Suffering from bronchitis, severe pain and pooping under left breast. Does CT scan show up something?

I am dealing with bronchitis and have been on antibiotics and now Prednasone, day4. I originally thought I cracked a rib from all the coughing but now I have constant pain and a popping under my left breast / rib cage area. It is very sore and nothing relieves the pain. I had a CT scan yesterday unrelated to all of this. Will that show anything in my area of concern? I did mention it to the technicians but they did not comment on it before I left.

2 possibilities are - 1. Inflammation in your lung sacs just beneath the breast. 2. Minor rib fractures due to repeated and severe and paroxysmal coughing. Allow yourself some painkillers as well and just wait and watch.
