Hi,
How are you? What symptoms are present? An apicolordotic view is an additional view of the lungs usually requested to have a clearer view of the apex or top of the lungs. This is to done to reach a more definite diagnosis and to rule out presence of any infiltrates or infection such as PTB. Aside from chest xray, diagnosis of PTB is done with sputum exam and correlating with the symptoms present such as chronic cough. It is best that you discuss the results with your doctor for proper diagnosis, Take care and do keep us posted.
