Hello
thanks for writing to HCM

There is fibro nodular( fibrous bands with rounded opacities) opacity in right upper lung field. It may be due to past infective etiology like Tuberculosis and it is healed stage. These opacities may also be due to other reasons.

Both cost phrenic angles are blunted. It may be due to pleural thickening.

Rest of the findings are normal.
Hope you have understand the terms.
