You may upload the report and image during a virtual consult with HT. From your description there may be inflammation or infection in the right lower lobe. This finding should be correlated with clinical symptoms, and the image may take weeks to resolve. If you have COVID 19 or TB risk factors, please obtain screening. Watch for fever, difficulty breathing and sputum production.
