Hello Anonymous,

This sounds like part of the report of a CT scan with contrast. A radiologist reads the scan and files a report. The ordering physician receives the report and uses this information, along with the patient's medical history and other diagnostic test reports, to make a diagnosis and formulate a treatment plan.

You should have a follow up appointment with your physician to discuss these results.

I can tell you that "intense uptake" indicates an area of interest, more dye was taken up; "pubic symphysis" is the firm fibrocartilaginous joint between the two pubic bones; "acute" means sharp, severe or serious'; "comminuted fracture" means a fracture in which the bones are broken into several pieces; "superior ramus" is part of the pubic bone.

No one but your attending physician can interrupt these CT scan results for you.
