The remarks states that an additional apicolordotic view is suggested. What does that mean?

It is: a chest xray with the xray beam angled to see the tops(apices) of the lungs better. On standard chest xray this region is often partially obscurred by superimposed ribs, and it may be difficult to determine if there is a nodule present. Sometimes, if the radiologist thinks there could be a lung nodule there, but is not sure if its is an artifact due to overlapping structures, they suggest it. ...Read more

 what  it means if the remarks in X-ray noted that an apicolordotic view is sugg .for further evaluation of suspicious densities in both upper lobes.

Evaluation of apex: This type of chest x-ray is taken in such a manner that the top-most portion of the lungs (apices) are not blocked by the collar bones/clavicles. ...Read more

Got my X-ray result and it says. Suspicious infiltrates noted in the apical area. Suggest apicolordotic view for proper evaluation. What does it means?

Got my X-ray result and it says. Suspicious infiltrates noted in the apical area. Suggest apicolordotic view for proper evaluation. What does it means?

See below: The apical area of the lung is the very top portion. I assume what the report says was "suggest ap and lordotic views". Ap (and it's opposite pa) refer to positioning of the cassette and x-ray beam. In ap (anterioposterior) the cassette is placed at your back and the beam directed at your front. Lordotic is a special view on chest x-ray that allows better views of the apices. ...Read more

My chest xray shows that there are suspicious infiltrates and they suggest apicolordotic view, so I undergone on it and the impression was NORMAL CHEST STUDY, both apices are clear. What does it mean? Am I possible a PTB candidate?

My chest xray shows that there are suspicious infiltrates and they suggest apicolordotic view, so I undergone on it and the impression was NORMAL CHEST STUDY, both apices are clear. What does it mean? Am I possible a PTB candidate?

Often the apical: regions are difficult to assess on a standard chest X-ray due to multiple overlapping structures. A lordotic view is sometimes used to help sort things out in this area. So if that is normal, it is probable that the original finding was spurious. Talk to your doc about the results to make sure. ...Read more

Impression on my chest PA xray are: cardiomegaly atherosclerotic aorta thoracic dextroscoliosis apicolordotic view is suggested for further evaluation What do all these mean, please can anybody explain all of these? thank you.

Impression on my chest PA xray are:
cardiomegaly
atherosclerotic aorta
thoracic dextroscoliosis
apicolordotic view is suggested for further evaluation
What do all these mean, please can anybody explain all of these?  thank you.

Chest Xray: The best source to explain what your report means is the Dr. who knows you. The general meaning is that the aorta has atherosclerotic plaque in it and the vessel is somewhat twisted. These things can happen with aging. Cardiomegaly means the heart appears to be enlarged. Your doctor should be able to give you more information specific to your situation. ...Read more

Is having apicolordotic view is dangerous?

Is having apicolordotic view is dangerous?

No : This means that the radiologist needs to see the top portion of your lung ( the apex) more clearly. Unless you have recent exposure to tuberculosis or have lived outside of the U.S. This is most commonly an assessment of a region of scarring. Obtaining prior chest radiographs is extremely helpful if apical,lordotic view is requested. ...Read more

Suspicious densities overlying the right first anterior rib, apicolordotic view is suggested. What is the meaning of it?

Suspicious densities overlying the right first anterior rib, apicolordotic view is suggested. What is the meaning of it?

AP lordotic view: The x-ray technician will take an additional view of your chest to help see the apex (top) of your lung. This area is difficult to see on a regular chest x-ray because of the ribs and collar bone. Sometimes a tumor in that area can cause pancoast syndrome, but it is rare. ...Read more

What is the meaning of "Pleural thickening, left. Suspicious right apical infiltrates. and apicolordotic view? because my dr suggests this to me.

Your doctor is : probably worried that you might have tuberculosis; either active, or chronic with scarring. Since you live in Philippines where TB is endemic, any abnormality in the top of the lung (the apex) is assumed to be TB until proven otherwise. Your doctor may order more tests and if he believes you have active TB, will put you on several medications that you must take for several months. ...Read more

What is the meaning of apicolordotic view shows coarse reticular and hazy densities in the right lung apex?

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

What is the meaning of apicolordotic view shows ill-define density in the upper right lung, heart is not enlarged, unremarkable diaphragm?

Angled view: Apiclordotic view occurs when X-ray tube is angled sephalad (towards head) to project clavicles off apices of lungs to see if anything abnormal is behind them. Ill defined density could include previous exposure to TB, scar tissue, other infection, volume loss, tumor etc.Why did you get X-ray exam? Should have decision for follow up exam in combination with clinical issues. ...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?

Possibly: They may..but its not a 100% certainty. If calcium makes up a significant proportion of the nodular growth..it may be there permanently. A CT of your chest is needed for sure. A pulmonary and infectious disease consult should be included as well. ...Read more

Why am I labeled as unhappy for not wanting to conform to what other's view as "normal". What's wrong with avoiding people? Most are mean and immature

Why am I labeled as unhappy for not wanting to conform to what other's view as "normal". What's wrong with avoiding people? Most are mean and immature

Am I unhappy: Enjoying to do solo activities does not mean one is unhappy. If one had been social but now is more withdrawn and isolative to the point that it is interfering with their daily functioning and relationships with others then this could be a symptom of a Depressive Disorder, there are other symptoms such as problems with sleep, appetite, energy, concentration and mood that would be affected also. ...Read more

What does this mean(x-ray reading):slightly limited inspiration on lateral view compressing the basilar parenchyma ?

Incomplete breath: It means that the radiologist felt that you did not take a complete breath in (or the pictures were taken after you started exhaling) during the process of getting the X-ray. As a result, the part of the lungs near the bases (bottom) seem to show up more dense than the rest of the lung. Again, radiologist felt that this is due to incomplete breath during the X-ray procedure. ...Read more

What does it mean of ancillary spot view shows minimal densities in both lung apices.How long will it cure?

Need more info: Densities in the lung apices can have multiple causes. Infections, including tb, scarring, emphysema, and tumors can all cause these types of densities. Your age, smoking history, history of prior infections or other underlying diseases need to be considered by your physician. There are very sensitive ways to follow these densities to see if they are stable. There is no simple "cure". ...Read more

66 years old, mammogram shows tiny subcentimeter density within the right retroareolar breast on cc view. What does this mean?

Abnormal Mammogram : A density or "spot" on a m'gram requires further evaluation, which may include reviewing prior m'gram's, a diagnostic m'gram, and/or an ultrasound. This closer look will allow us to categorize this as "probably benign" (requiring 6 month follow-up) or "suspicious" (requiring a biopsy). Hope this helps! ...Read more

My doctor advice me to have an cbc,x-ray PA view and urinalisis...what does it means...do i have something serious gooing on inside me.?

Screening tests: At a young age, many screening tests are wasteful. But if there are symptoms, family history, or social factors suggesting a higher likelihood of disease, then such tests may discover disease before it becomes more serious. Chest xray, CBC and US can screen for lung disease, inflammatory diseases, and kidney and some other disease. It is always good to know why the test is being done. Ask the doc. ...Read more

My x-rays result is suspicious upper lung densities, heart is not enlarge, apicolorotic view. What does it mean? 
Thank you.

Follow up further: Apical Lordotic view refers to the the positioning of the x-ray beam coming from in front of your chest to the film behind you. Heart not enlarged is a normal finding. As for the "suspicious upper lung density"...this is not very specific but indicates he likely saw something that caught his attention and likely needs to be evaluated further either by CT scan or maybe follow up x-ray later. ...Read more
