Hi Everyone, I took my son-in-law and daughter to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center-Presbyterian Hospital today. Brent was scheduled for an ultrasound-guided liver biopsy. Two Radiologists, one a division chief, performed an ultrasound with a new state-of-the-art machine that allows the ultrasound images to overlap with the images from the CT's and MRI's that he had done at our local hospital. They allowed my daughter and I to stay for it and were so nice to answer all of our questions. I am an RN, so I was taking notes to relay all of the information to our family and friends. The Radiologists determined that the lesions on Brent's liver were "focal nodular hyperplasia". That is a common benign liver tumor that has always been present, but until he had scans, it was not discovered. They said it is not harmful and should not be a problem. Because they felt sure of the diagnosis, they did not do a biopsy, which would have carried the risk of a collapsed lung, bleeding, etc. They also said that he can have one of two specialized nuclear medicine scans which will show the focal nodular hyperplasia as a bright spot. This will be done for Brent's peace of mind. I was impressed with the level of care given at the hospital and by all the staff. Thank you all so much for your prayers for Brent. Thanks be to God...our prayers have been answered!
