Increased bronchovascular markings (BVM) is a very common finding. It normally indicates bronchitis but with present quality of digital X-rays, the sharp images look like increased BVM in almost all films. It does not require any treatment if you are asymptomatic.

Sonography has no role to evaluate increased BVM.
