WHAT THE FUDGESICKLE POPPYCORN FRACKLESTICKS
They found 'nothing unusual'.  At all.   No mention whatsoever of the reproductive structures, or lack there of.
Apparently either they saw a uterus & ovaries (Pretty unlikely at this point as it'd be beneath the pelvic floor), or .. they're just plain frackin blind docs.  It does say female on the scan.

Why wouldn't they even mention it? Oh at least they noted they saw my left inguinal hernia!  Helloooooo.

Why why why why why lol.  Can you understand my frustration???? Or maybe I have one and its ... gah. Forget it every damn scan says something radically different, even if it says nothing at all.  Oh, I have the scans too btw. Jeez.

I know I mentioned it before but download Invaleus from the Brazilian government web site and load you dicom files in it. If you play with the filter you can view muscle and other soft tissues as well as blood vessels in 3d.

I'm sorry you still can't get someone to actually look for your problem.

They should have noted any reproductive irregularities... I had an abdominal CT scan done a couple  of weeks ago and they sure made note of mine! (I'm 20 years post-op)

PELVIC ORGANS:The urinary bladder, prostate, and seminal vesicles
appear normal. There is no free fluid or adenopathy. The patient has
had gender re-assignment surgery.

I think I would make a copy, put a big red F on it with note saying no discussion of reproductive organs then send it back to them. In the real world, ask the doctor to request they do another reading looking for reproductive issues.

I have a shadow in my right lung about the size of a hard ball. It has been in there from when I was a child and is the result of valley fever. The X-ray lab wrote up a report that I had serious issues so I had the doctor ask them to pull up a previous X-ray and compare it with the current one. The next lab report came back clean and I am still alive many years latter.

I actually did just that. Sent it back for reevaluation.  Its kinda strange they 'skipped over' the reproductive organs and said I was perfectly normal. Especially since that was the chief complaint.  The tech asked me too, and I stated I had an unidentified organ behind the bladder below the pelvic wall.  I couldn't have been more specific than that.

And ya they didn't make any note..whatsoever.   Odd to say the least.  I mean state things one way or another. Or state there is nothing.
