This X-ray report is fairly benign. Unless the patient has new chest symptoms like cough, he/she does not need to do anything further.

The tenting may be associated with resolved infection and fibrosis. If you have a smoking history, pulmonary symptoms, weight loss or any health issues, please discuss a thoracic HRCT with your PCP. TB may recur and repeat blood testing may be indicated.
