Hello,

It means that the lung is showing consolidation or pneumonia signs radiologically - it is as simple as that and nothing serious please. Once it gets more organized and becomes homogenous opacity and then will start healing.

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

Take care
