Ok I probably shouldne even be attempting to figure out radiologist talk but I am scared. Yesterday for the first time I read ALL the reports from my CT scans. And it freaked me out even more.
It says how they believe its a AVM of the lung but it doesnt present as a typical lung AVM, its"unusual" and heres the part that confuses me...
The exact words are actually this....(and underlined is what really gets me)
"Serpiginous nodular density in the right lower lobe anteromedially
extending into the paraspinal area probably represents a small unusual
vascular malformation. This does not have the appearance of a typical
pulmonary AVM on these limited images, contrast enhanced CT scan of
the chest has been recommended."
I then got a CT with contrast though and it stated..
"Tubular enhancing structure in a right lower lobe medially probably
reflects a vascular malformation."
But the underlined is what confuses me... I am trying to figure out how it extends to paraspinal area???
Does this mean i could have some form of a spinal avm too???? Of maybe I shouldnt think of that part anymore because that result wastheCT without contrast?
Anyone have any idea? any at all? I've been trying to lookuo anatomy between the lung and "para spinal area" and havent found much.. so maybe someone with more anatomy experience would have a clue...?
I am going to be crazy until my appointment on April 5th :(
Thanks again everyone,
