    Unhappy Ultrasound Results?!?!?!?


    ABDOMEN ULTRASOUND

    CLINICAL HISTORY:
    RIGHT UPPER QUADRANT PAIN

    FINDINGS:
    SONOGRAPHIC EVALUATION OF THE ABDOMEN WAS PREFORMED AND IS COMPARED TO THE PRIOR EXAMINATION ON 02/01/02
    INCREASED ECHOGENICITY OF THE HEPATIC PARENCHYMA SUGGESTS A MILD TO MODERATE DEGREE OF DIFFUSE FATTY INFILTRATION. FOCAL SPARING IS SEEN IN THE REGION ADJACENT TO THE GALLBLADDER FOSSA. NO DEFINITE FOCAL HEPATIC MASS OR LESION IS SEEN, AND THE LIVER IS OTHERWISE HOMOGENEOUS AND UNREMARKABLE IN APPEARANCE. THE GALLBLADDER IS NORMAL IN APPEARANCE AND IS FREE OF STONES. NO INTRA- OR EXAHEPATIC BILE DUCT DILATION IS SEEN. THE PANCREAS, SPLEEN, KIDNEYS, AORTA, AND IVC ARE UNREMARKABLE IN APPEARANCE. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF SPLENOMEGALY.

    IMPRESSION:
    1. MILD TO MODERATE DIFFUSE FATTY INFILTRATION OF THE LIVER. FOCAL SPARING IS SEEN IN THE REGION OF THE GALLBLADDER FOSSA. THE LIVER IS OTHERWISE HOMOGENEOUS AND UNREMARKABLE IN APPEARANCE. NO EVIDENCE OF SHOLELITHIASIS OR BILE DUCT DIALATION. REMAINDER OF THE EXAMINATION IS OTHERWISE UNREMARKABLE. NO EVIDENCE OF SPLENOMEGALY.

    If anyone can desifer this I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thanks so much,
    Emily

    Hi Emily - I'm no doctor so cannot completely understand your results. I could make a guess, but I would prefer that you talk to your doctor. He's the one with the medical knowledge about all this technical jargon.

    Good luck,
    Katie G

    Talking

    Basically, this is saying that you have what is commonly referred to as a fatty liver.
