Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

1. Mild biapical pleuroparenchymal thickening.

---- Lungs have a layer of tissue called Pleura and parechyma is the tissue of the lung. The above comment means that the pleura and lung tissue are thickened. This can happen in most of the inflammatory conditions.

2. Groundglass opacity in the right lung base medially.

--- It refers to the appearance of the lung tissue in the xray r CT scan. This can indicate swelling (inflammation) in the lungs

3. Pleural based linear opacities in the right middle lobe.

--- Opacities are due to inflammations of the lung parenchyma.

Please forward the final impression of the imaging study. That will give a brief conclusion.
