Hello doctor,

I would like to have an evaluation of the CT scans of the abdomen and pelvis without contrast. How can I upload the disc of the CT scan?

Please help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query and understood your concern.

I have reviewed your CT (computed tomography) scan images (the attachments were removed to protect the patient's identity).

So, I suggest the findings mentioned below.

1. There are a few calcified granulomas in both lobes of the liver. This might suggest an old liver infection and is not a serious concern.

2. There is likely a cystic lesion in the right kidney interpolate area. It needs post-intravenous contrast scan evaluation.

3. There is no radiodense calculus in the kidneys and ureters. No hydronephrosis.

4. There are few colonic diverticula. There are no features of diverticulitis.

5. There is an expansile lytic bone lesion in the right iliac bone near the right sacroiliac joint. The cortex surrounding the lesion is intact. I suggest you need an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan for detailed evaluation.

6. There is mild wall calcification of the aorta.

7. There is mild lumbar spondylosis.

I hope this has helped you.

Thanks and regards.

Hello doctor,

Thanks for your reply.

I will get the MRI done next week and I will also submit it to you for a second opinion.

Thanks and regards.
