Chest x-ray examination can be done to evaluate the bones, joints, and organs in them, such as the lungs, heart, esophagus, stomach, and so on. The interpretation of the results of this examination should ideally be carried out directly by the doctor who examined you. Because, it is impossible for the diagnosis to be established without going through history taking (structured interview) and physical examination. If other investigations are carried out, for example blood tests, sputum tests, etc., the results of X-ray examination should also be confirmed with other tests conducted.
Bronchovascular patterns on adult chest X-ray examination will normally only be seen in 1/3 of the lung field. The bronchovascular pattern that often indicates an inflammation in the lungs, for example bronchitis (inflammation of the airways leading to the lungs), pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma), tuberculosis (lung spots), and so on. Not only bronchovascular patterns, a variety of other indicators also need to be assessed when reading the results of chest x-rays, including costofrenic sinus, diaphragm, heart, ribs, and so on.
True, as we have mentioned above, you need to consult your examination results directly to the doctor or specialist in internal medicine so that if there are abnormalities, the doctor can give you the best treatment. If it turns out that bronchitis triggers your complaint, then this condition can be caused by a viral infection, bacterial infection, to exposure to cigarette smoke and other irritants to the respiratory tract. This condition can be treated by administering several types of medication and usually improves within 1 to 2 weeks depending on the severity of the disease. Sometimes, bronchitis can also continue to be chronic and require a longer healing time.
