What Is Fibrocalcific Densities In Lungs
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?
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
My right lung upper zone shows patchy fibrocalcific changes. Remaining lung fields are clear. Both hila normal. Can I work in UAE. I also smoke?
Quit: Quit smoking ASAP. Smoking is just asking for trouble. Also see a good lung doctor. ...Read more
Xray : Right lung upper zone shows patchy fibrocalcific changes. Remaining lung fields are clear. Evidence of bilateral bifid rib L anterior 4 R 3?
Consult ordering dr: Bifid ribs are congenital and usually are of no consequence and are variations of normal. Fibrocalcific disease is probably related to previous granulomatous infection. Most common is tuberculosis. In Southwest coccidiodomycosis is fungal cause. In midwest Blastomycosis is usually cause. Long term antibiotic treatment sounds like a chronic infection like one of the above. Various testing available ...Read more
My friend had a chest xray done today report shows nonhomogenous shadowing with fibrocalcific changes seen in right upper zone of lung chronic inflammatory disease pulmonary tuberculosis please tell me what dose it means?
Old tb?: Sounds like old TB but your friend should see a pulmonologist to know for sure. ...Read more
Calcified lesions are not a contraindication to working. Your doctor may wish to get a Blood Test for TB that would provide further evidence that the disease is not active.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

See doctor: You need to discuss this with your doctor since there are many types of densities which signify different things. Why was the CT obtained in the first place? ...Read more
Any form of tissue: More dense than air filled alveoli, i.e. any type of fibrous/scar tissue resulting from response to any type of infection, injury, cancer, etc. Thus all very non-specific, general, anything which would not transmit X-Ray or other imaging method as well as normal lung.

It refers to something which shouldn't ordinarily be there! A number of conditions could cause this finding which is "NON-SPECIFIC"...that is it needs more studies (for example a CT scan) to "name it"...By the way "vertical means "up and down"...The most common vertical shadow behind the heart (Retrocardiac) is the THYMUS gland. ..which has enlarged...Hope this helps!

The reticular interstitial pattern refers to a complex network of curvilinear opacities that usually involved the lung diffusely. They can be subdivided by their size (fine, medium or coarse). The subdivision refers to the size of the lucent spaces.

Not sure: I'm not sure what you are asking exactly. We don't usually talk about the lungs as being dense or light, but rather about tissue loss, scarring, etc from disease. If the lungs are heavy with fluid there are drugs that can remove some, if they are full of puss or swelling its possible to improve both of those. ...Read more
Whitish spot on xray: On a chest x-ray, sometimes there are whitish spots that aren't supposed to be there in the normally dark images of the lungs. The spots are usually less than an inch wide, and often less than half-an-inch wide. Disorders that show up as a nodular density or multiple densities include infections (such as TB or other germs), fungi (such as aspergillus), inflammatory disorders, cancers, etc... ...Read more
Possible pneumonia: Depends on the situation. Most common reason for densities is infection. ...Read more
Small lung linear density in my left lung which result to 14 mm ppdswelling how high is the risk?

I have tiny nodular density in right upper lung. What does it mean? Does it mean im not fit to work? Thanks
If the nodule is very small, it is most likely benign. Your risk factors including smoking history, family history and pulmonary history can be assessed to determine the next best step.
I would suggest a TB test and a follow up appt with a review of the CT scan: healthtap. Com/DosanjhMD ...Read more

What could be a reason for a suspicious density on the upper lung superimposed on the adjacent ribs?

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
I recently had an apicolordotic view results. It says there is Reticular and Nodular densities in the upper right lobe of my lungs.
Why was this study done? All ltest results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

Hi sir I have calcific density in lungs. I got a job in saudi so I have to cure this as early as possible. Please tell me how to cure quickly?
No quick cure: For this. If it is calcified, it means that it has been there already for some time. It is most likely old infection, such as tuberculosis, so make sure you get checked out for TB and treated if necessary. Other infection or damage can cause it too. You need to see a doctor in any event. ...Read more
Normal FDG-PET for CBD issue noted "predominant linear densities at lung bases". No concern In the note or the final impression, but is this normal?
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
A tiny calcific density in the right lung. What does it mean? What is the cause of them? Where did it from? I need a great explanation. Thank you so much
Nonspecific: That sounds very nonspecific. Possibilities range from it being absolutely nothing to being something that needs more investigation. I recommend discussing the results with your primary doctor or the interpreting radiologist. ...Read more
