Computed Tomography - What You Need To Know About it?

Computed Tomography - What You Need To Know About it?

What is computed tomography?

Computed Tomography is more commonly known as CT scan. It is a specialized form of X-ray. Computed Tomography is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure. CT scan provides concise images of different body parts and can also divulge any internal bleeding or injury during emergency situations. It is absolutely painless and is known to provide accurate information.

How does it work?
The patient is required to lie down on a table which is then passed through an opening, circular in structure. The radiations are rotated inside the CT scan machine for processing the images of the required body parts.

Benefits of Computed Tomography

  1. Computed Tomography helps in the identification of any benign (tumor) or malignant (cancer) growth in any part of your body.
  2. The procedure can be conducted for different body parts such as the head, abdomen, spine and chest among many others.
  3. The images provide much detailed information. It contains information regarding the condition of blood vessel, soft tissue and bones.
  4. Various bones and muscular disorders are also identified via Computed Tomography.
  5. Radiation therapy or biopsy can be carried out with the aid of Computed Tomography.

Risk factors associated with Computed Tomography

  1. If a person is allergic to Iodine (a dye used in the process), then it must be informed to the doctor beforehand to avoid further complications such as itching, nausea or vomiting.
  2. At times, kidney functions may get disrupted.
  3. The radiation emitted during CT scan is known to be harmful, especially for children.
  4. The dye used for conducting CT scan can cause allergic reaction that can be life-threatening.

At times the doctor may advise anti-allergic drugs to patients who are allergic to the dyes used in the process. CT scan is otherwise a very safe procedure for diagnosing various diseases.

Ultrasound - How it is Beneficial over Other Imaging Techniques?

Ultrasound - How it is Beneficial over Other Imaging Techniques?

Ultra sound is commonly known as sonography. It is a process of reproducing ultrasound images of soft tissues of a particular body part and other organs on the computer screen with the help of the echoes of the sound waves produced by the transducer, a high-frequency generating instrument.
Ultra sound is commonly used during the different stages of pregnancy to denote the foetal health, date of delivery, birth defects etc. However, in recent times, the ultra sound has also been associated with the diagnosis of other body parts such as the eyes, heart, gall bladder, liver, ovary, uterus, kidney, uterus, testicles, and ovaries. Ultra sound has also been useful in conducting biopsies for suspecting cancer patients, although not all of the cancers are detected by this imaging process. 3D & 4D ultrasound imaging are useful for looking at a particular body portion with much more precision and in slow motion respectively.

The advantages of ultra sound are:
1. The process of ultrasound imaging is a painless and a fast one. It does not require any insertion of needles or similar objects to denote the problems of the concerned body part.
2. The process is more convenient as compared to other similar imaging processes like MRI, mammogram and x-rays as they can capture images of the soft tissues, blood flow & cysts more clearly than the other processes.
3. The process is free of any harmful effects as there are no chances of exposure to radiation as compared to similar processes such as CT scans or X-rays. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Which diet or food is better for varicose veins patient or good blood flow in body.

DNB (Radio Diagnosis), MBBS
Radiologist, Hyderabad
Diet plays very little role in varicose veins. In general reduced salt diet may help. Stopping tobacco can also help. Walking frequently also helps the circulation in the legs as the calf muscles act like a pump in sending blood up the leg.

Does varicose vein cause inflammation and pain in legs. Or what might be the reason.

DNB (Radio Diagnosis), MBBS
Radiologist, Hyderabad
Yes indeed, Varicose veins can cause inflammation as well as pain in the legs. The venous incompetence causes increased hydrostatic pressure in the lower legs were swelling can occur. Pain will be of dragging type which increases with standing. The leakage of blood elements into the soft tissues causes fibrosis, inflammation, discolouration and ulceration.

My mother is suffering from varicose vein problem from the past few years and had done treatment in Ayurveda as well as in homeopathy, which results in recovery for a short period of time and later again back to the same stage. In her legs the veins are a little bulged and will get swollen with intense pain which finally results in a wound from which a watery kind of pus is coming. The wound is very difficult to cure which takes too many days with severe pain. It is affected on the small veins and tissues. So I request you to suggest the treatment for this type of varicose problem or from where we will get the treatment for this. Awaiting for your soon reply.

Hello, It is unfortunate that you have not had good results in treatment of your mothers varicose veins. The latest treatment is endovenous laser ablation, which is now accepted as gold standard. In any case doppler examination of the veins is a must before varicose veins can be diagnosed. If you have please gat back to me with the results and we can have a consultation.

Lower Limb Ulcer

DNB (Radio Diagnosis), MBBS
Radiologist, Hyderabad
Lower Limb Ulcer

A lower limb ulcer or a leg ulcer is characterized by the formation of a chronic sore. These sores take more than a month to heal, and tend to develop on the insides of the leg. It is characterized by symptoms of pain, swelling in the affected area and itching. The skin around the ulcer tends to harden and get discolored. A foul smelling discharge is also common.

Causes-

These sores tend to form if there is a minor injury in the leg. This tends to develop when the blood circulation inside the veins of the leg is hampered, that results in an increase in blood pressure. The high blood pressure can damage the vessels under the skin, making them fragile. The skin tends to break and form ulcers easily after a cut or a wound has been sustained.

There are certain factors that increase the risks of lower limb ulcer; them being:

  1. Obesity: Being overweight can lead to an increase in blood pressure in the leg, augmenting the risk of lower leg ulcer (learn more to reduce obesity)

  2. Varicose Veins: This disorder is characterized by swollen veins resulting from malfunctioning valves. This disorder of the veins increases the risks of lower limb ulcers.

  3. Age: Ageing increases the chances of lower leg ulcer. This is because old age and its related disorders tend to limit your movement.

Symptoms-

The symptoms of lower limb include discoloration of the skin, swollen ankles, a heavy feeling in the lower limbs, flaky and itchy skin and enlarged veins in the legs. A foul smelling discharge from the wound and high fever are common symptoms as well.

Treatment-

The treatment begins with cleaning the affected area. Medicines are applied on the area, following which the dressing is applied on the wound. In order to treat the swelling and improve the circulation in the legs, a compression bandage is also wrapped around the area. These bandages help in easing the blood circulation and relieving pain.

In order to facilitate quicker healing of the ulcer, it is recommended to remain active and ditch a sedentary lifestyle completely. It is advised to keep your leg elevated while you are sitting or lying down; this helps better the blood circulation. Avoid smoking and consuming alcohol as they inevitably slow down the healing process.

6 Advantages of Radiology

Radiology is a specialized branch of science concerned with the treatment and diagnosis of diseases through high energy radiation or X-rays. Interventional radiology also known as vascular radiology is a subspecialty of radiology. Interventional radiology involves the use of a variety of techniques for diagnosing or treating a particular disease. Some of these techniques are Ultrasound, MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and X-ray among the others.

Radiology has several advantages. Six prime advantages of Radiology are mentioned below:

  1. Radiology and Interventional radiology are sometimes completely non-invasive or less invasive methods of diagnosis and treatment. These diagnostic and treatment procedures involve the use of digital imaging or photographic images and needle insertion.
  2. Radiology is a less expensive method of treatment as compared to other surgical or medicinal treatment procedures.
  3. Blood vessel diseases like narrowing of arteries, which obstructs smooth flow of the blood, hemorrhage, blood clots and vein blockage can be easily treated with the help of radiology.
  4. Radiology can effectively treat benign or malignant tumors. It destroys the tumor in situ (original position of growth) and also counters tumors that has spread to other parts of the body due to metastasis( the process through which cancer cells spread from its original position to the other organs of the body).
  5. The procedure of radiology can also be used for inserting feeding tube into a patient's body or for the purpose of draining out fluids from the abdominal region or chest.
  6. Radiology is considered to be a popular treatment for treating different stone diseases such as kidney stones or gallstones.

All radiological procedures are conducted by or under the supervision of experienced specialists known as Radiologists.

My grandfather is suffering with varicose ulcers. He tried allopathic medical but it didn't subside. What could be the treatment for varicose leg ulcer?

DNB (Radio Diagnosis), MBBS
Radiologist, Hyderabad
Hello, Varicose ulcers are treated not by medications, but by compressive treatment which is the standard approach. Also for lasting and permanent solution laser treatment of the varicose veins can be done. Medications for varicose veins in allopathy are also there, but they may not be as effective as laser treatment. Also laser is suitable for elderly people and very safe.

I have varicose veins problem, doing surgery is safe or their will be some side effects.

DNB (Radio Diagnosis), MBBS
Radiologist, Hyderabad
Hello, Varicose veins are bulging veins in the legs cause by loss of valve function. The present trend is minimally invasive laser procedures which with ablate the offending veins. This is highly safe procedure with very few side effects. However like any other medial/surgical procedure few complications can arise including, temporary/permanent nerve damage which will result in loss of sensation, clots forming in deep veins of leg which can float to the lungs and cause pulmonary embolism are the two main complications. However these are very rare. Swelling, post operate pain and infection are other potential side effects, which can easily be tackled.

I am suffering from Varicose veins problem from last many years I have done one laser surgery with Dr. Padariya at jaslock Hospital But same problems repeat again Please suggest me some proper doctor.

DNB (Radio Diagnosis), MBBS
Radiologist, Hyderabad
Hello, It is unfortunate that you are suffering from recurrent varicose veins. Although laser procedure is very successful (more than 97% success rate), sometimes the varicose veins can recur. The reasons for recurrence is 1. Other veins in the leg may develop varicosities apart from the treated vein 2. Recanalization of the ablated vein 3. Unusual anatomy, such as accessory veins which may be missed during doppler testing. It is thus important to get a detailed doppler mapping of the veins before treatment. In my clinic I perform doppler as well as laser myself.

I undergone medical fitness test for my profession doctor said You have varicose vein ? What is the symptoms for that and how to treat that without any operation ?

DNB (Radio Diagnosis), MBBS
Radiologist, Hyderabad
Hello, It is unfortunate that you have been diagnosed with varicose veins. However this is a very common problem and can be tackled. The veins in the leg get dilated because of valves not working properly. This causes venous pressure in the leg to build up. Over time there will be dragging pain, skin changes, bulging of the leg, lipodermatosclerosis (Bottle shaped leg with hard fibrous tissue formation) and ulcer formation. Not everyone with varicose veins develop these symptoms however. Rarely clots can develop within the veins. You could go to a good specialist in chennai for the same to know your options.

I suffered from varicose veins in last trimester of my pregnancy. They were visible and protruding on both of my legs due to which I suffered from restless legs And after delivery they subsidised. Its been only 6 months since birth of my baby but of late I can see those spider veins again in legs becoming black they have not protruded yet. But due to them I am unable to stand for sometime. I have tried stocking but did not find them of much use. Is there any treatment available except surgery.

DNB (Radio Diagnosis), MBBS
Radiologist, Hyderabad
Laser treatment is a minimally invasive procedure which is an alternative to traditional surgery. The procedure involves inserting a small tube into the veins and closing them with laser energy. It is highly acceptable and safe alternative. You could get back home immediately after the procedure. You are intact encouraged to be active after the procedure. Do consider it and get back to me if you need details.

I have varicose veins and my delivery date is 06/09/2016 so is there any risk of my life in this situation please help.

DNB (Radio Diagnosis), MBBS
Radiologist, Hyderabad
Hello, varicose veins appearing in the legs is common in pregnancy. There reasons include 1. Increased fluid in the body because of the pregnancy, 2. Pressure from the large uterus on the pelvic veins 3. Hormones which cause the veins to relax. As you can see all these are due to the normal physiological process of pregnancy. They usually disappear after pregnancy within three months. Sometimes the varicose veins may cause pain in the legs. You can do the following to reduce the symptoms 1. Avoid sitting or standing in the same position for long periods of time. Make sure to take breaks to change your position. During awake hours walk for 5 minutes every hour. 2. Avoid wearing high heels. 3. Get regular exercise. Talk with your gynaecologist to confirm if it is safe for you to exercise during pregnancy. 4. Wear maternity support hosiery. These put pressure on the legs, stimulating blood flow up the leg towards the heart. However, avoid wearing tight hose that cut off circulation. 5. Avoid crossing your legs while sitting. 6. Elevate your legs periodically to improve circulation. 6. Sleep on your left side. This will help relieve pressure on the inferior vena cava. 7. Reduce salt intake. 8. Drink plenty of water and eat enough fiber to prevent constipation. There is usually no risk to life due to varicose veins. However another condition of the veins is there, which is very rare, and this is clots developing in the leg veins - this can be recognised by swelling of the legs, redness and severe pain, and can be diagnosed with colour doppler test. The clots in the vein can dislodge and go to the lungs and can cause a condition called pulmonary embolism which is very dangerous and life threatening. You can prevent this also with the points listed above. Regards,

Is varicose veins hereditary. My brother had them on legs. Already he had them in bulged visible condition. What happens if we neglect them.

DNB (Radio Diagnosis), MBBS
Radiologist, Hyderabad
Hello, there are many causes of varicose veins. Many times several factors add up to cause and increase varicose veins. Causes include heredity, obesity, standing position jobs, lack of mobility, and previous leg vein clots (deep venous thrombosis). The main cause is loss of valve function in the veins which allows the blood to pool in the leg veins. The patient may get pain, heaviness, dragging sensation. If left, visible bulging can occur as you have stated. In many cases, because of pooling of blood and increased venous tension, we can get swelling of legs, blackish colouration, and ulcer formation.

On 2nd of July 2016 I had radio frequency ablation for varicose veins with injection sclerotherapy. My question is how much time will it take for my veins to get disappeared. Now I am seeing almost 70% enlarged veins but they are hard how much time for the Complete disappearance.

DNB (Radio Diagnosis), MBBS
Radiologist, Hyderabad
After varicose vein rfa and sclerotherapy it can take up to 3-6 months or longer for the enlarged veins to disappear. Ulcers usually heal quickly if you have them! the veins becoming hard is evidence that they have closed. The hard veins will become like ropes and slowly disappear.

Hello lybrate-user, it is unfortunate that you are suffering from varicose veins. There are a number of options available for treating - surgery, sclerotherapy, lasers etc. If you are not keen on these treatments you can opt for stockings. In market there are two types of stockings - one which we get in most medical stores are called support stockings - they do not give sufficient compression for varicose veins. The other is usually available in surgical stores. They are called class ii compression stockings. These class ii stockings are usually prescribed if your arteries are fine. They provide up to 30mmhg pressure at ankle level which will prevent symptoms of varicose veins and also prevent complications. The stockings are available in thigh length and knee length. More than the brand the size of the stockings are important. Please make sure that the size is appropriate for you. Cotton stockings are more comfortable - but little bit more costly than synthetic ones. Hope this helps you.

Varicose veins can cause pain, swelling and ulcer formation. Wearing compression stockings where applicable can reduce the pain and other symptoms to a certain extent. Surgery is an option. Endogenous laser treatment is the latest and safe treatment alternative. There are no home remedies as such.

There are no specific creams to treat'varicose veins' however some of the symptoms of varicose veins include stasis eczema which can cause itching. These can be treated with a short course of medicated steroid creams. Please note that the varicose veins themselves will not disappear. It is only the itching which will reduce. Varicose veins can be treated safely with endogenous laser treatment.
