LIVER/SPLLEN SCAN RESULTS

THIS IS THE REPORT FROM A LIVER /SPLEEN SCAN THAT WAS A FOLLOW UP
TO A LIVER ULTRASOUND SUGGESTIVE OF MIRONODULAR CIRRHOSIS.


LIVR/SPLEEN SCAN:

HISTORY FATTY LIVER.

THERE IS MILD ENLARGEMENT OF THE LEFT LOBE OF THE LIVER.THERE ISMILD SPLENOMEGALY.
UPTAKE IN THE SPLEEN IS MILDLY INCREASED AS IT APPROXIMATES THAT OF THE LIVER ON THE POSTERIOR VIEW. NO ABNORMAL SHIFT OF RA ACTIVITY OF THE BONE MARROW IS NOTED. NO FOCAL DECREASE IN ACTIVITY IS NOTED IN THE LIVER OR SPLEEN. CURVILINEAR INCREASE IN ACTVITY IN THE SUPERIOR ASPECT OF THE LIVER ON RAO VIEW AND RIGHT LATERAL VIEW IS MOST PROBABLY RELATED TO ARTIFACT.HEPATIC UPTAKE IS REASONABLY HOMOGENOUS.

IMPRESSION:

   MILD ENLARGEMENT OF THE LEFT LOBE OF THE LIVER.
   MILD SPLENOMAGALY.
   MILD INCREASE IN UPTAKE IN THE SPLEEN AMY BE RELATED TO INCREASE IN SIZE AND/OR MILD DECREASE IN HEPATIC PARENCHYMAL FUNCTION. RECOMMEND CORRELATION WITH LABORATORY. NO FOCAL DECREASE IN ACTIVITY IS NOTED TO SUGGEST A SPACE OCCUPYING
LESION IN THE LIVER OR SPLEEN.

  ANY THOUGHTS ON THIS RESULT. MY GI HAS YET TO DO A CT SCAN OR ORDER A BIOPSY TO
  DETERMINE IF THIS IS CIRRHOSIS. HE SAYS MY LABS ARE GOOD.

i definitely would have a CT scan done.  we don't use liver-spleen scans really anymore but this interpretation COULD be consistent with cirrhosis, although not definite.
