X-ray Results Do Not Enlarge And Bronchitis?
good afternoon doctor. I want to ask can you please explain about the impression of my X-ray results.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Cast is a medical term to refer to the heart. So with the results you show, the non-enlarged cast shows that there is no abnormality in the size of your heart.
Then for the description of bronchitis, this actually explains the description of rough bronchovascular patterns, increasing and so on. These findings in the pulmo (lung) indicate a bronchitis or inflammation in the main respiratory tract. Briefly, bronchitis is characterized by coughing, can be dry or phlegm, and there can also be a feeling of weakness, fever, shortness of breath, sore throat and headache. This condition is caused most often by viruses, and in conditions that tend to be mild, it can subside on its own within a few weeks.
In your case, this result still has to be confirmed again with a pulmonary doctor, because even though it is clearly stated that there are features of bronchitis, it still needs to be clarified by digging a history and direct physical examination. However, X-rays are just investigations that cannot stand alone. By going to the doctor, a misunderstanding can be avoided, a thorough check can be made and treatment can be planned.
Meanwhile, if you are coughing, you can minimize it by increasing consumption of warm water, avoiding cigarette smoke, dust and pollution, bathing or soaking in warm water, and getting enough rest. So, hopefully answering your question.
