My baby born recently and his ultrasound report shows bilateral prominent foetal renal pelvis (right 4.8mm & left 7.8 mm). What is the risk factor?

Needs followup: There is a higher risk of a urinary tract problem if the measurement is greater than 10 mm on either side. At this point the study should be repeated again after 4-6 wks and it will sometimes normalize. ...Read more

My report of USG Pelvis shows bilateral small ovarian follicles. What does it mean? And how much does these affect in getting pregnant.

Ovulation: In every normal menstrual cycle, there is development of follicles with a dominant one. The recruitment of follicles start about cycle day 2. The ovulation which occurs from the dominant follicle when it is usually more than 18mm to facilitate conception if spermatzoids are available.
Follicular development is very crucial in getting pregnant.
Good luck. ...Read more

Hsg test results impression:no spillage of contrast into the pelvis from the otherwise unremarkable-appearing bilateral fallopian tubes. What's it mean?

Hsg test results impression:no spillage of contrast into the pelvis from the otherwise unremarkable-appearing bilateral fallopian tubes. What's it mean?

Not normal: A normal hsg shows free spillage of contrast from both tubes into the peritoneal cavity. No spill means the tubes are blocked somehow. If the tubes are blocked, the egg cannot travel down the tube to be fertilized by sperm and become an embryo (and the woman becoming pregnant). ...Read more

I had a MRI done of pelvis it says I have bilateral ovarian cysts 2.7cm and 2.9 CM also shows I have a proximal iliac node 1.7 CM what should I do?

See a doctor.: Ovarian cysts are common. One single mildly enlarged pelvic lymph node is nonspecific. Your doctor may elect to follow up the cyst to see if they would resolve on their own over 2-3 menstrual cycles. They may come and go. See your doctor for check up of the rest of your body to see if there are other enlarged lymph nodes. ...Read more

My wife is 23 weeks pregnant, the ultrasound report shows bilateral prominent foetal renal pelvis (right 7mm & left 11 mm). What is the risk factor?

Mild at present: This is mild bilateral fetal hydronephrosis & 11 mm is cut-off for mild hydronephrosis. Wife's OB will be ordering further maternal/fetal ultrasounds till she delivers.

Calcified granulomas within my spleen, bilateral renal cysts, 4mm kidney stone and punctate calcifications in my pelvis, what would the underlying condition be?

Calcified granulomas within my spleen, bilateral renal cysts, 4mm kidney stone and punctate calcifications in my pelvis, what would the underlying condition be?

Mostly normal: These are all trivial imaging findings. The old stuff in your spleen probably reflects a long-ago victory over an infection with histoplasmosis. Kidney cysts are trivial and very common. The calcium stuff in your pelvis is probably phleboliths which never cause trouble. I hope the kidney stone stays in place or can be managed. ...Read more

I had an abdomen/pelvis with contrast CT and it showed in the report I had small bilateral ovarian cysts noted. Is that why my periods have been crazy?

I had an abdomen/pelvis with contrast CT and it showed in the report I had small bilateral ovarian cysts noted. Is that why my periods have been crazy?

Normal finding: Ovarian cysts are very common in women of childbearing age. Most women have ovarian cysts at some time during their lives. Each month, a follicle is formed in one ovary.
At the time of ovulation, an egg is released from the follicle. Sometimes a normal follicle keeps growing resulting in a follicular cyst. If the report does not mention polycystic ovaries, you should not be concerned. ...Read more

I had fracture pelvis near the hip joint sincr one year and till noe I have loew backache and bilateral knee joint pain what is the causes and treatme?

I had fracture pelvis near the hip joint sincr one year and till noe I have loew backache and bilateral knee joint pain what is the causes and treatme?

Pain after pelvis fx: I would suspect other injuries. You are young, and it takes a good deal of trauma to fracture a young pelvis. Proper evaluation would require xrays of the spine and pelvis at the time of injury, and likely repeat xrays now due to continued pain. You may have injured your sacrum, iliosacral ligaments, sacroiliac joints, etc. Energy that fractures the pelvis can also be transferred through knees. ...Read more

Perhaps find someone who can examine you who is expert with myofascial pain or pelvic pain. Uptake is just as likely to show stress from muscle and fascia as inflammation. ...Read more

Bilateral lithiasis left kidney measuring 11 mm in pelvic ureter junction WBC 20-25 in urine?

Bilateral lithiasis left kidney measuring 11 mm in pelvic ureter junction WBC 20-25 in urine?

Here are some...: The odd to pass a 4-mm stone through ureter to bladder in 2 weeks is about 75-85%; for a 11-mm one, its odd to pass should be next to zero. Finding 20-25wbc indicates significant inflammation most likely related with stone-related irritation to the lining of urinary tract. So, intervention at convenient time is advised as long as being tolerable and of no fever. More? Ask treating urologist timely ...Read more

Left pelvic pain, bilateral ovarian cyst R 2.8 L 2.4, Lcyst septated (CUL-DE-SAC normal. No fluid or mass)Normal Doppler and spectral limits. Meaning?

Small septated cyst: Cysts that small are frequently part of normal ovulation. A cyst is simply a fluid filled sac on the ovary. A septated cyst means that there is a tissue wall dividing the cyst into at least two parts. A small septated cyst can still be normal but sometimes the ultrasound is repeated to make sure that it goes away as most do. The other things mentioned are normal. Best Wishes! ...Read more

What causes multiple bilateral pulmonary emboli thrombosis of the pelvic veins?

What causes multiple bilateral pulmonary emboli thrombosis of the pelvic veins?

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 more

How much radiation dose am I risking with a bilateral hip and pelvic CT scan? Should mention do not know if prob is coming from hip for sure

Considerable: That's going to be considerable rad. Exposure, and a radiologist would be able to give you an exact dose.
After taking a detailed hx, one can certainly point towards a specific site and investigate that part. If multiple bones are thought to be affected, then I get a bonescan, and take it from there. Other tests are done as necessary.
See your orthopod or a pain specialist. ...Read more
