Hi ,
How are you? The findings of the CT scan of the neck and chest were unremarkable. As mentioned from the other post, it is best that you discuss the results with your doctor for proper evaluation. Factors such as your medical history, symptoms as well as results of other diagnostic tests done are important considerations also. Take care and do keep us posted.
