen by an ophthalmologist given your symptoms especially if they are progressive. It could be as simple as needing an updated pair of glasses if this is just eye strain(which can cause blurred vision, headaches, and stress related twitching around eyes), but it needs to be ruled out because it could be more serious. ...Read more
Bull's eye by US: Ultrasound images can be very helpful to clinicians: they are pretty easy to obtain, not too expensive, very safe for patients and often lead to diagnosis. When the bowel telescopes on itself, aka intussuseption, it causes pain and obstruction and quickly becomes an emergency. With the walls of the bowel telescoped or folded onto themselves it looks like a target or bull's eye on ultrasound. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mri abd prob focal modular hyperplasia & cyst (small) on liver. If md orders ultrasound of abdomen, what will it show that the MRI didn't is us needed
See below: Us may be used to confirm the cyst if the MRI was not performed with contrast. Us does not help further characterize the focal nodular hyperplasia, although it can be used for future follow up. It may also be possible that biopsy of the "probable" focal nodular hyperplasia was recommended and us is done to see if this nodule can be seen on us for us-guided biopsy. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I was never told I had scoliosis as a kid or teenager; but, found out last year I have moderate levoscoliosis. I've had back pain for 3 Mos. (had ultrasound of abdomen-all normal). Could scoliosis be causing the pain & why would I have scoliosis now?
Can cause pain : It might be simplistic to say you had scoliosis when you were younger and no one looked. Still I have seen over the years patients who developed scoliosis as they aged without reason behind it. Some develop because of spinal lesions. It is always a good idea to talk to your doctor and decide if more tests are needed ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

How is ultrasound of abdomen and pelvis done?am i asked to take my clothes off?i'm 17 and will feel discomfort naked
You will probably: need to change into a hospital gown. Ultrasound requires the use of gel on the skin, and you don't want that getting all over your clothes.Also,your clothing may hinder the technologist from being able to freely evaluate your abdomen. Only the area being scanned should be exposed.If the pelvic is transvaginal(it may not be), they will use a gel covered cylindrical probe inserted into the vagina. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

ESR level 36 age 63 all blood test reports normal , ultrasound of abdomen, X-ray chest and ECG normal but prostrate 25 gms but no abnormality, Possibl?
Non specific ESR: Mild increased ESR is common and non specific - it can be caused by inflammation or infection of any kind, by anemia, by pregnancy, and by certain drugs (EG, Dextran, methyldopa, oral contraceptives, penicillamine, procainamide, theophylline, and vitamin A). This test is more useful as a marker that indicates improvement or worsening of a previously diagnosed condition. ...Read more

Would an ultrasound of abdomen show hernia? If you're testicles hang very low-stomach protrudes out when empty not overweight, signs of what? Age 23
Physical Exam Best: A hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall through which the inner layer of the abdominal cavity stretches thru, creating a sac. The problem with ultrasounds (or even ct scans) is that they are usually done laying down; gravity and relaxation of the abdominal wall may allow the hernia to reduce and be missed. The best exam is done standing, with and without exertion. I recommend you see a surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
