Student Nurse looking for info

  1. 0 I am an ADN student in my first semester of classes. (fundamentals, theory, currently clinical is at a local nursing home)

    My question is about a chest xray...

    a result from a Radiologist was a "prominence" showing up that is "possibly vascular in nature". With a recommendation of another chest x ray in 3 months.
    I can find no information on a "vascular prominence" in any of my text regarding this. I assume the radiologist was referring to the pulmonary arteries.....??

    Can anyone clarify/explain this, or give me a source to even begin researching?

    Thanks!

    I think what the radiologiest means is this-They see something funny on xray, but it doesn't look like a tumor. It looks vascular-meaning it looks like it could be a arterial or venous. they want to see the xray in 3 months to see if it has changed. ie if its gotten bigger.

    If I remember, I'll try to ask our radiologist next time I'm at work.

    or you could go to

    good luck
