Had my US done in 8-2012. The US Final report stated that the liver was MILDLY hetergeneous echogencity. A liver cyst with small indentations. No acites (ascites). Spleen normal sized. Kidneys normal that can be visualized. GB normal..pancreas normal.
BUT .. I had to get a CD made for the hep I will be seeing in April and was looking thru that cause I wanted to see the size of the cyst. Came across the Loosy report which is the worksheet the dr reading the US jots down the info from his reading of the US.
His report states: DIFFUSELY hetergeneous liver (fatty liver is circled)... COMPLRX CYST 2.3 x 2.1 x 2.1
Aorta P - 2.3 cm
SPLEEN ENLARGED - 13.8 x 4.8 x 4.9 US didnt state this and said it was normal..
Also US stated no acites (ascites) but the bottom of the report doesnt have it marked
AND has FLUID COLLECTION (either wrote VS or IS) artifact midline. 12.0 x 8.9 x 4.5 cm.
AND the worksheet states that there is dilated duct(s) at pancreas head. ???? Nothing else noted.Is this a concern?
So..the two reports dont match. There are some discrepancies.
Anyone know much about what the dr who read the report is seeing? Somehow the same thing didnt get translated on the Final US Report.
I called the gastro and told him I was going to come in with the cd. .
Thank you. took the cd to my pcp and came back into the room..said that diffuse is same as mild. The panceatic edema is from the cyst...complex. That the spleen is normal at 13.8. He is not sure if i have acites (ascites) since it could be the artifact midline...and not fluid collection..that was questionable. I am going to get another US next week to see if the cyst has grown.....so that is good. Hope it stays stable. I'm sure I will be getting a CT scan soon when I see my new hep at CC.
Thank you for taking the time to talk to me and to others who have so many questions, no answers, maybe no insurance and are very scared. We all apprecuate having you and those on the cirrhosis forum to speak to.
