Dear friend, welcome to Healthcaremagic!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- http://bit.ly/Dr-Prasad-Akole) and am glad to address to your query here.
There must be a opacity on the Xray because of which an oblique view of the thorax must have been ordered. It gives the idea of the location in the lobe of the lung.
It may be an old or a new lesion.(primary or secondary spread)
The length of treatment will be determined by the lesions on Xray, symptoms, sputum examination, CT scan
It would greatly help if you could upload the Xrays here using the uploading service available on this site just below the text box. You can email the reports / scans to
firstname.lastname@example.org with subject- (Attn: Dr. Prasad Akole)
Sputum positive Tuberculosis
needs 9 months of treatment.
I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily. I would be glad to answer any further queries. Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at http://bit.ly/Dr-Prasad-Akole
