Radiology Test Results?
hello, I am a woman aged 25. last year I did a radiology test because I felt short of breath. The general practitioner previously said that I was healthy maybe just tired … but after I looked at the radiological results, the chest examination showed that the cast was not enlarged, the picture of bronchitis. r ncor: CTR u0026lt; 50%. The shape and location of the heart was normal. r npulmo: bronchovascular tone is increasing r nspots are not visible on both lung fields. r Are my lungs okay?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Bronchitis is an infectious disease of the respiratory tract, precisely in structures called bronchi. This condition can be caused by a viral infection, inhalation of cigarette smoke, pollution or kitchen soot smoke. When this condition occurs, there is a build-up of mucus in the lungs, which when an X-ray is taken, an 'increased bronchovascular streak' appears.
Among the symptoms that people with bronchitis experience are:
Cough with phlegm
Hard to breathe
Runny or stuffy nose
But what you need to know is that X-rays are one type of supporting examination. Which, the expert who wrote the impression only saw your X-rays without knowing your identity, your complaint, and the results of your physical examination. So that the presence of X-rays is only to support or assist in diagnosis. There are often conditions in which even though the laboratory results show abnormal numbers, a person is still considered healthy because the clinic is not supported.
Furthermore, bronchitis itself generally resolves on its own and does not require further treatment, except that it may not go away after months. People who are diagnosed with bronchitis will only be asked to get lots of rest, drink lots of water, stay away from cigarette smoke, and will not even be given antibiotics because the cause is a virus, not bacteria.
So in your case, because this condition happened years ago, you don't need to worry because now you are fine. However, if you experience the same symptoms, don't hesitate to see a doctor.
We wish you and your family good health.
