Hello, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com

Chest X-ray examination is one of the supporting examinations that are generally carried out to see whether there is infection in the lungs, heart, bones or organs or tissues around the thorax area.

Ideally, the supporting examination should be adjusted to the results of questions and answers related to complaints and also a physical examination, in addition to reading or interpreting the chest photo it is also good to read it directly by looking at the results of the chest photo.

Based on the description you mentioned above, we will try to help explain the results of your child's chest X-ray. On the cast (heart) image, the size and condition of the heart are normal, then for pulmo (lungs) bilateral infiltrates are obtained, meaning that an abnormal lung radiology picture is obtained in the form of dots or spots with unclear boundaries in both lung fields. This condition describes an active pulmonary infection or inflammation process.

To find out more about your child's health condition, we highly recommend that you consult a doctor who performs a physical examination and recommends that your child have a thorax examination so that later treatment can be carried out based on the results of a thorough examination.

The administration of antibiotics, cough medicines and also phlegm thinners that are currently being given by the doctor who treats your child is appropriate and it is better to continue to give the medicine according to the doctor's instructions and keep checking with the doctor so that an evaluation of the condition and the treatment given can be carried out.

Thus the information that we can convey, hopefully this information can be useful to resolve your complaint.
