What does my CT scan test report indicate?

default
Posted on Thu, 26 May 2016
Question: I recently had a CT scan due to right flank pain and recurrent uti. I wondered if the portion under the contracts referencing a suspicious unidentified mass could be explained. Does this mean the kidney stone could not be identified on that portion of the test but it was identified without contrast or is this two separate items. A kidney stone and a suspicious mass.

Also do you see any other concerns. I am a 52 year old woman.

Brief Answer:
You have partially obstrcting stone of size of 1.2 cms in Rt Renal Pelvis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts and report of your C.T Scan that you have posted it appears that you have partially obstructing stone of a size of 1.2 cms in Rt renal pelvis .

Stones are always detected on C.T without contrast and C.T with contrast reveals details about the mass in kidney or collecting system which in your case is negative .(No mass lesion is detected ).

You need not worry at all the stone that you have can be fragmented by a procedure called Extra Corporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL).

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions , I shall be happy to help you .
Thanks and Regards.
