Linear Scarring generally has got lot of differentials to be eliminated to specify what exactly caused such condition in you.Linear Scarring,can be seen Respiratory Diseases,on a chest X-Ray,such as,Atelectasis, Cystic Fibrosis, Tuberculosis, Aspergillosis, Lung cancer ,Bronchiectasis,Asbestosis,immune mediated infection with compromise,and also infection.If you have been suffering from any of the above mentioned diseases,its more likely that a linear scarring may be evident on a Chest Radio graph.It mostly occurs in conditions of the Lung Interstitium - a place that does not take part in Gaseous Exchange.PET scan may also reveal such changes. A careful History and Physical Examination by an experienced Physician could probably get you the exact answer for Linear scarring.
