RIGHT LOWER LOBE PNEUMONIA

Detailed Answer:
Hello there,

Sorry to hear about your problem , the opacity in the right paracardiac region is more likely infection, if u have fever too.
You should repeat radiograph after a course of antibiotics in 7-10 days to rule out tuberculosis.

Hope this helps.

Regards
