Prominence Of Bilateral Perihilar Bronchovascular Markings is noted... please say what does this mean in common wods?
X-RAY FINDINGS: The hilum is an area of the lung where the breathing tubes, blood vessels, & many lymph nodes all come together. Findings could represent acute infection like pneumonia, inflammation, malignancy, chronic conditions, or nothing at all. I would certainly follow up promptly with the person who ordered the x-ray for an explanation of possibilities in the context of your current medical history. ...Read more
What does increased bilateral perihilar and paracardiac bronchovascular markings and right apears to be more affected mean?
Radiology-speak!: The radiologist sees signs of inflammation in the area near the center of the chest called the hilum as well as the basal or bottom portions of the lungs. Hyperaeration means there is increased air-space to lung tissue ratio, caused by breakdown of the septa between alveoli, creating fewer but larger alveoli, as seen in emphysema. Its up to your doctor to interpret these findings. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does Diffuse coarsened interstitial markings throughout both lungs w/bilateral hilar prominence and perihilar infiltrates mean. ?
Whay does this mean " the lung fields are clear and consider perihilar pneumonitis, bilateral? Can my son still go with his operation/surgery?
Depends on situation: If the kid will be placed under an inhaled general anesthesia, such a reading on an x-ray might lead the treatment team to delay an elective operation. A lung disorder can be aggravated by inhaled anesthetics & lead to worsening of the lung status. Discussion of the findings with your doc is indicated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My babys chest xray shows prominent markings bilaterally perihilar region particularly r infahilar region.Superimposed infiltrate suspected.Explain?
Possible pneumonia: The xray findings you describe are a radioogist's way of saying it's not certain, but its possible there is a small area of pneumonitis (pneumonia) on the xray. This doesn't mean your baby has pneumonia - your doctor will consider many other factors before concluding what this means. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Increased perihilar markings bilaterally r/t CHF... does this indicate pneumonia? What else could it indicate?
CHF -: CHF stands for congestive heart failure, which indicates there is insufficient forward flow of blood throughout the circulatory system. On xray, fluid accumulation around the blood vessels show up from the pressure buildup. This is not an infection, unlike pneumonia. The concern for you is to identify why someone of your age would have CHF in the first place. See your doc asap to address this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can't see clearly: Perihilar=area around the hilum/root of the lungs, basically where the airway enters the lung--both=both sides. Haziness=not clearly defined increase in density, often due to enlargement of some lymhnodes/inflamation in the area. It is nonspecific--can't tell for sure what it is. A poorly done xray can produce this haziness. Consult doc to review finding in context of your disease. Good luck. ...Read more
Stable = good+/-.: Fullness means there is something more buldging/larger than expected in an area. Peri-hilar means the area where your bronchial tree in the lung area splits up into the different branches that go out to the lung. Therefore, you have a fullness of that area. Stable can be good, but what is the time frame? To be safe, check with the ordering doc to see if it needs further testing. ...Read more

COPD: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease encompasses emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Basically, this means that smoking or another inhalant has made distortions in the architecture of your lungs that make it harder for them to work. Atelectasis and scarring physical changes that occur secondary to COPD. ...Read more
Xray result:Prominent perihilar interstitial markings suggesting bronchitis.No superimposed infiltrate or atelectasis.I thought bronchitis didn't show?
Subtile finding: Normal bronchial walls are hard to see on a chest x ray (arrows in pic). If they are thickened one can see them a little more. Even so, it is a tough call so we say "suggestive of" to say we really are not sure, but we see enough to be more than just a little suspicious. For complete eval of lung tissue we do high resolution CT. "Bronchitis" is a clinical diagnosis, though, so listen to your Dr. ...Read more
What does streaky infiltrates in both perihilar and basal regions and lung fields are hyperaerated in xray mean?
X ray showed: biapical pleural thickening, perihilar interstitial prominence and mild hyperaeration. What does this mean?
Pleural thickening.: It means you need to discuss with your Tx dr. ...Read more
Chest xray findings for my 18 yr old daughter: coarse prominence of the perihilar markings and no focal infiltrate. What does this mean?
Suggests virus: That is a common description used by the radiologist when things are not really normal but also not consistent with pneumonia. Realize that very early in a pneumonia, the x-ray could be clear (takes time for the body to react) so the doc must rely on symptoms/exam in addition to X-ray..Focal infiltrate would be what they look for to call it pneumonia. ...Read more

Hello,My baby is 22months old having fever103 cough LABS:serum IgE level 310 ,MP (ICT)negative,CXR minimal perihilar infiltration , taking antibiotic?
Sounds viral: Most viral infections, such as influenza, can give high fevers and cough with a similar chest x-ray pattern. Unless your child has a high WBC, respiratory distress, is immunosuppressed or has fever over 5-7 days, I would continue to treat symptomatically with fever and fluid management as antibiotics are not helpful for viral infections. I hope your child feels better soon. ...Read more
