Can someone help me understand these. I went for a CT scan of my neck lymph nodes:
STUDY: CT SOFT TISSUE NECK W CONTRAST
1. No sialolithiasis.
2. Scattered probable reactive cervical nodes, without clear pathologic enlargement or other suspicious features.
INDICATION: LAD lymphadenopathy, Sialoithiasis, please fax resulst to 402-778-5216, please give pt a disk Review pregnancy status, order entered from written source not with office staff or patient.
COMPARISON: Limited comparison to CT head 6/27/2017
TECHNIQUE: CT soft tissue neck routine protocol with 100 mL IsoVue 370 administered intravenously.
Minimal sinus mucosal thickening is typically incidental, particularly in the absence of specific clinical concern.
No suspicious osseous lesions.
Left pulmonary and hilar calcifications most likely are sequela of previous granulomatous inflammation.
Visualized cranium is unremarkable. Otomastoid air cells are clear.
No abnormal parotid, submandibular or sublingual calcification, mass, ductal ectasia or calculi, nor adjacent inflammatory induration or swelling.
Scattered small and tiny cervical nodes are somewhat numerous, though with benign size and morphology, most likely reactive in the absence of other specific clinical concern.
Muscular, vascular and glandular structures of the neck are otherwise unremarkable. A punctate right paramedian lingual tonsilloliths is typically incidental.
