Chest X-ray Examination Results?
… I want to ask: In my results, there is written aortic extension. Sinus costophrenicus right and left acute. No visible infiltrate or soft tissue mass in the right / left lung. Correct bronchovasculer. Please answer. Thanks.
Hello Silvia, thank you for asking.
Based on your x-ray results:
Visible aortic elongation (aortic elongation). The aorta is the main blood vessel that comes out of the left heart chamber. The oxygen-rich blood pumped by the heart will enter the aorta and then flow throughout the body. Aortic elongation is sometimes accompanied by dilation (dilation). These conditions can be related to heart problems or not. For example in chronic hypertension conditions. The ends of the diaphragm do not appear abnormal. The diaphragm is the main respiratory muscle located between the chest cavity and the abdominal cavity. In certain conditions such as pleural effusion, the corner of the diaphragm will be blunt. Lung tissue looks normal, does not appear fluid or mass. Lung patterns well illustrate that there is no process of infection and inflammation of the lungs. It is better if you bring this result back to the treating doctor. The doctor will match your physical examination with the radiological results. Based on both, the doctor will determine the correct diagnosis and management.
Hopefully this explanation can be useful. Regards.
