I am posting an image and three movies.
The image represents a chest x-ray that was performed on May 2, 2006. The collection of movies are of a CT scan that was performed in early December.
I am hoping that a few qualified (and curious) individuals will take the time to review the scans and will be gracious enough to give their two cents regarding a diagnosis. Optimally, by making these records public I will attract a few quality outside diagnoses and hopefully those diagnoses will be in line with what my doctor has already stated. If there are differing opinions on the scans, at least I can bring these points up with my next doctor’s appointment to have them addressed.
Before I get yelled at by the rest of the world stating "why the hell are you relying on stranger for your diagnosis!" let me reiterate that I have already been to one specialist and am getting a second opinion on Jan 2nd just to be safe.
I am intentionally keeping the details behind my diagnosis vague. I want all assessments done solely by the data presented.
I have a pretty good BS detector, so please don’t tell me that I have Leprosy.
So if you’re a doctor or pre-med student, or if you’re a fan of “House”, post your best diagnosis. Once you have your diagnosis, go ahead and read the comments. There I will give further information on my circumstances.
