Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you thta out of all x rays you have done the digital X ray is the most sophisticated one and if its report is normal there should be no doubt .

Still if you have any doubts get CT scan chest done , if its clear then you can show that to your centre where previous reporting was done that no lesion is there , they will not be able to reject the CT report .

Calcifications are not caused by acute infection , they are caused by chronic healed lesions like tuberculosis.

Take care.

Dear Sir,

In XXXXXXX its very common for any of us to be exposed to TB . If the calcifications are there it cannot be removed by any way . Best is to get a CT scan done and clear your doubts .

Dear Sir,

Thanks for reverting back.

Well calcifications signify healed and old lesions . So, they dont have much significance as such so you need not worry about it .
