Crowding Of The Basal Lung Markings Secondary To Elevated Diaphragm
What does this Radiographic Report of Chest PA mean ... " There is crowding of the basal lung markings secondary to elevated diaphragm" Thank you :)?
Lung base unexpanded: The diaphragm is a thin membrane like muscle which stretches downward to expand the lungs. when it relaxes it moves upward and lungs compress. sometimes one side of the diaphragm may remain elevated for various reasons. The basal portions of the lungs is the base, or bottom portion. When the diaphragm is high, the normal tissue crowds together and appears thicker. It is not necessarily abnormal ...Read more
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more

Radiology: This can be caused by infection, pulmonary embolization, and other inflammatory conditions and in order to interpret these findings appropriately they must be correlated with your clinical presentation and findings on exam and lab testing. Good luck and hope this clears up soon. ...Read more

Please interpret "Interstitial thickening with bronchial periovascolo shaded area of parenchymal consolidation in the lower field" from chest X-ray. ?
Lung fields are clear. Blunting of the right costophrenic angle. - Right Basal Pleural Thickening. Is it serious?
Discharge letter "subtle ventilation defect seen lower right lobe of lung airways disease (infection) possibility ? Does this mean copd or worse?
Minimal haziness noted in the right lung base which may represent pneumonitis or just overlapping vascular markings. What does it mean ?
Pulmonary infiltrate: This is radiologist language. It generally means that there is a minimal shadow in that area of the lung and that the examiner cannot be sure if it is abnormal or not, and so he refers it back to the doctor who ordered it in order that it be placed in clinical context of your symptoms and other findings. ...Read more

Significance of this? Extrinsic compression on the thoracic esophagus by the aortic arch in what appears to be left main stem bronchus.
Odd: I assume you are reading the results of a radiology study (recent imaging procedure). The listed structures all lie in close proximity in the mediastinum, the most posterior of which is the esophagus. Unless you are having difficulty swallowing, a cough, or chest discomfort, I wouldn't worry much about this. You might want to confirm by reviewing the report with your doctor. ...Read more
Pleural plaques: In most cases are without any symptoms and without any cause no limitation of activity. The plaques may mean previous exposure to asbestos, so the future problems of asbestos exposure are to be watched, but the plaques present won't turn to cancer either. Unles the plaques are large and many, they don't affect breathing. ...Read more

Erosion of the floor of the anterior cranial fossa and crista galli. What does that mean? Have metastasis to brain and lungs from renal cancer
Questionable small density at the left upper lung field and linear atelectasis is superimposed on the left hilum.What? Cancer? Remainder lungs clear.
Possible: The possibility of cancer is almost always there. The risk depends on the smoking history, family history of cancer, the size of the mass, etc.. Smokers are at higher risk. Certain cancers are familial. Larger spots and those with ragged edges are more likely to be cancerous. Consultation with oncologist or lung specialist may be considered.. ...Read more

Can a Mucous Retention Cyst in the inferior aspect of the left max sinus cause unilateral ptosis? CT also shows thickening of several ethmoid air cell
No: No, very unlikely. Mucous retention cysts in the sinuses are very common. The ethmoid thickening is also unlikely to cause the issue. I would look for another reason for the ptosis. ...Read more
Can benign nodules and many calcified granulomas [seen on my new ct] create obstruction in airways and cause lung portions to collapse, ?
Unlikely: Benign pulmonary granulomas are an extremely common finding on ct of the chest, and almost never cause symptoms. A granuloma should never cause an airway obstruction. Other processes such as endobronchial mucus plugs or aspiration or a central mass lesion can cause obstruction and collapse of the affected segment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
