How to interpret the laboratory test report?

I have done apicolordotic view and have these result: Ancillary view shows clear lung apices. The previous noted subcentimeter ovoid opacity projected onto the right 4th posterior and 1st anterior ribs and medial clavicle is not clearly delineated in this study. This may represent a bone island. No other remarkable findings Impression: Unremarkable cardiopulmonary findings. What does these mean. Thanks

Apico-lordotic view of the chest X-ray gives us information about the lung apices. It is often ordered by the doctor if there are suspicious or cloudy areas on previous chest X-ray. For this view, the patient is asked to stand with his back arched until the angle formed by his body and the image receptor is nearly 45 degrees. 

Some times these ovoid opacities may be shirt button or pulmonary nodules. Otherwise your X-ray is normal. so don't worry. Please post your X-ray will examine and report you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
