My CXR PA results are as follows:
-Suspicious opacities are seen in both upper lungs for which an apico-lordotic view is suggested for further evaluation.
- Heart is not enlarged
- Aorta is unremarkable
- The left hemidiaphragm is slightly elevated
- The right hemidiaphragm, costophrenic sulci and visualized bones are intact.
How are you? Suspicious opacities in chest x-ray may suggest an infection such as pulmonary tuberculosis, scarring or possibly a lung mass. An apicolordotic view usually help confirm their presence and rule out artifacts. To evaluate the gastric pathology and paralysis mentioned, it is best that you you discuss the results with your doctor. A referral to a pulmonologist or gastroenterologist may be indicated. Your medical history, symptoms present, physical examination and results of other diagnostic tests are important considerations and must be correlated with the xray result. Take care and do keep us posted.
