EXAM: Lumbar spine radiographs, frontal, lateral, lateral flexion,
lateral extension views. Cervical spine radiographs, frontal, lateral,
lateral flexion, lateral extension views
INDICATION: Pain.
COMPARISON: 5/6/2005
FINDINGS AND IMPRESSION:
Lumbar spine. There is a mild levocurvature of the lumbar spine. There is
contrast seen within the renal collecting systems and bladder. Positive
bilateral crossover sign suggestive of possible cranial acetabular
retroversion. Borderline bilateral coxa profunda. There is no
spondylolisthesis or abnormal motion with flexion or extension. No
compression deformity. No significant disc height loss. Pronounced lumbar
lordosis.
Cervical spine. There is no compression deformity. No prevertebral soft
tissue swelling. There is 1 mm retrolisthesis of C4 on C5 seen with
extension only. No significant facet or uncovertebral degenerative
changes.
I am 27 yr old female back in October of 2012 I got pancreatitis.I was in the hospital for three weeks when I got out I vowed to get better ive been sick pretty much since ive been 18 ive had major back pain and period my body has always felt like im 80 yrs old never have any energy and have lots of pains if someone could help me figure out these mri and x rays and kinda point me in the direction I need to go in to get my life back I have a 5 year old little girl that I love more then anything but have absolutely no energy to do anything with her not to mention the pain.

Technique: CT imaging was performed of the abdomen and pelvis following
the uncomplicated administration of intravenous contrast (Isovue-300, 150
mL at 3 mL/sec). Iodinated contrast was used due to the indications for
the examination. If IV contrast material had not been administered, the
likelihood of detecting abnormalities relevant to the patient's condition
would have been substantially decreased. The most recent serum creatinine
is 0.8 mg/dL. Coronal reformatted images were generated and reviewed to
improve anatomic localization and optimize lesion detection.
Findings: The lung bases are clear. The heart is normal in size. The
liver demonstrates a nonspecific hypodensity in the lateral left lobe
(image 19, series 5) which is too small to further characterize, and is
incompletely evaluated. The gallbladder is partially contracted. The
pancreas demonstrates some lobulations of the neck (images 26-28, series
5) without a discrete mass or calcification. These two subtle lesions may
represent small pseudocysts. The spleen and adrenal glands are within
normal limits. The kidneys enhance symmetrically with contrast. The
stomach, small bowel and colon are within normal limits. There is some
heterogeneity of the uterus which may reflect underlying leiomyomas.
There is a left adnexal hypodensity, typical of a female patient of
reproductive age. The bladder is within normal limits. There is no free
fluid, free air or lymphadenopathy. The abdominal aorta and IVC are
normal in caliber. No destructive osseous lesion is identified.
