Answered by Dr. Ganesh Sanap 1 hour later
Hi, welcome
Non-specific lung opacities has mutiple causes. It may be due to crowding of vessels, fibrosis due to old infection, thickening of lung parenchyma or any active infection. However it has to corelate with clinical symptom of patient. If you are asymptomatic then no need to worry.
It is not related to divericulosis or broken wrist at all. It is different pathology.
Hope i have answered your query. If you want further information, please mention your clinical profile in follow up question.

Good Day My son has been suffering for almost a year now with hyperinflation, shortness of breath when active and low saturation levels if not permanently on oxygen. He has some form of fibrosis of the lungs from previous infections. He has never had a proper diagnosis of what his condition is but it appears that he has some form of pulmonary dysplasia possibly asthma but he has never been well enough to make a proper diagnosis for asthma. He has very sensitive airways and the right middle lobe of his lung is partially collapsed but we have been told that for the amount of lung that has collapsed, his hyperinflation and shortness of breath seems to be far to much. He is on bronchiole dialators, almost always on antibiotics because he seems to catch any infection very easily and is on permanent oxygen. He will be 3 in March. Is there anything that you can recommend I can do, or something you can suggest that maybe the doctors he has been seeing have maybe overseen, please I am desperate to get my son better. Kind Regards, Steve
