X Ray Examination Results?
Good evening Doctor
Hello Andri 1990,
Thanks for the question. What complaints did you experience before taking the X-ray? X-ray is one of the supporting examinations whose results cannot be interpreted individually. Supportive examination is an examination that serves to support the doctor's diagnosis. To diagnose a disease, it is necessary to provide information about the patient's complaints, a physical examination by a doctor, then supporting examinations. These three things are needed to help establish the diagnosis.
Chest X-rays can see abnormalities that occur in the lungs, heart, ribs, and several other structures. From the results of the examination you convey, only fibrosis was found in the branching area of the left airway. Fibrosis is a kind of scar tissue that can be caused by various causes such as infection in the lungs, long-term exposure to irritants in the lungs such as exposure to asbestos, radiation exposure, autoimmune diseases, connective tissue disease, and others. It is impossible to know the exact cause of this picture without information about your complaint, doctor's examination, and other supporting examinations. Thus, you should again consult the doctor who suggested this X-ray so that the doctor can provide further explanation about the condition you are experiencing.
