Does not appear cardiomegaly. Please help. Thank you
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
In the chest x-ray examination results presented above, obtained a picture of tuberculosis infection in the lung tissue that appears as spots on both lung fields. Aside from the typical symptoms and sputum examination, chest x-ray examination can also help establish the diagnosis when encountering suspected cases of pulmonary TB infection.
The following is a description of chest X-rays commonly encountered in pulmonary TB infection:
1. Cavities or germ-filled holes in the upper lungs
2. Cloaking or spotting in the lung parenchyma
3. Fibrotic lines
4. The mass of fluid under the lungs
5. Destroyed lung
However, the diagnosis of pulmonary TB is only based on chest x-ray examination is not recommended. Confirmation of symptoms, risk factors, and disease history, general physical examination and pulmonary physical examination, as well as supporting examinations in the form of bacteriologic or sputum tests.
Therefore, consult the results of this examination again with the treating doctor for further evaluation and treatment plan in accordance with the final diagnosis.
That's all, hope you can help
