Hello Shelva Meyriska,
The results of supporting examinations such as X-rays of the lungs can indeed provide a lot of information, but without information on the results of the more important examination, namely direct questions and answers with the patient and a complete physical examination, interpretation of the results of supporting examinations can only be done in a limited way and may not describe your actual clinical condition. . In addition, in interpreting the results of the radiographic examination, it will be better if you look directly at the picture on the x-ray photo sheet.
Active pulmonary TB (tuberculosis) is a lung infectious disease caused by tuberculosis germs that are actively infecting lung tissue and can transmit germs (through the air from breathing). Some of the signs and symptoms of pulmonary TB are a prolonged cough often accompanied by the presence of blood in the sputum, unexplained weight loss, prolonged fever, wet sweats at night, and a history of contact with TB sufferers. While bronchiectasis is a widening, damage, or thickening of the branching of the respiratory tract, usually caused by an infection, including tuberculosis.
In order for the interpretation of the X-ray results to be more meaningful, it is recommended to consult further with the doctor who treats you so that it can be matched with a clinical examination. That way, you can get the appropriate treatment according to the doctor's diagnosis.
I hope this information is helpful.
regards, dr. Delvira
