Hi, good evening, I’m 21 years old, yesterday I finished my Thorax PA foro, the results are: nCor is within Normal limits nNo visible infiltrates nThe left diaphragm is a bit important n What do you mean?
Actually, X-rays and other supporting examinations are better interpreted by the examiner / doctor who recommended them to you, so that they can be matched with clinical symptoms and the results of a physical examination to conclude an accurate diagnosis.
On the results of these examinations, the large heart was within normal limits, and there was no infiltrates in the lungs. Infiltrates are a picture of abnormal lung density, usually in the form of small spots / dots with indistinct boundaries. Usually indicates an active infectious process in the lung.
The diaphragm is the main muscle that functions for breathing. On an X-ray, the diaphragm looks like a curvature that divides the lung from the organs beneath it. On your x-ray, it looks "tense." Tenting means an abnormal curvature, drawn upward. This usually indicates an infection or scar tissue / fibrosis from a previous infection.
Because the clinical symptoms are not known, you should consult about this examination with the doctor who recommended it. The doctor will combine it with the results of the examination to get the right diagnosis, then will provide the appropriate treatment.
