Hi @davidjr and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Connect is a community of patients that come here for support from other people with similar issues, however, we do not have medical professionals on staff to answer questions about medical diagnoses. Have you had a chance to speak with your physician that ordered the test that showed these results?

That sounds very confusing! What kind of test did this report refer to?
Another question- was this test performed in the US?

This was a radiologist’s impression from a recent PET SCAN.
Since I made this post, I was able to discover that this has to do with Sarcoidosis of the lung, which the PET SCAN found. Thank you for your response to my question.
