Vascular Phleboliths In Pelvis
Explain Findings- right extrarenal pelvis of normal variant, free fluid & multiple vascular calcification's in pelvis, simple right renal cyst <1.0cm.
Multiple calcified densities at pelvis could represent phleboliths versus distal uretral lithiasis?
Had CT done of pelvic region. Shows arteriosclerotic calcifications in iliac arteries. What condition causes this?
Pelvic CT for micro hematuria revealed mild prominence of renal collecting system in the calyces bilaterally. No obstruction. Meaning?
Renal anatomy: The solid tissue of the kidney is comprised of an outer cortex and inner medulla. The blood is filtered and urine and is produced here. Urine is emptied into the collecting system, which begins at the calyces. Ultimately, the ureters transport urine to the bladder. Prominence or enlargement of the collecting system can sometimes indication obstruction to this outflow, which was not found. ...Read more
Treatment for multiple calcified densities at pelvis could represent phleboliths versus distal uretral lithiasis?
Treatment different: Phleboliths are calcified small veins that are not usually clinically important. There usually is no treatment unless associated with hemangiomas, usually in children. Calculus or stone in ureter is referred to ureterolithiasis. This can cause pain and obstruction to the ureter. The stone either passes on its own, or sometimes has instrumentation by urologist. ...Read more
No, usually...: Seeing renal vascular calcification is not uncommon and usually an incidental finding on imaging studies for other causes such as hematuria, kidney infection, stones, etc. . Of course, such patient needs to look into if having similar calcification in other arteries like aorta, since it is merely a part of systemic vascular disease. Besides, kidney function and size have to be watched and.... ...Read more
Extraspinal soft tissues demonstrates min prominence of L ovarian vein meas 6-7mm which can b seen in setting of ovarian venous incompetency.Meaning?
Possible vein reflux: Most veins have one way valves. When the heart contracts blood through these valves, but when heart is relaxes the valve closes so blood does not move backwards with gravity. The left ovarian vein connects with ovary veins around uterus. If vein is dilated it may reflect incompetence of that valve, with sluggish flow of blood through pelvis. Should talk to Dr. ordering MRI with f/u questions. ...Read more
Are muscle hernias in the leg easier to detect with ultrasound or MRI? Bulge in leg that can't be seen on MRI.

Few things: Recent surgery, prolonged immobilization, long distance traveling, cancer, and smoking cause traditional DVTs. If bilateral veins are compressed, an organ like the uterus can compress the veins but you will probably suffer from large fibroids . Blood disorders or other abnormal masses can also cause a mechanical compression at a higher location than both those veins. Emboli can reach both lungs. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
After doppler scan result varicose veins both lower limbs greater saphenous system due to incompetence of perforators of bilateral knee no thrombosis
Benign or PAD: Vascular calcifications may be benign or malignant. The calcifications may be related to peripheral arterial disease. I would suggest a initial diagnostic lower body arteriography. Sometimes vascular calcifications may be related to benign aging process. As we age, our arteries start to stiffin with fibrin and calcium deposits. This may lead to older onset hypertension and erectile dysfunction. ...Read more
Report says:partially occlusive chronic thrombosis of lef saphenous in the calf and small saphenous vein proximal and mid calf. Please explain?Thanks.
Ultrasound on kidneys and pelvic area stated prominence in right renal pelvis. Then at bottom it stated prominent renel pelvis could be developmental.
Is there a: question here....This ultrasound result can mean congenital "prominence" of this structure or a blockage (such as a renal stone) Hope this helps! Ask again with a specific question ..I assume here you want to know what the result MEANS! BE WELL Dr Z ...Read more
