Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX will try to assist you with your medical question and any medical information you seek.
Would you like me to tell you what it implies or what it means
It means the biliary tree and ducts are larger than normal, and the gall bladder is larger than normal
This implies there is an obstruction within the biliary tree
if this presented with fever and elevated crp and white cells, and my liver function tests were off what could it be from? Could it have been caused by an endoscopy I had done?
Also is it related to upper pole kidney stone?
It could be caused by an ERCP, but it is unlikely to be caused by an endoscopy
It is not related to a kidney stone
It could be due to a biliary stone
I had an ultrasound done 5 months after the CT but fasted for two days before and it showed no abnormalities with liver. Does this mean the blockage is gone?
It means the obstructions is likely gone
The gallbladder was normal in the ultrasound as well
Are you there?
What are intrahepatic biliary radicles and having a prominence of them imply?
They are small structures that produce bile in the liver
Their prominence implies an obstruction
Is it possible that the ultrasound didn't see as well as CT scan?
Can you please clarify your question? I'm not exactly sure what you are asking
Should this be looked into further? Is the CT scan more accurate then ultrasound?
The CT scan is more accurate, but the accuracy depends on what they were focused on in the test, if the ultrasound was for your gall bladder, then it is more accurate
And it seems so odd to be sick feeling with night sweats and so many stones ad age 40
Nothing was a main focus. Just looking to figure out the symptoms and pain.
Okay, then the CT scan is more accurate if the ultrasound wasn't focused on the gall bladder
Is there anything else you would like to ask or need clarified on this topic?
No I think that's it. Thank you
