X-ray Examination Of Asthma Sufferers.?
I am a teenage girl just 18 years old, before I often had asthma when I was a toddler and carried away until now .. first almost every month hospitalization in the hospital, thank God since rising junior high I have rarely had asthma maybe 2-3 months. My question, so yesterday the midwife suggested to test to beak poly to find out the state of my beak .. “if I checked into poly beak after I was healthy / when my body condition was normal, can I detect diseases / disorders in my beak huh? Or should waiting for illness can the X-ray test?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
X-ray examination is done by using X-rays to get a picture of the organs in the body. With chest x-ray examination (thorax) can be detected various types of disorders of the lungs, heart, breast bone, and other surrounding organs.
Specifically, no changes can be observed in people with asthma during the chest X-ray examination. Most asthma sufferers will show normal chest x-ray examination results, if there are no other complications. However, in some cases, it can also be found some changes due to asthma that appear in a long time, such as:
Thickening of the bronchial wall
Because of the non-specific changes that occur in the results of x-rays of asthmatics, X-ray examination is indeed not used as a gold standard of asthma diagnosis. There is also no need to wait for a recurring asthma attack to undergo an x-ray examination. Asthma diagnosis is more precisely made based on the results of interviews, physical examinations (wheezing), and other supporting tests, such as spirometry.
Your normal lung condition that looks normal on an X-ray does not necessarily indicate that you have recovered from asthma. Asthma itself, because the cause is related to hypersensitivity, actually until now it is still a disease that cannot be cured. But indeed, with proper treatment, recurrence can be prevented very effectively, for example by avoiding allergens that trigger it, keeping the environment around the patient so that it is always clean, replacing furniture at home regularly, doing breathing exercises, managing stress well, routinely doing stretching exercises , stay away from cigarettes, and don't take drugs carelessly.
That's all our explanation. For more details, please consult directly with your doctor or pulmonologist.
I hope this helps.
