Procedure Ordered : FCT ABDOMEN WO CONTRAST , FCT PELVIS WO CONTRAST
Admitting DX : RT SIDE PAIN
Working DX : RT SIDE PAIN
CT ABDOMEN AND PELVIS WO CONTRAST
INDICATION : Evaluation with right sided-pain, possible stones. Multiple helical images were performed from the base of the lungs to the proximal third of the femurs without IV or oral contrast administration. There is a small to moderate sized pericardial effusion. There are mild basilar infiltrates. The liver is diffusely increased in the attenuation probably consistent with iorn supplement. There is mild hydronephrosis of the right ureter, which is difficult to trace in the pelvis. This could suggest a small stone on the side distally. Trace amount of fluid seen in the pelvis.
1. Small to moderate sized pericardial effusion.
2. Bilateral lower lobe infilrates.
3. Diverticulosis without evidence of actual diverculitis.
4. Mild right hydronephrosis without clear visualization of the distal right ureter. There could be a proximal small ureteral calculus on the right side that is not wellvisualized.
5. Trace amount of ascites.
6. Increased attenuation of the liver that could be consistent with iorn supplement.

1. Uncontrolled hypertension with fluctuations.
2. Long-standing diabetes.
Will do a workup for secondary hypertension due to fluctuating blood pressures. Check urinalysis for protein and microalbumin due to history of diabetes. Will check a 24-hour urine for metanephrines, normetanephrines, and VMA. Check serum aldosterone, ACTH, cortisol, renin, TSH, metanephrines, and sed rate. Advised the patient to keep log of his blood pressure readings during __________ . I will see him back in about three to four weeks' time with results.
Thanks for the consultation. Will follow the patient with you.
