Brief Answer:
Is she undergone chest x ray?

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.I have gone through the reports you have attached.
She is having diabetes and dyslipidemia.
Usually CT scan of chest and abdomen are required when there is any doubt in chest x ray or in ultrasound abdomen or patient is constantly complaining about chest and abdomen symptoms with normal reports.
So please let me know
1. Is she a known case of diabetes?
2. Is chest x ray and ultrasound abdomen done?
Please reply me answers of above asked questions, so that I can guide you better. I will be happy to help you further. Wishing good health to your mother. Thanks.
