Impression: An overview of bronchitis with secondary infection does not appear cardiomegaly. Elongatio aorta. Sorry before, I really do not understand about the results of the thorax. Please conclude the results of my father’s thorax … is my father’s heart or lungs healthy or infected?

PA (posteroanterior) view, asymmetrical, quite inspiring is an overall picture of the chest radiograph obtained. In the medical aspect, this information is intended to determine whether the image is suitable and good for reading or not.
While the results of your father's lung examination, the results to note are information related to the appearance of the infiltrate in the right paracardial. Bronchovasculer smears appear to be increasing and rough. Hilli thickened, this picture indicates a disturbance in the lungs due to mucus and fluid in the bronchial tubes. Mucus or liquid will appear to have patterns such as streaks and areas that are more whitish in the middle of the chest cavity and its surroundings.
Both diaphragms appear normal. Both costofrenic sinuses appear sharp indicating the absence of fluid in the lung cavity or in the lung envelope bulkhead.
COR or heart and surrounding bone and tissue are still within normal limits based on information from radiological features.
A picture of the chest radiograph taken suggests an infection of the bronchi (bronchitis) with a tendency for secondary infection. However, the impression of this radiological examination cannot be used as a definitive diagnosis without a history of known disease, physical examination and other investigations carried out.
Therefore, I suggest that you discuss and consult directly with the doctor who examined your father beforehand. Information from a doctor who checks directly will be more accurate in determining the type of disease and the determination in the provision of appropriate therapy.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
