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.

Hi, I was diagnosed with my chest apicolordotic view, shows some reticulonodular densities at my right upper lung field suggestive of PTB undetermined activity. Can this densities would clear after treatment?
This sounds like the: Terminology that might be used in a chest x-ray report. It means "pulmonary tuberculosis of undetermined activity." The image suggests some exposure to TB, but whether or not it is an active or old infection can not be determined by the image alone. Further testing (sputum, possibly skin/blood tests or further imaging) can clarify. Then curative antibiotic treatment can be recommended. Good wishes ...Read more

I had ptb in 2009 and was treated and thereafter every my xray was ok but this year the impression was minimal pleural thickening and/or effusion bila?
In my mind: There would be a big difference between "minimal pleural thickening" after treatment for pulmonary TB and effusion (perhaps you got cut off and meant "bilateral"). Pleural thickening could easily represent scarring, but an effusion, or fluid collection, could indicate something much more current/active. Review this x-ray finding with your TB treating physician. More tests likely needed. Stay well ...Read more

2 years ago I've been diagnosed of a minimal PTB and undergone 6 months treatment. Now that we had our annual check up include xray the result was still the same. Help me!!! Was this contagious? Can you explain what is minimal ptb is?
No such thing: A chest Xray typically lags behind a persons clinical status when referring to TB. I'm assuming from the induced sputums they did on you. That they had sensativities to the bacilli. Therefor it should be gone. There is no such term as minimal pulmonary TB. It needs to be 100% gone. There no acceptable minimum. You won't be contagious to anyone at this point either. ...Read more
