    Greetings,

    A patient had a bone scan to look for the spreading of cancer. I think there was an incidental finding about the jaw where 'a correlacionar' appears.

    Here is the phrase:

    Estudio negativo para enfermedad ósea metastásica.
    Ostroartritis en rodillas
    Proceso inflamatorio en maxilar superior izquierdo a correlacionar.

    Incidental finding of . . . ?

    Thanks

    So there was no metastatic bone disease, they found osteoarthritis in the knees, and an inflammatory process in the upper left jaw that needs to be clinically correlated.

    Hi:

    It is not incidental, I think it would be just "finding", and the correlation should be done; because this kind of uptake in that region usually is because sinusitis or dental problems; so, as Eric says, clinical correlation needs to be done.
