What Diseases Can Be Detected By X-rays?
Hello, I want to ask. Can asthma be detected by X-ray? If yes, what percentage is the probability of being detected? Thank you in advance.
Hello Fitry, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Asthma is a disease that occurs due to inflammation of the respiratory tract (bronchi) due to excessive allergic reactions in the respiratory tract which causes constriction of the respiratory tract causing complaints such as shortness of napasa and also the sound of wheezing when breathing.
The main choice to find out whether someone has asthma or not until now is not by X-ray examination of the lung, because in this disease the x-ray results do not show a typical picture and the majority provide normal lung picture results.
The main examination that is recommended for asthma mediagnosa at this time is the examination of lung function through a spirometry test in which from this examination can be known whether there is obstruction or not in the patient's lungs. However, it should also be noted that although this examination is the main examination, this spirometry test is not recommended to be carried out while the asthma attack is taking place. This spirometry test can not only be used to determine asthma diagnoses, but can also be used to determine therapies and also follow up therapy from asthma patients.
I hope this helps.
