Flyman35 Posted May 5, 2008 Share Posted May 5, 2008 EXAM: CT SCAN OF THE LUNGS: Indication: Follow-up lung carcinoma. Comparison: 3/20/08 Technique: CT scanning through the chest was performed in the axial plane after the infusion of intravenous contrast. Findings: CT scanning of the chest again demonstrates a right inferior hilar mass consistent with the history of lung carcinoma. This mass encircles the right lower lobe pulmonary artery and right lower lobe bronchus. The mass continues to decrease in size as compared to previous examination. specifically the mass previously measured approximately 5.0 x 4.5 cm. The lesion now measures 4.4 x 3.5 cm and demonstrates central cavitation. No new lesions are indentified within the lungs. Post inflammatory changes are noted in both lungs. There are emphysematous bullae noted in both upper lobes consistent with underlying chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Postsurgical changes are noted in the mediastinum. The appearance of the diastinum is unchanged as compared to previous. There are several less than 1 cm precarinal lymph nodes noted. Subcarinal lymph node which measured approximately 1.5 cm in size has decreased in size and now measures approximately 0.3 cm. Previously noted lesion in the dome of the liver which measured approximately 1.2 cm in size is not appreciated on the present examination. Visualized portions of the upper abdomen are otherwise unremarkable. There are degenerative changes noted in the thoracic spine. WOO HOO!!! I'LL TAKE THAT ANY DAY!!!
