Explanation Of CT Scan Results?
Hello doctor, I want to ask you about the results of my father’s CT scan. No visible pathological hyperdense lesions in the cerebral parenchyma, a herniation of some of the brain’s parenchyma through a defect in the os ocipital, cortical sulcus and left sylvious fissure appear normal, differentiation of the alba and grisea substantia appears well, left and right lateral ventricles, iii, and IV appear normal, physiological classification of left and right basal ganglia, left and right plexus choroideus and pineal gland, non-narrowing perimesencephalic cisterna, no visible midline shifting, good pons and cerebellum, no visible gloom in the pineal gland, sinus paranasalisKESAN: not visible intracranial bleeding, herniation of a portion of the brain parenchyma through defects in the os ocipital – u0026gt; malignancy ?? , no visible signs of increased intracranial pressure, no visible hematosinus What should be the next action and the danger of ct scan results above? And what are the risks of further action?
Hello. Good night. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
CT-Scan results are the results of investigations which means that additional tests are outside of the anamensis about the symptoms felt and physical examination carried out by doctors where in most conditions anamensis and physical examination directs about 70 percent toward the diagnosis while supporting tests around 30 percent . In this case information should also be conveyed about the symptoms experienced by the patient and if an examination has been carried out by a doctor can also convey what the doctor suspected,
Head CT scan is mainly performed on patients with nerve problems in the face, body, or extremities. Where the most common thing is caused by a stroke. The main CT scan is to distinguish whether in the direction of bleeding (white on photo / hyperdense) which indicates the stroke hemorrhage. Hemorrhagic stroke is a state of paralysis that occurs due to rupture of blood vessels in the brain, because of the rupture there is a part of the brain that does not receive oxygen and nutrients. This is related to several risk factors that occur such as high blood pressure, increased pressure on the brain area, severe head injury, brain blood vessel disorders. Symptoms experienced are severe headache, nausea, vomiting, decreased consciousness, convulsions, paralysis on one side of the body, damage to facial nerves such as difficulty speaking, difficulty swallowing, impaired vision.
Whereas brain herniation is a condition when brain tissue and cerebrospinal fluid shift from its normal position. Some of the symptoms felt are dizziness, headaches, high blood pressure, seizures, body weakness, and heaviest are comatose conditions. This is usually triggered by several things, namely trauma, bleeding in the brain, brain infection, or brain tumor. If you experience this it is better to do further examination to a neurologist so that treatment can be done there is a herniation of the brain optimally, i.e.
- Surgery to remove tumors, blood clots, or piles of infection fluid
- Reduces pressure in the brain by administering hypertonic fluids such as mannitol
- Administration of drugs according to symptoms such as anticonvulsants, steroids.
So that we can say hopefully useful thanks
