Doctor insights on:
What does Diffuse coarsened interstitial markings throughout both lungs w/bilateral hilar prominence and perihilar infiltrates mean. ?
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
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
Xray results showed perihilarbronchial wall thickening w/ perihliar densities w/out evidence of pleural effusion, focal consolidation or pneumothorax?
Patchy subpleural parenchymal scars in both apies on right lung middle segmental lobe and inferior lingular ligament?
Sometimes: Calcifications are readily seen on chest radiograph particularly if several millimeters in diameter. Major bronchi can be seen. Smaller bronchi become evident when walls thicken secondary to coughing, viral infection, or smoking.Vascular markngs are normally seen because veins and arteries contain blood. Vascular markings can increase in infection, heart failure, and with congenital heart disease ...Read more
Ct angiogram shows non calcified opacity on middle lobe 4mm. Appearance of benign intrapulmonary lymph node on lung with no pleural abnormalites.
Opacity: The question to your doctor should be - is this an incidental pulmonary nodule or something more concerning. If the ct angio was done for something completely unrelated, and it was a true incidental finding, some guidelines say that under a certain size (4mm) for low risk patients (no smoking, etc), then no follow up is needed. Otherwise a biopsy or interval imaging followup is appropriate. ...Read more
Chest XRay - Latetal view demonstrates blunting of both costophrenic angles w/either small lung base pleural effusions are chronic pleural thickening.
If you have: previous chest X-rays to compare, that would be helpful in making the determination between mild pleural thickening(scarring) or effusion(fluid). There are numerous potential etiologies for each. Further imaging could include ultrasound, special chest xray views(decubitus views ), or CT scan. ...Read more
Partial Collapse: The lingula is the lower anterior (front) portion of the left upper lobe of the lung that corresponds to the right middle lobe. Atelectasis is collapse of a portion of the lung. So, subsegmental atelectasis means that portions of lung segments of the lingula are incompletely aerated. May indicate bronchial blockage, poor breathing, or even early infection. ...Read more
Are Few tiny scattered nonenhancing T2/T2 FLAIR hyperintensities involving periventricular/ subcortical Zones supratentorial compartment bilat normal?
MRI: You can talk to your doctor about what this finding means in the context of your clinical picture, but usually what you are describing is an incidental, age-related finding that is probably of not much concern. ...Read more
Arteriosclerotic internal carotid & vertebro basilar arteries predominantly the left vertebrobasilar segment appearing tortuous with slight prominence?
Lung markings: Hi HajjM, that is a very general term used to describe what is going on within the tissue of lung when seen on a chest xray. In the lung you have airbags (alveoli) and tissue(interstitium). The tissue has blood vessels, lymph vessels, and many cells that make up the framework of the lung. When seen on xray, it could mean several things. Talk with your doctor about the findings. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What's a 14mm noncalcified left upper lobe parenchymal pulmonary mass adjacent atelectasis.Left upper lobe bronchus/hillar peribronchial cuffing/thick?
Mgt PHI: The imaging may be uploaded to an inbox consultation. From your description I would suggest a follow up imaging study with an evaluation with additional information. Have you smoked? Is there a family history of cancer? Have you been tested for any infections? The mass is probably impinging on the airway and causing areas of collapse, called atelectasis. This area is prone to secondary infection ...Read more
Is this alarming
No acute focal lung infiltrate
Stable appearing tiny ovoid hyperdensity which may relate to calcified granuloma?
Stable is good. : Technically it would be good for me to know when the last xray was (the one to which they're comparing the current one). Bad things will pretty universally grow over time, so if this hypersensitive has not grown in months, or years, then it's very likely benign. ...Read more
Ovoid subcutaneous hypoechoic focal lesion size1.6x0.9 echogenic central hilum. Minimally enlarged reactive node in neck.ultra sound 2012. Concern??
Lymph nodes: are normal structures. If they are mildly enlarged, it is usually due to benign causes. If it has been stable since 2012, in all likelihood it is of no concern. ...Read more
