The Chest X-ray Results In Both Parts Of The Lung Are White?
yesterday my father did a chest x-ray … then the results showed two lungs “it was white … guess that’s why yeah doc Thanks
Thank you for the question.
X-ray examination is done by emitting electromagnetic wave radiation to display a picture of the inside of the body. If this examination is done in the chest area, then this is usually aimed at evaluating the condition of the lungs, heart, ribs, and other surrounding organs.
Lung is an organ that contains mainly air. Therefore, in an x-ray examination, this organ will normally appear black.
The lungs that look white can refer to a variety of conditions, for example pneumnia, pulmonary tuberculosis, lung abscess, pleural effusion, pulmonary fibrosis, benign or malignant tumors in the lungs, bronchhiectasis, hematothorax, pneumothorax, and so on.
Knowing exactly what causes the whiteness of the two lung fields that your father experienced is not enough to do with just brief information like this. Need to be clarified again, on the x-ray examination, which lung area exactly looks vaginal discharge? Is the white even or just white dots? Is the white border sharp or blunt? Are there any other abnormalities found on the x-ray examination? At the interview, were there certain complaints that your father experienced? In addition, in physical examination or other support, are there certain abnormalities that are found?
Ideally, you need to consult the results of the X-ray examination directly to the doctor or specialist in internal medicine who treats your father. That way, the doctor can certainly establish the right diagnosis for his condition, then give him the best treatment.
Hope this helps ...
