Linear Streak Density At The Riht Mid Lung
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
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
Nonspecific: That sounds very nonspecific. Possibilities range from it being absolutely nothing to being something that needs more investigation. I recommend discussing the results with your primary doctor or the interpreting radiologist. ...Read more
Tiny calcific density in the right upper lungfield and faint linear density in the right midlung area. Probably of no present clinical significance. ?
Calcium in lung: How was it diagnosed, by CXR, or by CT-MRI. Presence of CA, is always abnormal. Because of the numerous structures in the upper chest, x-rays may show several shadows in normally clear areas. Reasons can range from the benign (rib shadows, anatomic anomalies), to more serious, including active infections (pneumonia, TB), old scars (healed TB), malignancies, and other diseases. Either way, suspicious densities should prompt your physician to pursue additional tests, which may include additional x-rays or CT scan. ...Read more
Pleural bassed nodule at posterior aspect os mid cephalad right lower lobe of lung 7 x 4 mm. Also linear atelectasis within right midlung. Age 73?
Follow up of nodule: The linear atelectasis is nothing to worry about. The pleural based nodule sounds like a potentially benign nodule. Surveillance of a nodule of this size, however, is frequently recommended, particularly if you have a smoking history.

Chest X-ray results say curvilinear density in the R pericardial region. Could represent fat pad or small R middle lobe infiltrate. Lung cancer?
It is unlikely: that it is cancer, but it still may require further evaluation with a CT scan to be sure. If you had any previous chest xrays elsewhere, have them sent to the radiologist to compare with the new one. That could solve the issue without any additional tests. Talk to your doctor about the results. ...Read more
What does this means " apicolordotic view shows increased density in the left suprahilar and linear densities in the periphery"?
Damage: You have some scarring (fibrosis) and, perhaps, hyperinflation (enlargement) of your lungs. These are signs of damage. If you smoke, you surely should quit. If you're exposed to second hand smoke or toxic fumes, try to avoid them if possible. If you're over 50, it may just be...that you're over 50! We have many exposures as the years progress that are unavoidable. ...Read more

Mri:very small area with abnormal high signal intensity on t2 fat sat is seen in the dome of the talus suggestive for subchondral edamatous contusion?
Talar dome lesion: This could indicate a possible talar dome lesion. Talar dome lesions are usually caused by an injury, such as an ankle sprain. If the cartilage does not heal properly following the injury, it softens and may break off. Sometimes a broken piece of the damaged cartilage and bone will “float” in the ankle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
