Hello Wahyuningsih, thank you for asking.
Radiological examination in the form of X-rays is a form of investigation using X-rays to help diagnose a disease. X-rays are removed from an instrument and then the light will pass through body tissues and be projected onto a film. The results seen in the film are black and white. The black color is a cavity filled with air. White is a dense structure such as bones or organs.
The results of your child's radiological examination are said to have infiltrates. Chances are that there is an inflammatory process or infection in the lung tissue. Inflammation and infection (inflammation) causes lung tissue which should contain air, which contains infection tissue which is a collection of immune cells and bacteria, viruses, or fungi that cause infection. This infectious tissue can be located in any part of the lung. Your child is suspected of inflammation or lung infection.
You should provide additional information in the form of what symptoms bring you to the doctor. Is the child coughing, shortness, fever, nausea, vomiting or other complaints.
Immediately consult with your pediatrician so that the doctor can read directly the X-ray results and interpret the results. Therapy will be adjusted to the cause. While this still gives your child high nutritious food, keep the child away from pollution and exposure to cigarette smoke. Improve ventilation and air flow in rooms and homes.
That's the answer I can give. Regards.
