They can see portions of the chest because they start the exam in the lower chest. If the patient had breast cancer, the doctor might mention the axillae.

CTA of the abdomen help, please
Subject: CTA of the abdomen help, please

Patient has a stenotic superior mesenteric artery.  Doctor is giving the findings of the CTA and says, with no pauses:  "She has findings suggestive of progression of a high-grade approximately 80-90% stenosis of the proximal 1 cm of the SMA cascade collaterals."  I cannot find "SMA cascade collaterals".  Should there be anything between SMA and cascade collaterals like a comma or something.  (Doc always uses fragments, not complete sentences, so it's not easy to separate things)  Anyone heard of this?  Thanks very much!

This is a death summary. 


Whole sentence: She had s/l doy abdomen,  mild pneumonia, and CAT scan nonspecific from free-air, obvious abdominal catastrophe, but she was treated with Zosyn antibiotics in surgical consultation, as well as respiratory consultations for ventilatory management. This sentence does not make sense!?!

I transcribe every so often for a visiting doctor and when he does the abdominal exam he always says, "abdomen is soft, non-tender, no masses(?) but he's putting a "megaly" at the end of it.


I've googled all possible words and have come up with nothing. I know mastomegaly is enlargement of the breasts but would he say that for an abdomen exam, on a man?
