Could this be my problem???...or not to worry


Clinical: Headaches and fatigue with history of pituitary gland cyst.

Comparison: Comparison is made to MRI of brain dated 07/05/2011 and

Procedure: A dose of 7 mL of ProHance was injected without apparent
complications. Standard MRI sequences were performed without and with
IV contrast.


The ventricles are normal in size and position. No masses, mass
effect or midline shift identified. No abnormal extra-axial fluid
collections are seen. No acute intracranial hemorrhage identified.
There is a focal area of increased T2 and FLAIR signal in the medial
aspect of the left frontal lobe which is unchanged when compared to
the previous exam of 07/05/2011. There is a small 3 mm area of
decreased T1 and increased T2-weighted signal within the left
pituitary gland along its superior margin. This is seen on series 7
image #8 and series 12 image #8. This area does not contrast-enhance
and would be most consistent with a pituitary cyst. The pituitary
gland is not enlarged. The cerebellar tonsils are low-lying.

Impression: Stable MRI of the brain since the previous exam of
07/05/2011. No acute process seen.

But wait....there's more


Clinical: Fatigue, depression, hypothyroid. .

Comparison: None available

Procedure: Thyroid Ultrasound.

Findings: Thyroid gland is normal in size and echogenicity with the
right lobe measuring 4.5 cm x 1.1 cm x 1.3 cm and the left lobe
measuring 4.3 cm x 0.9 cm x 1.5 cm. Thyroid vascularity is normal.
At the superior pole of the right thyroid lobe there is an
ill-defined isoechoic/hypoechoic nodule that measures 4 mm in size.
No additional thyroid nodule or mass. No anterior cervical
