Consultation Of X-ray Results In The Lungs?
I want to ask, last April I did MCU, including X-rays, now the results of my X-rays were long-standing KP, calm ➡ DD / Overview of bronchitis. Then there is a suggestion that I consult with a doctor sp.paru2. What do you mean by my x-ray results?
Hello Winda, Thank you for the question.
X-rays are examinations aimed at detecting abnormalities in organs in the chest area including the lungs. Koch pulmonum (KP) or tuberculosis is a bacterial infection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis that can occur in the lungs (pulmonary tuberculosis) or outside the lungs (extra-pulmonary tuberculosis). The x-ray results that you submit show a picture of old TB / former TB or bronchitis. Some of the symptoms experienced by TB sufferers include coughing up phlegm for more than 3 weeks, coughing up blood, shortness of breath, fever, weight loss, weakness, and decreased appetite. On the other hand, bronchitis is inflammation of the main respiratory tract (bronchi), which is usually characterized by cough symptoms for at least 1 week. Bronchitis can be divided into acute bronchitis and chronic bronchitis.
With these results, it is recommended that you consult a lung specialist because the results of the X-ray cannot be interpreted separately. The doctor needs to ask about your complaints and do a physical examination on you before making a diagnosis of the disease. The doctor may suggest other tests such as blood tests, sputum examination, and others. The doctor will determine the next treatment that suits your condition.
Hopefully this information is useful.
