Explanation Of The Results Of The Thorax PA / Lat Photo?
My son just took a chest thorax with the results: – right lateral sinus is slightly blunted: looks minimal infiltrates in segment 6, crowded pattern, hilum does not enlarge. There is a minimum of calcifications. Cor in the normal-aortic and mediastinal boundaries, the bones that can be seen photographed seem intact. Can you explain the purpose of these results? And what is the solution.

Based on the results of chest X-rays in your child that have been done before, we will try to explain the picture of these results. The right lateral sinus is slightly blunt, indicating that at the lower right corner of the lung it appears blurry. Normally, the angle of the lower lung will appear sharp, if the results appear blunt, there may be a liquid which results in a faint angle. Liquids can arise due to inflammation and infection processes that are happening.
pulmo: looks minimal infiltrates in segment 6, busy patterns, hilum does not enlarge. Minimal calcification. Pulmo or pulmonary appearance of the appearance of spots or spots more colored whitish (infiltrates) with a rather large / crowded pattern but calcification or calcification of tissue seems minimal. Calcification is a network that has calcified after the occurrence of the process of inflammation or infection.
Based on the results of x-rays, your child's lungs may be in the process of infection or inflammation.
Cast within normal-aortic and mediastinal boundaries - bones that can be seen photographed seem intact, indicating that the heart, mediastinum, large blood vessels and surrounding bone are within normal limits / no significant abnormalities were found.
X-ray examination is a supporting examination that helps see the picture of organs in the body, and its nature only supports the results of medical examinations that have been carried out. To find out more clearly, related to the type of disease and the provision of appropriate management, we recommend that you do a consultation and examination directly with a pediatrician who treats your child.
