Suspicious Hazy Densities Left Upper Lung Field
Possible pneumonia: Depends on the situation. Most common reason for densities is infection. ...Read more
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

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

Tuberculosis: I'm not sure why, but from comments this forum I have the impression that in the Philippines, tuberculosis is often called Koch's infection. This chest Xray means the person has TB.

What does suspicious densities is seen in the right upper lobe and left mid lung means? Is it seious or not? Pls answer.
I assume: You are referring to a chest xray? "Suspicous densities" is not very specific, but it sounds like you have abnormal findings (e.g. mass, nodule, infiltrate, scarring) that might require further evaluation with a CT scan or other tests. Talk to your doc about what the results mean. No way to tell based on limited info how serious it might be. Take care. ...Read more
Hi...the apicordotic view result stated that I have minimal fibrocalcific densities/scarring in my left upper lobe of my lungs...what does it mean?
My X-ray result shows hazy densities in the right upper lung. What's the best way to explain it in a easy explanation so I can understand what's it.
Xray: Air doesn't show up on X-rays. Bony stuff is white. Hazy means that part of your lung is not completely filling with air. You really need a CT scan to determine exactly what it is. Some types of things in lungs that people get have calcium in it (old infections sometimes can show this, scarring). The location and the context of the patients history can lead down different diagnostic pathways. ...Read more
What is the meaning of apicolordotic view shows coarse reticular and hazy densities in the right lung apex?
Heading toward dx: It means there is something in the uppermost part of the right lung that needs to be further evaluated, unless the diagnosis is already known. The x ray interpretation you provided suggests to me it's most likely to be an infectious problem, but a number of causes need to be considered. ...Read more
My chedt xray diagnosis is: minimum equivocal densities are suggested in the lateral midfield left lung. What does this mean?
Sir... a pleasant afternoon... base on my xray, there are small punctate calcific densities in my both lung fields... how can I remove or cure this?
Based on: Limited info, these are most likely benign califications related to prior granulomatous infection (for example, histoplasmosis). As an incidental finding, it is most likely asymptomatic and no treatment is needed (there is no treatment). However, there are other potential causes, so talk to your doc about what the results mean in your particular case. ...Read more

Advice: It sounds like you have a complex medical history and a potentially complicated situation. The best advise I can give is to ask the doctor who ordered the x-ray to explain it to you and refer you to the appropriate caregiver. I wish you well. ...Read more
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?
My X-ray findings that tiny densities are noted in right upper zone, suggestive of old exposure to infection, lung fields are clear, normal cardiac and mediastinal contours. What does it mean. Thank you for immediate response.
Infection: Unilateral upper lobe densities could represent old healed infection like tuberculosis. It could also represent active infection especially if there are any symptoms. ...Read more
Left lung base nodule elongated at least 1.6x0.8 CM with multiple satellite nodules with reticulonodular densities. Not there on previous scans. Found on ER visit for pain in that area. Significant?
Yes important: Reticule nodular patterns are important for they imply a particular type of infection. You should have this investigated with your primary care doctor. ...Read more

What's it mean if CT scan says I have a 4 mm nodular density in lower left lung postero-laterally? In 2012 it was at 3mm now in 2015 it was 4mm
Depending on how: The scans were performed, they may or may not be reliably comparable when measuring tiny nodules. Additionally, studies show significant intra-observer variability when measuring small nodules. So the first order of business is having one person look at both scans and determine if the size has really changed. If yes, further workup might be needed. If no, then probably nothing needs to be ddone ...Read more
Hello I have been diagnosed with a small module on my left lower lung. A low density lesion on my liver and a 6mm nodule on my right thyroid lobe.?
See below: Such multiple findings as you describe are not uncommon on various imaging studies such as CT scans of the chest, abdomen, pelvis that include the thyroid, lung, liver, and kidneys where small sub-centimeter (<10 mm) nodules are commonly noted which are most often benign and clinically insignificant but which often deserve a follow-up study in 6-12 months. You should discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more
My husband had a CT scan of his chest 3 times, all the times it showed something but this time it showed an existing nodule in the right lung and a new nodule measuring 4 mm in the right upper lobe. The left lower has hazy markings. My husband is a former
Need evaluation: He would need further evaluation. The fact that he is a former smoker, still gives him significant risk for lung cancer. I don't know the size of the 1st nodule- if possible, a core biopsy should be done to rule out malignancy. A pet scan also needs to be done if not been done in the past- although however, negative finding on the 2nd nodule will not rule out cancer completely due to its size. ...Read more
