These are just descriptions of anatomy.  Your diaphragm is the set of muscles that help you breathe.  

costophrenic sulcus:  the recess between the ribs and the lateral-most portion of the diaphragm, partially occupied by the most caudal part of the lung; seen on radiographs as the costophrenic angle.

Sulci is just the plural form of the word sulcus, so more than one sulcus.  

So on your report, they are just saying they look normal.
