Here are some...: Most likely, that finding in CT just incidentally denotes the presence of a weakened pouching-out at that location, which is considered as congenital anomaly which requires no need for active treatment as long as being free of its possibly related symptoms.

Wrong: Ct scanning of the abdomen and pelvis shows the colon, yes, but not subtle mucosal lesions such as early cancer. It shows your internal organs such as the liver, spleen, kidneys and pancreas in great detail. It also shows your small intestinal and the numerous blood vessels. It can evaluate the connective tissue and fat to uncover inflammatory conditions or infections. ...Read more

Ultrsound report reads liver parenchyma is course echogenic and difficult to penetrate suggesting diffuse fatty infiltration no gross abnormality?
Fatty liver: Fatty liver is just that a liver filled with fat and this usually occurs in people who have a high fat diet, diabetes, and usually overweight. In rare rare cases it can lead to cirrhosis so it should not be ignored. Weight loss, low fat diet, and reduction in alcohol intake are important. A physician should be involved to monitor changes in the liver enzymes that are simple lab tests to check. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No contrast CT showed ill defined hypodense area on hepatic lobe. Ordered new CT w contrast w liver mass protocol not hemangioma protocol concerning?
Get iv contrast CT: There are many reasons to have a liver mass, more often than not, they are benign, but clearly depending on past medical history, It is difficult without contrast to differentiate these lesions, there are various ways to give intravenous contrast. A hemangioma protocol is also known as a triphasic study, allows one to look at three phases of liver perfusion but more complex to do. ...Read more
Trace hematuria, and proteinuria on some ua dipstick. Blood work shows normal kidney function. Ct w/contrast, xray kub, and us all normal. Ideas?
Benign glomerular dz: Hematuria and proteinuria suggests a glomerular cause ( kidney filter) since the urologic studies are negative. Kidney biopsy would be diagnostic but makes no sense since risk of progressive renal failure is very low as long as the urine protein is less than 500 mg a day. Diagnosis would include IgA nephropathy, thin basement membrane disease among others. As long as normal function u r ok. ...Read more
Whole abdomen scan shows livr outlin wit increasd echotxtr, urinary blader pvr vol 43ml.?N scan impresion says very early fatty changes liver?
CT findings: A periampullary diverticulum is a small outpouching near the area where the bile duct drains into the small intestine. They are usually of no consequence whatsoever and are only found on CT scan. Rarely it could affect the ability of the bile to flow properly. This is very unusual. I would not worry about it unless you were actually having problems with your liver test numbers. Good luck. ...Read more
Terminal ileum biopsy: unremarkable ileal mucosa. Negative for active/ chronic ileitis, no granulomas seen. Meaning? Good?
Sampling: It is good that there was no pathology in the tissue biopsied. Please keep in mind that the pathologist can only tell you what was in the tissue that was removed, not what is the rest of the body. Lesions in Crohns can be patchy and you need to follow your doctor's advice about follow-up care. ...Read more
Chest CT scan shows "nonspecific subcentimeter mediastinal and right hilar lymph nodes" should this be repeated?
It means: that there are no significant abnormalities, the scan is essentially normal. ...Read more
Trace hematuria, and proteinuria on some ua. Blood work shows normal kidney function. Ct w/contrast, xray kub, and us all normal. Ideas?
I bet you're fine: I don't believe in even working up trace proteinuria. Even visible hematuria with otherwise normal labs and imaging isn't a cause for alarm; one person in maybe 100 has thin-gbm non-disease and except for slightly poorer hearing than the next person, these folks are otherwise normal. ...Read more
Mammo report NO INTERVAL CHANGES NOTED mean finding HETEROGENEOUSLY DENSE which may OBSCURE SMALL MASSES BIRADS 2 BENIGN FINDING why unltrasound ?
Not sure: Ct with and without xray dye is a good test for some kidney problems. Not sure what you mean by thickening. Ct shows kidney stones, masses, kidney size/location ; can give a good idea of whether the kidneys are working well. Ct is also good at showing the site of blockage of urine flow, when present. ...Read more
