How to interpret chest x-ray?

My chest xray result is 'suspicious left infraclavicular opacities. Suggest apico lordotic view'. I did a seond xray and the result is 'lordotic view of upper left lobe shows no demonstrable infiltrates.' I treated for primary complex for 6months 9 years ago.

Thanks for writing to HCM

Your report suggests that infection is healed now.
There are no sign of infection is apical region of lungs.
It is confirmed by taking apico lordotic view.It is a special view for apical region of lungs because in normal PA view,apical region is covered by many bony structures.
Hope i have answered your query.

Take Care
