Hello doctor,

I had a chest and sinus X-ray a couple of days ago and I need help reading and explaining it. I had a runny nose and a cough with phlegm so the ENT doctor asked for a chest X-ray. I have attached the images of the reports.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through the attachments (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

I am able to view your paranasal sinus X-rays.

It shows mild haziness in the left maxillary sinus compared to the opposite side which can be due to a mild sinus infection.

The right inferior turbinates which are a soft tissue in the nasal cavity shows mild hypertrophy.

The frontal sinuses are normal.

The bony nasal septum is in the midline. Probably you had a flu attack which is improving.

Wish you a speedy recovery.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I have viewed your reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

The lungs are looking normal. Please note that some doctors might feel there is a slight prominence of lung markings in the lower zones which is a subjective interpretation and can be due to flu and cough.

The cardiophrenic and costophrenic angles are free.

The heart is normal.

The domes of the diaphragm are normal.

The bones of the thoracic cage and chest are normal. There is no finding of concern in your chest X-ray.
