Contrast Head CT Scan Results?
Good evening doctor, r n r nI would like to ask about the CT scan results below, whether this condition has improved. R n There was a hypodense lesion in the area of the right basal ganglia u0026amp; left temporal stinging contrast after contrast administration. r nVerical III, IV and normal lateral, no visible perifocal odem. r nThe brain stem and cerebellum are normal r nThe bones are intact, no fracture line is visible
The CT-Scan examination is one of the doctors' supports in obtaining the information needed to find out a person's medical condition, but doctors are not only fixated on the results of the CT-Scan examination but doctors also need to compare the findings of the CT-Scan examination with clinical symptoms and also physical examination and other supporting examinations.
Contrast CT-Scan examination aims to see blood flow and the presence of bleeding much more clearly than an examination without contrast. So that if there is a hypodense image on examination with contrast it can be interpreted as a location that appears that the hypodense does not get blood flow properly, otherwise this can occur due to the presence of air / empty space or the presence of a mass (an object, can be a tumor, cyst, clot). blood, etc.)
Meanwhile, other descriptions on the examination are still in a reasonable impression. It is difficult to know whether Norvianda's current situation has improved or not because you do not know your previous medical history, besides that, someone's health development to be declared to be getting better or worse needs to be assessed holistically (thoroughly), because as I said before we can't just stick to the CT scan results. For this reason Norvianda is expected to consult again with the doctor who has treated you, so that you can compare your current condition with previous conditions and carry out a medical assessment again.
