Pictures never lie--right?

Patient name: Ogle, Peter
Exam date: 03/09/2009
Procedure: CT of the thorax with contrast.
Indication: History of melanoma. Evaluate pulmonary nodule.
Comparison: 12/01/2008
Technique: Helical axial scanning was performed from the thoracic inlet to the upper abdomen after bolus intravenous administration of 50 mL Isovue 300 IV contrast used without incident.
Findings: The previously described pulmonary nodule at the right upper lobe posterolaterally is decreased in size currently measuring an estimated 3 mm. Previously, this nodule measured 4-5 mm. Small nodular density at the inferior right middle lobe is unchanged and there is also a tiny pulmonary nodule measuring 1-2 mm at the inferior lingual, which is probably unchanged as well.
Conclusion: I’m a radiologist, and pictures never lie. Your scans look great. Go have a handcrafted beer and relax. (or words to that effect)

Peter,
That's very good news (unless beer causes benign lung nodules). Keep up the good work, and we'll keep praying from our end.
We hope all is well,
Steve
