I had the same type of issue. It went from 4.7 to 4.9 but they said it was "no change". I asked about that and they said it depends on where it was measured exactly so the number varies. The important part is when they compare the previous to the current and they say "no change". Frustrating, but it is what it is so we just wait. And live a good life..

I certainly wish there were a different way of measuring the size of an aneurysm, or, better yet, one I can understand. As my last CT Scan report stated a larger size than the previous year, I was so alarmed I later called the cardiology department nurse to ask for an explanation and the answer I received was so ambiguous & confusing it was apparent it was a search for a reply. When I'm told not to worry when I see the size getting larger, its very hard not to become even more frightened than what I already am. Can anyone offer a reasonable answer?
