I am a 37 year old female. Had repeat CT recently last one 2 years prior r/t c-diff colitis. CT results this time showed new calcified granuloma on left lung base, New Focal fatty infiltration of the liver seen near the fissure for the ligamentum venosum, old unchanged tiny bilateral cortical hyperdensities unchanged. No other significant findings. Dr states normal should I get second opinion. Thanks

If getting a second opinion would be peace of mind for you; do it.
Secondly, the granuloma and fatty liver is recent for you. Usually, granulomas are benign, though it should be definitely monitored as well as your history with bilateral cortical hyperdensities (I assumed the cortical issue is renal).
Thirdly, in my opinion, the fatty liver issue should be further investigated. There are many conditions that can cause a fatty liver.
