    The following diagnostic procedures are used to verify and assess cases of Hodgkin’s disease in suspected individuals: Chest X-ray CT scan of chest, pelvis and abdomen Complete[] Surgical biopsy: The surgeon will make a cut in the skin over the abnormal tissue to remove all or part of the lymph node to help make a diagnosis Chest X-ray: Pictures of[] Backaches may occur at night due to bone marrow compression signs of abnormal B-cell proliferations.[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Chest X-ray and thoracic CT showed ground glass opacities or consolidation spreading from the hilar area to the peripheral area, suggesting central redistribution.[] Peripheral edema: Edema develops in the feet in ambulatory patients and sacral edema in bed bound patients.[] sacral region in bedridden patients.[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Chest X-ray • Size and shape of heart • Evidence of pulmonary venous congestion (dilated or upper lobe veins perivascular edema) • Pleural effusion 29.[] As a result, there will be peripheral edema, swelling in foot and ankle in people who are mostly standing and sacral edema in people who are lying down.[] , sacral edema, ascites and/or anasarca Various manifestations of increased hydrostatic venous pressures Hepatosplenomegaly ( /- right upper quadrant pain) Portal and splenic[]

  • Acute Massive Pulmonary Embolism

    Resolution of embolism as judged by symptoms, signs, electrocardiogram, and chest x-ray examination was almost always complete.[] , sacral edema Nocturia * At least 1 of the following.[] Some pulmonary arteriograms 1 to 6 months after initial treatment showed minor abnormalities, but others at a later date were normal.[]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    A chest x-ray performed before any fluid resuscitation depicted a pulmonary edema and pleural effusion.[] sacral region in bedridden patients.[] A chest X-ray demonstrated cardiomegaly with no acute abnormality.[]

  • Anasarca

    […] who are standing up, and sacral edema in people who are predominantly lying down).[] She was pale, with ankle and sacral edema. Cardiovascular examination revealed sinus tachycardia and normal first and second heart sound.[] This causes swelling under the skin (termed peripheral edema or anasarca ) and usually affects the dependent parts of the body first (causing foot and ankle swelling in people[]

  • Ascites

    Approximately 1,500 mL of fluid must be present to detect dullness. 205 In supine patients, sacral edema is an important clue.[]

    Erosion of lower sacral spine ( small arrow ) and massive abdominal ascites are shown.
