What Does Low Attenuation Lesion On Thyroid Mean
"Incidental low attenuation lesion" found in kidney. 7mm in size. What does "low attenuation" mean?
Low attenuation: Means it absorbs less xrays. Usually this means that it is something less dense than adjacent tissue. For example, a fluid filled structure (such as a cyst) has lower attenuation than a solid mass. In the kidney, an incidental low attenuation lesion usually indicates a benign cyst. This can be confirmed with an ultrasound. ...Read more
What does it mean if my pet-ct scan revealed numerous low-attenuation lesions in the liver that are of fluid density consistent with cysts?
Sounds: Like you have simple cysts in the liver which are benign. ...Read more
Several causes: Can be a cyst or several possibilities; best to check with your doctor or see a nephrologist. ...Read more

55 yr old female with a cardiac radiology report that there are multiple low-attenuation hepatic lesions noted most suggestive of cysts.
Cysts in liver: Cysts in the liver are usually benign. Your doctor will probably want to repeat the scans on the liver in a few months to make sure they are stable. ...Read more
What does it mean if my CAT scan report reads, "There is a subcentimeter low attenuation mid right renal parenchymal abnormality..."?
Missing words: That you are editing or not providing the full report's words. Those words are meaningless without the rest of the report. ...Read more
What does 'prominent soft tissue density in the cervical region demonstrating low attenuation on post-contrast imaging' mean on a pelvic CT report?
Had ct w/contrast. It said low attenuation throughout the hepatic parenchyma of the liver what does that mean?
Probably fatty liver:
Vs. Poor scan quality (in opinion of the physician dictating the interpretation). Look up: https://www. Google. Com/#q=low%20attenuation%20hepatic%20parenchyma & http://radiopaedia.

I'm only 58 and my ct scan showed multiple zones of low attenuation commonly seen in the setting of a moderate degree of chronic microvascular degener?
Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, this is a vascular problem. Lowering risks:
check cholesterol and diabetes
possibly statin and / or baby aspirin anyway
depending on the details it migh tnot be vascular and could be toher diseases such as early alzheimers. These are the best we have for prevention, there are some drugs to treat also. ...Read more
My CT shows a 9.5 CM left hilar node with a low attenuation center. Report adds No mediastinal adenopathy is seen. Could you explain probable meaning?
Hard to tell...: ..without more information. It is good they did not see a lung mass or enlarged nodes in the mediastinum (the space between the lungs), but a 9 cm. Hilar node (the area where the blood vessels enter the lung) is pretty big. A scan is usually done with a specific purpose so I suggest you talk to the physician who ordered it and discuss its implications and what's next for U. Hope it's nothing bad. ...Read more
I recently had a CT scan. They found that I had bilateral low attenuation adnexal masses. What should I do?
CT chest: You need to discuss with your physician. I am sure they will discuss this with you. Modules can be anything from being benign to cancerous. Unless the CT is put in a clinical context, it is difficult to answer this question with certainty. ...Read more
What does 'diffuse severe attenuation of the left vertebral artery" mean on a neck ct scan with contrast?
Risk of stroke: Depending on age and other risks, this could be caused by arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), certain autoimmune diseases associated with arterial inflammation (arteritis), certain infections (e.g. syphilis), and other conditions. Whatever the cause, the person with this finding may be at high risk for stroke. Discuss with your doctor without delay. ...Read more
Ct scan abd/pelvis, can it be melanoma (had melanoma), what should be done? Mild-low attenuation/left arnexal region likely related to ovarian cyst.
What does 'diffuse severe attenuation of the left vertebral artery" mean on a neck ct scan with contrast? Could it be cause of previous spontaneous arterial brachial clot or subclavian clot?
Ct w/contrast. Low attenuation throughout the hepatic parenchyma. Blood is ALKP 90 ALT 45 AST 28 CRP 1.7. Do I have liver cancer?
Not the right tests: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the tests you reported on are not correct ones for diagnosing liver cancer. Serum alpha feto protein level may help. From the info you provided, it is unlikely that you have liver cancer. ...Read more
Hx severe asthma. Multiple lung nodules/densities found, all < 5mm and throughout lungs. Two 1cm thyroid nodules found one dense calcification, one intermediate attenuation. Only CT. Wondering if primary thyroid CA with lung mets. Weeks 2 see dr?
Yes, see doctor: It is difficult to say on this evidence if the lung lesions are benign. They may be. The only way to know for sure is abiopsy. I would strongly recommend seeing an endocrinologist. ...Read more

Wow- a lot!: This can either be as simple as muscular if you have had any changes in excercise or even trauma (fall, seizure). Or it can be neurological, neuropathic pain due to your comorbidities or even the brain lesion. Or vascular such as a DVT or blood clot in your veins. I would recommend that you get evaluated at your earliest convenience. ...Read more

I had a CT scan of my neck and the one result I just don't understand. It reads as follows "lymph nodes present which is homogeneous in attenuation an?
Looks like your: Question got cut off. "Homogeneous attenuation" essentially means that there is uniform density of the structure. Normal or abnormal lymph nodes can have homogeneous attenuation, so that characteristic by itself doesn't determine whether the node is abnormal. ...Read more
Post hysterectomy 3 weeks. Post surgery CT scan: Left adnexal cystic lesion with low-attenuation measuring 4.0 x 3.7 CM. Impression: Cystic left ovarian lesion measuring 3.2 x 4.1 cm. What does this mean?
Had Abdominal CT that stated, "Incidental low attenuation lesion in left kidney." ER doctor said most likely a cyst. Terrified...What does this mean?
Probably a cyst: Simple cysts in the kidney are common and usually no cause for concern. They are benign and cause no problems health wise. Cysts do not become cancers. If there is any doubt about the diagnosis, a renal ultrasound is the best study to confirm the presence of a cyst. ...Read more

Done an sgpt test and it says on the result that mine is 66 (ref: 9.00-52 u/l (h). Do I need to worry? I am drinking ptu (propylthiouracil) for my thyroidism continuously
PTU (propylthiouracil) and liver: Drugs like ptu (propylthiouracil) and Methimazole can cause liver toxicity but hyperthyroidism can also cause elevation int the liver enzyme test you had done. If your still early in your treatment and your thyroid hormone levels (free t4) is still high it could be that. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Thyroid Hormone and Function studies can get complicated depending on the background of the Discussants. The Labs also. For simplification: Hyper- Thyroidism is when the Thyroxine Level is High and the TSH is Low. -
And Hypo- Thyroidism is when TSH is Higher than Normal ranges. Using Globalrph: Thyroxine (Free T4) Normal Range = 0.8-2.8ng/dL
-TSH Normal Range = 0.5-4.7uU/ml ...Read more
