Explanation Of Thorax PA X-ray Examination Results?
Good morning, I want to ask you about the results of my thorax X-ray of my 5-year-old son Results: Rough bronchovascular pattern in the paracardial dextra, water bronchogram (+) sharp costopherenicus sinus, slippery diaphragm.Cor: CTR u0026lt; 0.5 aorta within normal limits.

Hello Verra, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Based on the results written by you above, it can be translated as follows:
Lung streaks on the right side of your child's lungs are coarser than they should be, but there is still air in the area. The angle between the diaphragm (the limiting muscles of the thoracic cavity and the abdominal cavity) and the ribs on the underside of the lung are pointy (normal) The diaphragm looks normal The heart is still deep normal limit (ratio between chest cavity and heart / CTR is still below 0.5) Aorta (large blood vessels in the chest cavity) normal The bones that appear in the photo are still normal. To conclude your child's condition based on radiological results, generally it will also be written at end of explanation. If you only read the description above without directly seeing the results of a photo like this, it cannot be stated what the conclusions of the condition that your child is suffering.
Because of the description of the abnormal parts, it is advisable to further consult the results of the X-ray with the doctor who is currently treating your child to adjust to his current general condition so that it can be determined what treatment should be given.
I hope this helps.
