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 more

The x ray results have a minimal pleuro parenchymal fibrasis right apex what does it means?

The x ray results have a minimal pleuro parenchymal fibrasis right apex what does it means?

Scarring: Fibrosis is scarring. The pleura of the lung is the lining. The parenchyma is the lung tissue itself. Apex is the top of the lung. This means that there is mild scarring in the lung tissue and lung lining at the top of the right lung. It is probably from a prior infection. It should be followed by your doctor or by a pulmonologist. ...Read more

Cxr: "minimal hypoinflation present on last exam no longer seen. Minimal patient rotation has appeared. There is clothing artifact at the left apex"?

Normal: These statements are normal. They suggest that you took a deeper breath during this chest x-ray, you were slightly rotated to one side, and a piece of your clothing was in the way (often a metal buttong) when the x-ray was taken and it can be seen on the x-ray. ...Read more

What are mild emphysematous blebs on upper right apex of the lung? Are these dangerous?

What are mild emphysematous blebs on upper right apex of the lung? Are these dangerous?

Emphysema: Is a disease of the lung which is either caused by smoking or a genetic disorder. Emphysema destroys lung tissue and creates holes called blebs that look like Swiss cheese holes. By themselves, they are not dangerous, but they can lead to pneumothorax (collapsed lung). Since they are associated with smoking, they can be the location of future lung cancer. So please STOP SMOKING. ...Read more

New dx: Mod. Aortic stenosis w/?? Mild Hypokensis of Apex. Had a PFT /fainted p 2nd MDI dose. Could new diangosis cause fainting on PFT? S.O.B. exertion

Not likely: Moderate aortic stenosis (or was it aortic valve?) is unlikely to cause fainting. More significant is the cardiac hypokinesis, which could indicate a heart attack. Please review with your Dr or cardiologist! ...Read more

CXR's show mild cardiamegaly 4 many yrs. Could it with Type II DM & Asthma cause Mod. Aortic Stenosis &? Mild hypokensis of Apex. This DX A.S/HA new

Possibly.: It would make more sense for the cardiomegaly to result from aortic stenosis because the heart would build up muscle of the left ventricle pumping against the stenosis to get blood to the rest of the body, but they may be unrelated. Hypokinesis may represent ischemia or lack of adequate oxygen to your inferior heart. Diabetes certainly plays a role in heart disease especially atherosclerosis. ...Read more

Yes, aortic: valve stenosis can cause syncopal episodes. Loss of consciousness is an important potentially serious symptom. You need to discuss proper diagnosis and treatment with your physician and cardiologist. ...Read more

Father's stress text revealed abnormal myocardial perfusion imaging due to sm area of mild ischemia in the apex. What does this mean?

Test result: If I presume your Dad is the 87y/o person listed on this then the test result has good implications. The gross implication is that there is coronary artery disease present and it isn't producing a lot of ischemia. In an 87y/o without symptoms or minor symptoms, medical therapy is appropriate. ...Read more

Does Moderate Aortic Stenosis with mild hypokensis of the apex. Require more than medicine? On exertion I get short of breath. Does it Need surgery?

Does Moderate Aortic Stenosis with mild hypokensis of the apex. Require more than medicine? On exertion I get short of breath. Does it Need surgery?

Depends: Depends on what your doctor is calling moderate AS. Need to know your valve area and pressure gradient. You may want to look into a cardiac cath to more accurately see how severe the gradient is and should have a TEE. If you have moderate AS and are a good candidate for an Aortic Valve repair, there are many doctors that would get it done if you continue to be symptomatic. Watch your BP too ...Read more

My doctor says I have "mild emphysematous blebs on upper right apex of the lung." What does this mean?

It means there: Are small abnormal cystic air-filled spaces in the upper right lung. It is likely an incidental finding that has been there for years, and is of no clinical significance. However, it is possible that it is an early manifestation of a more progressive process, so speak to your doctor about the significance in your particular situation. ...Read more

Unlikely: Unlikely that DM caused AS. However DM does accelerate atherosclerotic and inflammatory process involved in plaque build up in coronary arteries and other vasculature which is a similar process involved in thickening and hardening of valves. SOB - shortness of breath needs to be worked up... Check with your doc... You will need stress testing... ...Read more

A 4th Metacarpal neck fracture, With a Knot in palm. How do I correct Mild Apex Dorsal Angulation after the bone has healed? Options? Costs?

1's is it interferes: With function of the hand or a constant pain generator, the only way is to do an osteotomy (cut the bone) an reposition it. The cost varies, who does it & where. All U have 2 do is call the institution and ask for a price. Including hospital charge anesthesia charge as well as surgeons charge & Radiology charges. This will give U a ballpark idea. It can B more or less depending on the hardware usd ...Read more

Top of left arch popped during ballet class followed by mild pain and a burning feeling. Pain around the highest point of my arch/big toe metatarsal.

Top of left arch popped during ballet class followed by mild pain and a burning feeling. Pain around the highest point of my arch/big toe metatarsal.

Ice, rest, pain meds: The injury during "ballet class' may have caused a sprain or strain in the muscles or tendons in your foot. Acutely, after the injury I would ice the area for 15 -20 minutes several time a day in first 24- 48 hours. I suggest taking either acetaminophen or ibuprofen for the pain. You should have the injury evaluated by your physician in the next 24-48 hours because X-rays may be needed. ...Read more

What are infilitrates seen in a right apex?

Infiltrate rt apex: Isolated filtrate in any part of lung is a shadow seen on xrays which normally is not there. Most of the infiltrates are due to infectious process like pnumonia, tuberculosis or other infections. Some times you need more images and cat scan to define the shadow if it does not clear with standard therapy. ...Read more

Why does tuberculosus lodge at the apex of the lungs?

Why does tuberculosus lodge at the apex of the lungs?

More oxygen at apex: There is more ventilation and less blood flow at the apex of the lung. Since tuberculosis is a strict aerobe it grows better in the better oxygenated upper lobe where less of the oxygen is carried away be the blood. The lower lobes of the lung have more blood flow and less ventilation so there is less oxygen to feed the TB because the blood carries more of the oxygen into the body. ...Read more

What is the meaning of this apico is equivocal remarks- spot film of the left apex suggested for further evaluation?

Don't worry too much: This means there is an area in the upper lung looks possibly abnormal, but additional views of the area are needed to clarify the situation. The additional views may or may not show anything of concern. Try not to worry too much, because it's very common for radiologists to ask for additional views. In the majority of cases the additional views show everything is normal and ok. ...Read more
