Doctor insights on:
Infiltrates Are Seen At The Right Upper Lobe
Good eve. I have an xray results that having a suspicious infiltrates are seen in the right upper lobe. What does it mean doc? Thank you
Can you tell me for suspicious densities are seen in the right upper lobe, does this require apicolordotic view?
Sometimes: Sometimes apices of lungs behind clavicles are not seen well. Apical lordotic view helpful to project clavicles above apices of lungs.
What should medicine could I take because the findings was a minimal ptb? And there was a suspicious infiltrates in the right upper lobe? Means what?
Treatment plan: If you have a positive TB test and a suspicious Chest Radiograph, a TB treatment plan will be recommended by your physician. It is important to take all of the medications as prescribed, and to follow up with your PCP. Cultures will be obtained to investigate whether there is resistance of the TB bacteria.
What does suspicious densities is seen in the right upper lobe and left mid lung means? Is it seious or not? Pls answer.
I assume: You are referring to a chest xray? "Suspicous densities" is not very specific, but it sounds like you have abnormal findings (e.g. mass, nodule, infiltrate, scarring) that might require further evaluation with a CT scan or other tests. Talk to your doc about what the results mean. No way to tell based on limited info how serious it might be. Take care.
Suspicious: Suspicious densities would refer to an area or areas seen on the x-ray that are not normally seen in that location and would need further investigation/testing to be done to definitively diagnose what the densities are. Best wishes.
Xray findings: Commonly seen in tuberculosis (TB). Infiltrates are whiter areas seen in the lungs on chest xray. Although TB is the most common cause of bilateral upper-lobe infiltrates, these can also be seen in diseases such as silicosis, ankylosing spondylitis, or actinomycosis. Other tests for TB should be done, and if positive, proper treatment is very important.
Lung Densities: You need to discuss this with the ordering/examining doctor as they have your history, your results and have done an exam. They are in the best position to explain things and give you advice.
Have a 5mm groundglass infiltrate right upper lobe, also a 1.6cm low density nodule on left adrenal gland and left adrenal gland is thickened?
What do you want?: Doctors have to add up ur history, exam, medical problems, your social habits like drinking, smoking and your family history to come to a conclusion. We are not Gods to see just a CT scan result and give you a diagnosis. Please provide above details if you need more insight into what these lesions could be.....Hope you don't misunderstand me...
My xray impression is this: regression of the left upper lobe infiltrates Pulmonary hyperaeration What does it means?
Better: This sounds like your pneumonia is getting better.
I had a previous xray and I undergo tb treatment. Now I had my nxt xray and it says "regression in left upper lobe infiltrates". What does it mean?
Improvement.: Regression of an infiltrate on a chest X-ray would suggest that the infiltrate has improved. It's not gone, but it's better.
Does etoh have any anticoagulation properties? I had asked this question earlier, which was answered very promptly, but did not directly answer the question. I am taking warfarin for a 1.5 CM pe in the right upper lobe. For a week, I stopped my warafrin
Bad idea: Unless directed by your physician stopping your warfarin therapy for a pe is a bad idea. While alcohol (ethanol, or etoh) has anitiplatelet properties, it is not an approved treatment for pulmonary embolism or deep venous thrombosis (dvt). Substituting alcohol for warfarin is a really, really bad idea. I suggest you have your inr checked and consult your physician asap.See 1 more doctor answer
Probably so: Biopsy of a lung nodule depends on the size and location. A nodule smaller than 1 cm is difficult to biopsy. A nodule located too close to the heart or main blood vessels is difficult to biopsy. A nodule too adjacent to the ribs may also be difficult to biopsy. In your case ct follow up at intervals by established guidelines may be considered.
What do you suggest if my friend has a nodule on the right upper lobe & a hypodense lesion on her right thyroid lobe, so does?
When my 6mm lung nodule was found on CT, slight "alvelitis" was found on the right upper lobe. What is alvelitis?
Alveolitis: This is inflammation of the Alveoli, ...the pulmonary (lung) alveoli are the terminal ends of the respiratory tree, which outcrop from either alveolar sacs or alveolar ducts, and which are both sites of gas exchange with the blood as well.
My husband had a CT scan of his chest 3 times, all the times it showed something but this time it showed an existing nodule in the right lung and a new nodule measuring 4 mm in the right upper lobe. The left lower has hazy markings. My husband is a former
Need evaluation: He would need further evaluation. The fact that he is a former smoker, still gives him significant risk for lung cancer. I don't know the size of the 1st nodule- if possible, a core biopsy should be done to rule out malignancy. A pet scan also needs to be done if not been done in the past- although however, negative finding on the 2nd nodule will not rule out cancer completely due to its size.See 1 more doctor answer
Any ideas why heart failures come from pulmonary embolism in the right upper lobe of the lung in arteriosclerosis?
Several ways: The pe can cause low oxygen including what goes to the heart. It can put strain on the heart, dilate the right side, cause hormones to be released cause tachycardia and due to that chf, arrhythmia and failure of the heart to push blood if big enough. It can then cause paradoxical pressures in the ventricles collapsing the left ventricle due to right pressure.
Upper lobe of?: You need to be more specific. There are lots of organs and structures with multiple lobes. Do you mean the upper lobe of the lung, the thyroid, the liver? Give us a more specific question and we'll happily give you a good answer. :-).
