i have severe pain on my stomach, and the ultrasound and ct scan showed a cyst on my right ovary. i also have a endometriosis. will the cyst go away?

Depends

Ultrasound
It depends on what kind of cyst it is and how big it is. An endometriotic cyst may shrink with certain medications, but usually requires surgery. Simple cysts frequently resolve on their own, especially they are not large. There are many other types of cysts and rumors of the ovary that may require surgery.

Can ic show up on a ultrasound scan?

No

Sonogram
The two primary diagnostic tests for IC are cystoscopy with hydrodistention and possible biopsy and Parsons's test. A bladder ultrasound may be abnormal or normal but it is not a definitive diagnostic test for IC. There are some physicians who would also argue about the validity of the Parson's test.

Dr. David N. Dang answered:

How much can an ultrasound, or ct scan cost?

See below

Sonogram
This usually depends on the specific test and varies among imaging centers and hospitals. The cost also varies with cash vs insurance payments. An ultrasound typically is in the $200 range and a CT is about $300-500 with cash payments. Contrast for CT adds more. It is best to call nearby imaging centers. Also advisable to evaluate the type of equipments and not costs alone.

Dr. David N. Dang answered:

Ultrasound showing a mass but CT Scan normal?

Depends

Ct_scan
This depends on the organ of interest. This is not uncommon with the ovaries and uterus as US has an advantage. This is same with the breasts as well. As for other organs in the abdomen, sometimes it may depends on the patient's body habitus or lack of intravenous contrast/dye that some finding may not be apparent on CT.

What do white marks on a kidney ultrasound scan mean?

Tough Question

Sonogram
Boy thats a tough question. Usually things that are bright on ultrasound are calculi (stones), air, or fat. If it were air the pt would likely be very sick. Fat is almost always benign, and stones can cause symptoms ranging from mild pain to sepsis.

What can a ct scan show that an ultrasound can't show?

Better details

_ultrasound_of_heart
the resolution, details shown, on CT is more effective than that of ultrasound. Ultrasound shows liquids e.g. cysts and effusion better and is cheaper but in obese patients ultrasound has limited penetration. Accordingly, ultrasound, in these patients, is usually replaced by CT that views fatty tissues better and penetrates as deep as needed for better resolution.
