What Is Meaning Lumen Contains Multiple Calculi
Please explain: renal cortex contains 29 glomeruli, 13 of which
are globally sclerosed. There is focal segmental mesangial
Sclerosis: So Glomeruli are Filteration units of Kidney. Since kidney's main function is Filteration; the health of glome is directly related to renal function. Sclerosis in layman term means scarring. So 13/29 glomes are scarred. Which means approximately 50% of functional units are scarred or non functional. Mesengial hypercellularity refers to the inflammation in the kidney. Very common with FSGS ...Read more
Gallbladder is contracted and contain multiple echogenic calculi.The common bile duct is 4mm and no filling defect is seen.Please advice me.
Do You Have Pain?: The presence of gallstones in the absence of symptoms does not warrant gallbladder surgery. In fact, most people with "silent" gallstones will never develop symptoms, as high as 75% of the time. I advise my patients to be familiar with the symptoms of gallbladder disease and return if these develop. While surgery is safe and easy, it is not risk-free. ...Read more
Ultrasound: there is a large complex cyst vs.2 cysts seen in the general region of the left hepatic lobe measures 6.2 CM is non vascular what is it?
Can't Tell: Most liver cysts are harmless. Some can be the result of parasitic infection or previous injury. Rarely, they can be related to tumors. Your cyst may need to be aspirated and the fluid analyzed for further evaluation. ...Read more
What does this means markedly dilated elongated left fallopian tube contains subacute stage blood products suggestive of hematosalpinx?
Hypoechoic mass intrmural and solid is dangerous in posterior wall of uterus? is here need of test CA125?
Criss-crossed: All true cysts are abnormal, epithelially-lined, closed, fluid-filled structures. Some are tumors, some are developmental problems, some have other causes. If there are multiple echoes, the cyst is crisscrossed by sometime, perhaps sheets that may make it harder to aspirate the contents all at once; it may be a group of many little cysts. ...Read more
Please interpret chd-cbd and cystic duct stump wall thickening is most probably of neoplastic etiology. Possibility of it being chronic is less likely
What is the meaning of " liver is normal size with homogeneous parenchyma. Nofocal mass is seen."?
That is good news..: Normal size is good. Homogenous=all areas look similar. Parenchyma here just mean the liver tissue itself. No focal mass means no mass is seen in any area. All of these are just fancy words telling you that you have a normal liver based on the ultrasound findings. So, this is actually good news. Consult doc and good luck. ...Read more
What does "very hypoechoic nodules with increased vascularity" mean? Is that indicative of cancer? Nodules are not 1cm.The larger one is 0.40cm x 19cm
Nodule: Hypoechoic generally means that the lesion is more likely to be cystic (contains fluid), however, increased vascularity is concerning. depending on the history, location and presence of other symptoms fine needle aspiration for cytological analysis or a biopsy should be considered. Watch for alternative points of view from other physicians ...Read more
What does it mean "the left fallopian tube is patent. However it demonstrates contained spillage of contrast"?
Tube open, : & some of the liquid (which absorbs X-rays; i.e. contrast) which exited the egg entry end of the tube remained within a limited "contained" space of the abdominal cavity instead of more diffusely spreading into a larger space. Containment implies some scar tissue around the fallopian tube preventing contrast diffusion, not optimal. Look up for hysterosalpingogram using Google & Google images. ...Read more
Descriptive term: Not specific to any one thing. Parenchyma is just the main part of an organ or tissue. Echogenicity refers to how many echoes are produced by a tissue. It just means more than expected echoes form whatever is being examined. I can't take this any farther without more information. ...Read more
CT indicates that portions of the left ureter are not opacified, but no evidence of dilation or obstructing mass. Serious?
Subtle hyperechoic foci in both kidneys, probably renal calculi. Left renal cyst measured 17mm. There is no hydronephrosis or other masses. What does this kidney ultrasound mean?
no cancer: Renal cysts are very common and nothing to worry about. The subtle hyperechoic foci probably represent tiny kidney stones which may grow over time. No hydronephrosis means no evidence of something obstructing the flow of urine to your bladder. No masses means just that. Please see your doctor to review this report as well as current laboratory tests of your kidney function. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
That is the: normal appearance of the fasting gallbladder, as long as it is not enlarged. ...Read more
It sounds like...: .. you are quoting an imaging report. These words essentially mean "scar." The most common cause of myocardial/heart scar is occlusion of a blood vessel supplying that part of the heart..a heart attack. Ongoing ischemia (lack of blood supply) of heart muscle, heart enlargement or dilation and perhaps hypertension are associated with fibrosis, too. Your cardiologist will explain and advise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
