Brief Answer:
Lungs are clear.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXX,
I am Doctor Jyothi BL and I will be answering your query.

Looking at the x-ray findings, the only probable abnormality you would have noticed will be mild bronchovascular markings.
Otherwise all the other are clear and normal.
Bronchovascular findings are important when there is an infection. As it is mild, it can be safely assumed to be normal.
No further tests are necessary as there is no significant finding to warrant further investigations.
Any further queries, happy to help again.

Dr. Jyothi BL
