Explanation Of The Results Of Thorax PA X?
Good evening doctor, Please give me the meaning of the chest X-ray X-ray results do not enlarge Pulmo: looks infiltrate in bilateral perihiler Sinus and normal diaphragm Impression: Compared to the chest image on August 1 August, now the infiltrates in both lungs are reduced (improvement) What do you mean by that? 6 months ago I also had an X-ray and was diagnosed with TB, now the result is being remade again … That means what I don’t understand?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. TB or tuberculosis can indeed be diagnosed and evaluated using chest x-ray examination. What you are doing now is an evaluation, comparing your chest radiograph 6 months ago and now.
The results of these tests indicate that your lungs have improved, or are nearing recovery. This is known to one of them because normally there is no infiltrates (a kind of mucus) in the lungs, and on your examination, the infiltrate has decreased.
Although improving, this does not mean you have recovered. Your treatment plan going forward, such as whether the medication should be continued or not, should still be discussed with the doctor who treated you all this time. This is important, because many patients who stop treatment independently even though the bacteria have not completely disappeared from the body, actually experience a recurrence with conditions that are more difficult to handle than before. Therefore immediately control, and in the meantime continue to live a healthy lifestyle and regular consumption of drugs. So, hopefully answering your question.
