Right Apex Lung
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
What's a 14mm noncalcified left upper lobe parenchymal pulmonary mass adjacent atelectasis.Left upper lobe bronchus/hillar peribronchial cuffing/thick?
Mgt PHI: The imaging may be uploaded to an inbox consultation. From your description I would suggest a follow up imaging study with an evaluation with additional information. Have you smoked? Is there a family history of cancer? Have you been tested for any infections? The mass is probably impinging on the airway and causing areas of collapse, called atelectasis. This area is prone to secondary infection ...Read more
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?
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
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
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
Male 30,Chest CT shows 6 mm nodular density in the left upper lobe,minimal bibasilar dependent atelectasis, have shortness of breath,it needs surgery?
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
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. Please sure to talk to your doctor for the appropriate steps. ...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
Pressure pain left side of chest no shortness of breath 3.10.13 chest x ray-minimal lung collapse in right lung base cause?
Partial lung collaps: R u a smoker or second-hand smoker?18 y/o pretty young for emphysema (air sacs's wall break down forming larger sac; if on edge of lung, lobe can collapse). Decreased space usually filled with other lung's expanding which can shift central chest structures. May need review of radiograph for other problems, even ct/mri. Htn unlikely cause. R u under care of pulmonologist? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Nonetheless, work closely with Doc. Besides, today's medical care has been under high pressure of political correctness, consumerism, & commercialism. Keeping these in mind will help the future. ...Read more
Lung fields are clear. Blunting of the right costophrenic angle. - Right Basal Pleural Thickening. Is it serious?
6mm nodule left lung base pleural surface and faint 6mm nodule on left lower sub pleural lobe found from CT. Enlarged heart found on right side. Also very slight alveolitis found in right upper lobe. ?
Small subpleural nodules in right upper lobe.Mild aread of fibrosis in bilateral apices.Mild mediastinal lymphadenopathy.Enlarged carinal lymph node.?
Unknown: Complete history, exposures, symptoms, etc... Would be critical. Subcarinal nodes could be sampled. In addition, depending on radiographic appearance and interpretation, could have lung biopsies as well. But, potential diagnosis is fairly large, numerous possibilities. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ligula: The ligula is the equivalent of the middle lobe of the lung on the left-hand side. There is no true middle lobe but it is an area of the left lung. Atelectasis refers to an area of the lung where there is no good gas exchange due to either obstruction or filling in with fluid. This is often seen with an infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
