Thank you Leily for the question.
I try to help answer.
Please note in advance, to diagnose or determine an illness, doctors not only refer to certain laboratory results, but require questions and answers about complaints that are experienced and direct physical examination.
From the results of X-rays, it can be concluded that the condition of the heart is within normal limits, meaning there is no swelling or widening of the heart. Meanwhile, for the lungs there is an infiltrate. Infiltrates are substances that are denser than air, which can indicate mucus, pus, blood, which should not be present in the lungs. Infiltrart can indicate pneumonia, tuberculosis, other lung infections, lung damage. From the x-ray results also mentioned that the impression of bilateral pneumonia, meaning that there is infection in both lungs, both right and left lungs. Henceforth further examinations, such as questions and answers about complaints, physical examinations, and blood tests, should be consulted to the doctor about it.
Hope this helps, thank you.
