Our report says Chest Apical Lordotic for RUL density ob chest xray: Chest CT is needed to further ealuate the preciously described findings as well?
Not reliable : narrowing of the subglottic area may be genetic or acquired. This condition may involve soft tissue scarring, cartilage, or combination of both. CT and MRI do not reliably image the cartilage of the airway, thus are not conclusive. The best evaluation method is history taken and direct laryngoscopy with palpation. See a neck and head surgeon for more information and treatment options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
