Non-specific parenchymal distortion can be seen in early stages of fibrosis, interstitial lung diseases, malignancy or due sarcoidosis, ankylosing spondylitis or radiation injury. A parenchymal band is a linear or straight opacity, usually 1 to 3 mm thick and about 5 cm long. It causes parenchymal distortion. Usually seen in interstitial lung disease and fibrosis due to asbestosis, silicosis etc. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Thank you so much! I was asking about it for my Granddad - he was released from the hospital recently, but we couldn't understand what his discharge letter was saying, and his doctors didn't seem to know what to do for him, so we were just trying to get some clarification as to what is wrong with him. Your answer has helped a lot, so many thanks!
