Is pulmonary hyperaeration indicative of emphysema?
Better to get done PFT (Pulmonary Function Test).
Emphysema is functional term. It is diagnosed only if PFT (Pulmonary Function Test) is showing obstructive defect.
So better to consult pulmonologist and get done a clinical examination of the respiratory system and PFT (Pulmonary Function Test).
If PFT is showing obstructive defect then it is possible that you are having emphysema.
Please let me know if you have already undergone PFT.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Get done PFT.
Yes, you should definitely get done PFT. It is a must for the diagnosis of asthma. Also, let me know your sputum report.
