Fibrotic Changes In Lungs
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
Patchy infiltration with fibrotic changes are seen in both lungs more marked in upper right lobe , costophrenic angles, heart and bony cage are norma ?
Seems benign : These are chronic, long-standing changes. Why was the x-Ray taken - for "routine checkup" or did you have symptoms, like a cough? Have you had a TB test? It would be best to have your physician advise you. The x-ray findings don't seem problematic (therefore, they seem benign). But ultimately, it does depend on your symptoms & the reason the test was ordered. Hope that helps. ...Read more
Chest x ray PA view shows fibrosis in mid lower zones and bronchitic changes are seen, can it be pulmonary fibrosis?
Chest xray: hyperinflation of lung fields with relative peripheral oligaemic lung fields.Features in keeping with emphysematous change. Pls explain?

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
My chest X-ray showed biapical subpleural scaring. Mild chronic interstitaa changes in lung bases. What does this mean?
Nonspecific: Over time, the lungs may be exposed to many things including inhaled irritants, bacteria/viruses and even stomach acid in people with reflux. Over time, some scarring can develop in the lungs as a result of these insults. What you describe sounds like these types of changes, though you should discuss with your doctor to be sure you don't have some ongoing interstitial lung disease. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Dead space in lung: Dead space is a term used to describe an area of the lung where gas exchange cannot occur - it does not mean dead lung tissue. Everyone has dead space and it is comprised mainly of your airways. It is measured as a percentage. Dead space is affected by many variables including the size of the breath we inhale. Dead space typically decreases as we exercise because we take bigger breaths. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Non-specific finding: Patchy opacities in lung fields indicate the presence of material more dense than the surrounding lung tissue (which is mostly filled with air). This is most commonly due to infections, but can also be the result of masses or inflammatory conditions. The results would need to be interpreted in conjunction with the medical history and a physical examination to determine the likely cause. ...Read more
