Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.

Based on the chest plain CT scan results, you have Atelectasis in the left lower lobe. This and the other findings are typical in patients with bronchio-alveolitis.

This isn't a dangerous disease and you shouldn't worry about it.

Hope this will be of help!
Wish you health!

Detailed Answer:
Hi back

Ill defined densities on the left upper lobe is a sign of upper lobe bronchio alveolar lesions which may be found on asthma and/or bronchitis.

This is why you should consider taking the foracort inhaler together with montelucas and levoceteresin.

Wish you health!
