Nudules in Lungs

Radiologist reported
Findings:No evidence of mediastinal or axillary lymphadenopathy. The central airways are patent. The heart is normal in size. No pleural abnormality. Evaluation of the lung parenchyma demonstrates a 4.7 mm in diameternodule in the right lower (image 29). Tiny fissural nodule in the left(image 25). Small left lower lobe pulmonary nodule (image 40). Tiny leftlower lobe pulmonary nodule but this image 43). Tiny subpleural noduleleft lower lobe (image 45). Interval decrease in size previouslyidentified in the left lower lobe (image 39). Evaluation of the upper abdomen is limited due to lack of IV contrast. The regional skeleton is unremarkable. Impression:1. Previously noted dominant nodule in the left lower lobe is decreasedin size in the interval. This could be related to infectious/inflammatoryetiologies. However other tiny nodules in the left lower lobe remainstable. There are other nodules in the right lung which were not includedin the prior study. The largest measures 4.7 mm in diameter. If risk forlung cancer is high, 6-12 month followup is recommended.
