this drives me bonkers…

"upper left quadrant"?

"lodged in the spine"?


not even close, dick (wolf).

ugh. Hollywood needs me.

myradfindings:

breast cancer initially detected on a nuclear cardiac stress test. radiotracer activity was noted in the medial left breast.

mammograms & breast ultrasound showed large mass, axillary lymphadenopathy, & skin thickening.

#TBT to a breast cancer presentation you don’t see everyday

myradfindings:

elderly woman with vaginal discharge. fluid filled uterus with air-fluid level. contrast in urinary bladder. cultures positive for enterococcus faecalis.

intrauterine abscess

The skeleton of a sufferer of fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP)
Descriptions of medical cases in which people have apparently turned slowly to stone have been recorded since the 19th century; it is possible that some of these cases may be founded in reality. This “stone man syndrome” occurs due to an exceptionally rare genetic disorder causing damaged connective tissue to essentially transmute into bone due to a corruption of the normal repair process. This can often cause the paralysis of joints and ultimately the entire skeleton, as seen here. Curiously (yet terrifyingly) the disease does not immobilize the heart, eyes, smooth muscle or diaphragm, allowing these organs to sustain life and the senses even as the rest of the body is frozen in place.

myradfindings:

colonic adenocarcinoma at rectosigmoid junction resulting in proximal obstruction.

myradfindings:

abnormal mediastinal contour on the chest x-ray proved to be osteomyelitis/discitis in the mid-thoracic spine.

you know the bone metastases are bad when you see them on a KUB 😢
