I had a 64-slice Duel Source MDCT coronary ct scan with contrast which showed my heart to be in great condition however they found multiple nodules on my lungs during the scan. I have since seen a pulmanologist but he didn't say much other then he needed me to have another ct and that I need to try to get the actual scan and not just the report. Anyhow I am scheduled for another ct scan in Dec but until then I would like to know what these nodules likely mean. Here is what the report says.
Extra -Cardiac findings: The visulaized lungs revealed 2 discrete 4 mm nodules in the right upper lobe along the fissure, along with a 2 mm nodule in the left lower lobe along the fissure. The mediastinum is normal. The pulmonary arteries are normal. The visualized thoracic aorta is normal.
