The Chest PA and lateral
The heart is normal in size and shape. The lungs are hyperaerated. The pulmonary vasculature shows a normal distribution. No hillar masses are seen. The trachea is in the midline. The diaphragms are in normal position.
Impression: Hyperaeratd lungs.
My doctor did not comment anything despite he underlined this - Impression: Hyperaerated lungs
Hyperaeration can be seen with asthma and may be the first sign of COPD. In most instances, it is neither of these, but is an "over-reading" of the chest x-ray by the radiologist. Hyperaeration usually means that the lungs are expanded and have more air than one would expect. Thus, the term "hyper" rather than "normal" aeration is used. It is a somewhat subjective interpretation of the chest x-ray. At your age, never having smoked, this is very unlikely to be a sign of a lung problem. You should get your doctor
