Minimal Bilateral Apical Pleural Thickening
Xray results showed perihilarbronchial wall thickening w/ perihliar densities w/out evidence of pleural effusion, focal consolidation or pneumothorax?
Tuberculosis: Yoy have tuberculosis(tb) noted in your history. Tb can cause abnormalities like pleural thickening and effusion. The treatment your are taking is appropriate and you should be following along with your doctor. Your x-ray or ct scan evaluates the lung and the radiologist interprets the findings. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Explained below: There is a collection of fluid in an estimated small amount around your lung. On the left there is most likely a focal area of scar connecting the lining of the lung called the pleura with the diaphragm. Did you have an empyema? An infection in the pleural space and/or a chest tube placed? ...Read more
My chess X-ray result :bilateral apical pleural thickening with underlying sub pleural blebs.
Is it a TB scar ?
What does Diffuse coarsened interstitial markings throughout both lungs w/bilateral hilar prominence and perihilar infiltrates mean. ?
Ct chest adrenal nodule 1.9 CM right. Lungs demonstrate babisalar dependent atelectasis small subpleural bullae noted right up lobe trace pericardial?
Adrenal eval: Hi. The adrenal nodule needs to be evaluated. What were the Hounsfield units on the non-contrast scan of the nodule? Your endocrinologist will determine: 1) if it's producing any hormones, and 2) if it's growing. If high Hounsfield units, it needs sooner evaluation. Any hirsutism, amenorrhea, diabetes, serious high blood pressure, sweating, headache, palpitations, etc? Good luck! ...Read more
Patchy subpleural parenchymal scars in both apies on right lung middle segmental lobe and inferior lingular ligament?
My x-ray results show I have Fibrotic scarring, right upper lobe Minimal fluid versus pleural thickening left costrophrenic sulcus.What is that means?
Need to see images: Based on the description you gave, I would need to see the images. It certainly could be some minimal scarring in the right upper lobe & nothing to worry about. It could also be some fluid there, which if that's that case, it would need to be sampled more than likely. The pleural thickening could be related to the fibrosis, or potentially another cause. Let me know if you can upload the xray. ...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
Minimal atelectatic medically rt middle lobe and lingular area on lt with multiple small nodules with subpleural density and pleural-based no pleural effusion or pneumothorax what does this mean?
Bronchoscopy: First you will need a diagnosis of what these nodules are. The atelectases in both lungs should be evaluated by looking at the airways to make sure there is no nodule in the airways causing collapse and in addition the bronchoscopy may just give all the diagnosis. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Probably not.......: This is most likely the result of previous infection. Typically this thickening will look the same on the right and left with only some minor difference in thickness. If this is the case it is most likely nothing to worry about and just a follow-up chest xray to give you peace of mind. If there is a marked asymmetry or associated bone destruction this would need further evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ct 4 pneumomed (ok now) also noted "minimal interlobular septal thickening @ lung apices", "thickwalled but decompressed bladder", "irregularly shaped enhancing follicle in left ovary". Translation?
Xray report diffuse reticular shadowing throughout both lungs with reduced lung volumes also the right side No large pleural effusion or pneumothorax.
My chest X-ray finding indicates: right apical pleural thickening and pulmonary hyperaeration. What does that mean?
Non specific: apical pleural thickening is non specific but can mean possible previous infection, most common is tuberculosis. Hyperaeration if a real finding is seen in asthma and COPD. Sometimes patients when told to take a deep breathe can over cooperate and simulate hyperaeration. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chest CT scan subsegmental atelectasis versus fibrosis in medial margins of r \l upper lobes abutting mediastinum was f/u for 6mm ground glass nodule
The fibrosis and : Atelectasis isnt anything to worry about, just some lung tissue collapsed on itself and scarring. The ground glass nodule is something that may need longer term follow up to make sure it doesnt grow. These can be due to something called atypical adenomatous hyperplasia (aah). ...Read more
Subcapsular and capsular arterial phase enhancement of liver. Focal capsular retraction @inferior rt hepatic tip along lateral margin. Layman's terms?
See hepatologist: Arterial enhancement means that the area is dependent of arterial blood, usually meaning some type of inflammation or malignancy. Retraction means that the capsule of the liver is indented, concerning for scarring or cancer. With a definable mass, this would be concerning and necessitate a liver biopsy or repeat scan in a few months. See a liver specialist. ...Read more
