I am Dr Ken. I am a radiologist and see many CT scans daily.
I would be happy to help you.
Kindly let me know the query.
I am confussed as-
1. On new report it says new adrenal left gland nodule ( but old report already had that so how is it new ?) that was classed as not being a met previously .
2. New report -Upper lobe nodule remains unchanged but on old report there was no mention of a upper lobe nodule.
Ok. Can I just ask that in a ct scan in person with colon cancer , y would rafiologist say nodules but no measurements given ?
We were told last time that the adrenal node was not a
met, so I don't know if this the Same one as it says "new ".
Would there b any reason y measurements 2 nodules are not stated ?
I'm thinking the same too .I may n doing guess work here but in the old report , he mentions the liver met and node sizes and says suspicious of metasates and was confirmed by a pet anyway .
bit this time he mentions the size increase in both but no size of the nodules and neither does he say suspicious of mets
But at end of report he does say ... Disease progression so I'm confussed
What do u think , can nodules that are mets be stated without sizes?
Do u think these nodules are benign then ? But it is stated as disease progression
There was a typo error Apparantly there was 1 previous liver met only we were told . What about the sub pleural nodule which again has no measurement ?
could the radiologist have left the measurements
mdt team to see from images ?
Can they still be mets and measurements r not stated?
I see. Is it cuz the nodule is in the sub pleural there is no measuremeNt?
