Hilar Structure

I have had a chest x-ray done 2 days ago and in the report it came back with a term "Hilar structures are unremarkable. Can anyone explain what this means please

Hi,
How are you? 'Unremarkable hilar structures' usually suggests normal findings he hila or lung roots  are structures mainly consisting of the major bronchi and the pulmonary veins and arteries. Both left and right  hila are not symmetrical but contain the same basic structures on each side. Hope this helps. It is best that you discuss the result with your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and regards.
