Thanks for visiting HCM.
On the background of A1AD with COPD
, as described by you, let's discuss the x-ray findings.
Left subapical region means the part of lung below the clavicle
and above the nipple. Infiltrate means shadows casted by some sort of secretion in the lung, which is usually due to infection. As this was not present in previous serial x-rays this is the new onset infection. Osseous structure means bony cage, which is normal. Hilar region is the region where wind pipe enters the lung and mediastinum is the area corresponding to heart between the two lungs. Both of these is normal in your chest x-ray.
You must have been given some antibiotics, and x-ray done 14 days after this x-ray will be used to see whether lesion has resolved or not....
