Bill Posted April 6, 2005 Share Posted April 6, 2005 For comparison, here's what the 3/28/05 PET reported ( lung portion only ) : FINDINGS : There is a focus of moderately intense hypermetabolic activity in the left upper lobe of the lung. This measures approximately 1.4 cm. and demonstrates standard uptake value of 2.4, borderline for malignancy. This could represent partial response to therapy. ( Note : primary tumor was measured at 2.6 cm. per 1/20/05 CT scan ). There is no evidence of other hypermetabolic foci in the lungs, but they may be too small to visualize. IMPRESSION : Solitary focus in the left upper lobe, probably partially treated malignancy. Here's what the 4/4/05 Chest CT reported : FINDINGS : Spiculated mass, left upper lobe, seen measuring 22 mm., axial image # 15. Very small nodules are seen in the lungs diffusely. These have undergone significant interval diminution in size compared with the CT exam from 1/20/05. No evidence of mediastinal or hilar adenopathy. Thoracic fixation rods and interposition graft are again seen. IMPRESSION : Spiculated mass, left upper lobe, measuring 22 mm. Small nodules seen diffusely throughout the lungs in the 1 - 2 mm. range. Significant interval diminution in size compared with the 1/20/05 exam. No clear-cut mediastinal or hilar adenopathy. No evidence for axillary or supraclavicular adenopathy. No evidence of pericardial effusion. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
