Subsegmental Atelectasis Lung Bases
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
Partial Collapse: The lingula is the lower anterior (front) portion of the left upper lobe of the lung that corresponds to the right middle lobe. Atelectasis is collapse of a portion of the lung. So, subsegmental atelectasis means that portions of lung segments of the lingula are incompletely aerated. May indicate bronchial blockage, poor breathing, or even early 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
Xray results showed perihilarbronchial wall thickening w/ perihliar densities w/out evidence of pleural effusion, focal consolidation or pneumothorax?
Patchy subpleural parenchymal scars in both apies on right lung middle segmental lobe and inferior lingular ligament?
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
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
Chesty cough>6wk,X-ray show lung well expanded no collapse/consolidation.licency of lung marking within both upper lobes.is it serious?clear phlegm.
Xray result:Prominent perihilar interstitial markings suggesting bronchitis.No superimposed infiltrate or atelectasis.I thought bronchitis didn't show?
Subtile finding: Normal bronchial walls are hard to see on a chest x ray (arrows in pic). If they are thickened one can see them a little more. Even so, it is a tough call so we say "suggestive of" to say we really are not sure, but we see enough to be more than just a little suspicious. For complete eval of lung tissue we do high resolution CT. "Bronchitis" is a clinical diagnosis, though, so listen to your Dr. ...Read more
Lung Cavity Causes: Not at all! differential DX of cavitation on chest x-ray: 1 caveating pneumonia: s aureus, gram-negative bacilli (klebsiella, pseudomonas, legionella), anaerobes, mycobacteria, fungi, pneumocystis. 2 septic emboli, bacterial or fungal. 3 wegener's granulomatosis or pulmonary infarction 4 infected bullae or cysts. 5 cancer: primary or secondary. Clearly, your doctor will help sort these out. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Goodmorning. Which are the differences between pleural effusion end pulmonary edema on lung auscultation?
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
Linear opacities in the lung base are noted compatible with subsegmental atelectasis?meaning (asthma, cough, flem, no fever, seen specialist asthma
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
Chest xray: hyperinflation of lung fields with relative peripheral oligaemic lung fields.Features in keeping with emphysematous change. Pls explain?
Patience: Chest tube drainage/evacuation will often resolve pressure imbalance instantly. The hole in the lung from trauma or spontaneous collapse can potentially seal in just a few days (like a scab). The lung tissue takes longer to fully heal, depending on type of injury. If from trauma, associated chest wall injury (rib fractures, etc...) as well as chest tube site may take weeks to months to heal. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Chest X-ray Hyperinflamed lung and perihilar bronchitis changes are seen.No acute pulmonary or pleural disease.25 year,non smoker,Please explain findi?
Might be normal: I obviously have to make some assumptions without seeing the films myself. First, I believe that "hyperinflated" was meant instead of hyperinflamed, as it is a more common term. It is used often when lungs appear over expanded.Although it sometimes suggests air trapping seen in asthma, or copd... It tends to be overused...and is often seen in normal people who are able to take a very Deep breath ...Read more
