Good evening, thanks for the question
Bronchitis is inflammation of one or more bronchi, can be acute and chronic caused by asthma, infections, cigarette smoke, and others. Symptoms that usually appear include fever, cough, spasms and expectoration of phlegm.
There are no definitive criteria for establishing a diagnosis of chronic bronchitis on chest x-ray. Chronic bronchitis does not always show a typical picture on chest X-ray. Clinical and laboratory examination can be more helpful in establishing the diagnosis. The chronic bronchitis radiogram only shows minimal and usually non-specific changes. Can be found a lively pattern at the base of the lung. Sometimes also found rough hues around the bronchial branching that increased from normal.
For this reason it is important to consult these results with your treating doctor to be able to compare the results of chest x-ray examination with perceived clinical symptoms. If the clinical picture and supporting examination are appropriate then the diagnosis can be established and treatment can be given. Other additional tests that can be done include spirometry, routine blood tests, or sputum culture.
To reduce symptoms, stop smoking and avoid exposure to cigarette smoke and dust, and avoid triggers for asthma if you have a history of asthma.
That's all, hope you can help
