Hi Joko ... Thank you for the question.
Chest radiograph is one of the options for investigations to find out whether there are abnormalities in the lungs and heart. Infiltrates on the results of lung X-rays represent blotches or points with indistinct boundaries. The presence of pulmonary infiltrates can indicate an active infection in the lungs. Can be a sign of TB infection, pneumonia, or other lung infections. If the infiltrate is due to pulmonary TB the infiltrate is generally seen in the upper part of the lung.
If you feel worried about the results of the lung x-ray there are also other complaints such as a long cough, cough with phlegm yellowish or greenish. there is fever, night sweats, weight loss, fatigue easily so you should see a lung doctor to get further tests. Doctors can also recommend blood tests, blood checks, or CT scans depending on the results of physical examination. In the meantime what you can do is:
Perform a healthy lifestyle Avoid smoking Avoid exposure to vehicle smoke, dust Eat nutritious food Use a mask, especially when outdoor activities Hopefully useful
