I'm hoping someone can help me...I've been experiencing pain under my ribs and I had a CT scan w/ contrast to dx the prob.
The 1st scan showed a low attenuation lesion in the left hepatic lobe, so I just had a 2nd scan and this showed a 6mm hypodense lesion and suggests I get an MRI. There is, also some indication on the 2nd CT that I have pneumonia/pneumonitis, It says the lung bases show groundglass opacities which are non specific, consider pneumonia or pneumonitis...I'm worried because when I called my doc for the results, his nurse said that he wouldn't discuss the results over the phone and she offered me to come in or have the MRI and then see him. The only reason I know the results is because I asked the CT facilty to give me the report. The nurse didn't mention anything other then to say there were some, "findings" on the CT that need to be looked into further and an MRI is needed.
So, I don't know what to think...If I have pneumonia, I would think they would have wanted me to get on antibiotics, but she never said anything about the results.
What is a hypodense lesion? What is a low attenuation lesion?
