X-ray Lab Examination Results?
Hello, I want to ask what is the purpose of the X-ray. Patches accompanied by consolidation and cavity and fibrosis in both lungs, especially right. The mediastinum organ shifts to the right. CTI is within normal limits, normal aorta, both sinuses are good, both diaphragms are tenting. Long active pulmonary TB extensive lesions, right lobe superior lobe atelectasis. Explanation please.
Hello, good evening Evi ...
To be able to conclude a disease diagnosis, it is necessary to combine the results of questions and answers complaints (anamnesa), physical examination, and supporting examinations (such as x-rays, blood lab tests, sputum examination, and so on). The impression from the x-ray results you conveyed in the question shows the suspicion of long-standing pulmonary TB infection (pulmonary tuberculosis) and attacks broad parts of the lungs in the left and right lungs (especially in the right lungs), accompanied by a suspicion of atelectasis lung (deflating air sacs in the lungs so that it interferes with respiratory function) in the upper right lung.
Once again, the x-ray results alone are not enough to be able to diagnose a disease, it needs to be combined again with the complaints that you experience and the findings from the results of a physical examination conducted by a doctor who examines you directly. Therefore we strongly recommend that you check yourself again while bringing the results of the x-ray examination to a specialist in lung disease. Your doctor may suggest other follow-up tests such as a blood lab test and your sputum examination.
That is all, hopefully it can be understood and hopefully it helps ..
