Cough: Bronchitis simply means "inflammation of the bronchi". May be acute (bacterial), asthmatic or even chemical. Wheezing, difficulty breathing & fever varies.

Do you mean: symptoms, or X-ray findings? There aren't any X-ray findings, but on CT you could see some inflamed airway markings at most. Symptoms include persistent cough or accelerating cough, wheezing, shortness of breath, fever or no fever, productive sputum, or chest pain. Hope this helps.
