Band Opacities In The Left Lower Zone
What does "opacity in the left lower zone with obliteration of the left costophrenic angle-pleural effusion" mean?
My CT showed groundglass densities in the anterior and posterior of the basal segment of the lower right lung. Could this be from a partial collapsed that I had in 1994?
Yes: Although it was 20 years ago, it is possible to have areas of lung that are not fully aerated on a chronic type basis. Often called atelectasis. This could be what is described by "groundglass density" The best way to tell is with direct comparison of the old CT scan to a new one. It is also possible that this area represents a more recent area of pneumonia. See if a comparison can be done. ...Read more

Tiny calcific density in the right upper lungfield and faint linear density in the right midlung area. Probably of no present clinical significance. ?
Calcium in lung: How was it diagnosed, by CXR, or by CT-MRI. Presence of CA, is always abnormal. Because of the numerous structures in the upper chest, x-rays may show several shadows in normally clear areas. Reasons can range from the benign (rib shadows, anatomic anomalies), to more serious, including active infections (pneumonia, TB), old scars (healed TB), malignancies, and other diseases. Either way, suspicious densities should prompt your physician to pursue additional tests, which may include additional x-rays or CT scan. ...Read more
