Radiological Examination Results?
I want to ask yesterday after I took a chest X-ray photo … and there are some terms that I don’t understand, including Cor not enlarging Sinuses and diaphragmatic pulmonary: Holli normal Normal bronchovascular scorch. Normal bronchovascular streak. Appears infilrate in the APKes and the upper lungs. Impression: Active pulmonary TB does not appear cardiomegaly. Am I affected by pulmonary TB? Thank you
Hello Malik Yanuar,
The day the results of your chest X-ray readings, "appear infiltrate at the apex and the upper fields of both lungs" indicate a suspicion of pulmonary TB disease that infects both your right and left lungs. in the sentence does not appear to mean cardiomegaly means there is no appearance of kelianan heart in the form of an enlarged heart.
Pulmonary TB is enforced through a clinical picture experienced by the patient, physical examination and supporting examination. As for investigations that can be done in cases of suspected pulmonary TB include:
Mantoux test or tuberculin skin test
bacteriological examination, (samples that can be used include phlegm, urine, gastric lavage rinse fluid and fluid that is around the brain and spinal cumcum / cerebrospinal fluid). the sample is then analyzed under a microscope to look for the presence or absence of germs that cause TB.
Gene Xpert MTB or rapid test. because the results can be known for less than 2 hours
IGRA test (interfergon gamma realesse assay)
Therefore we cannot conclude your diagnosis at this time without conducting a direct examination. You should consult your condition with a doctor who recommends that you have an X-ray examination, wear a mask and change it on a scale, and cover your mouth and nose if you cough or sneeze.
so hopefully useful
