Minimal Hazy Densities
Xray results showed perihilarbronchial wall thickening w/ perihliar densities w/out evidence of pleural effusion, focal consolidation or pneumothorax?
What is the meaning of my xray result. Lordotic view shows minimal hazy infiltrates in the left apex. Consider minimal PTB of undetermined activity.?
Xray : Right lung upper zone shows patchy fibrocalcific changes. Remaining lung fields are clear. Evidence of bilateral bifid rib L anterior 4 R 3?
Consult ordering dr: Bifid ribs are congenital and usually are of no consequence and are variations of normal. Fibrocalcific disease is probably related to previous granulomatous infection. Most common is tuberculosis. In Southwest coccidiodomycosis is fungal cause. In midwest Blastomycosis is usually cause. Long term antibiotic treatment sounds like a chronic infection like one of the above. Various testing available ...Read more
What is the meaning of apicolordotic view shows coarse reticular and hazy densities in the right lung apex?
Heading toward dx: It means there is something in the uppermost part of the right lung that needs to be further evaluated, unless the diagnosis is already known. The x ray interpretation you provided suggests to me it's most likely to be an infectious problem, but a number of causes need to be considered. ...Read more
Comment on X ray result: "The lung fields have a minor hyperinflated appearance. Maybe emphysematous change. Slight scattered fibrotic stranding."?
Lordotic view shows minimal hazy infiltrates in the left apex. Consider minimal PTB of undetermined activity. Kindly explain it to me. Thank you?
Chest x-ray: The presence of the so-called hazy infiltrates in the the top of the left upper lobe has caused the radiologist reading the film to suggest that you may have tuberculosis. This is not the purview of a radiologist and their suggestion is only to make sure that the doctor ordering the film considers this in their diagnostic evaluation. Continue your work-up with your doctor. ...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
HRCT scan chest result focal parenchymal fibrosis rt middle & left lower lobe.w/mammal residual ground glass/opacities. What is the meaning? Prognosis
Hard to know: The findings indicate changes to lung structure in these areas, possibly some scarring and possibly with some fluid/inflammation of the smallest air pockets. Without more knowledge of the clinical history, however, any meaningful interpretation is impossible. The physician who ordered the test will discuss within context of the medical situation. ...Read more
Xray report diffuse reticular shadowing throughout both lungs with reduced lung volumes also the right side No large pleural effusion or pneumothorax.
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
Attenuation of hep parenchyma. Diffuse capsular enhancement and focal capsular retraction on liver ct. No focal lesions. Could sle serositis cause ?
Explain in laymen: "subtle asymmetric haziness at peripheral left lung. This may represent developing consolidation but nonspecific. No pneumothrax"?
A very faint subpleural nodular density in the left lower lobe posterolaterally noted on CT Scan along with minor nodularity to posterior lung bases?
What does this means " apicolordotic view shows increased density in the left suprahilar and linear densities in the periphery"?
What is the treatment to cure this result Lordotic view shows minimal hazy infiltrates in the left apex. Consider minimal PTB of undetermined activity?
Pulmonary TB: Before considering treatment you really need a specific diagnosis. One does not treat radiologic findings alone. ...Read more
Chest X-ray showed focal patchy lingular opacity No change from 2012 Likely represents chronic airspace collapse &/or consolidation. Is this serious?
Is this alarming
No acute focal lung infiltrate
Stable appearing tiny ovoid hyperdensity which may relate to calcified granuloma?
Stable is good. : Technically it would be good for me to know when the last xray was (the one to which they're comparing the current one). Bad things will pretty universally grow over time, so if this hypersensitive has not grown in months, or years, then it's very likely benign. ...Read more
