Hello
Thanks for writing to HCM

Few well defined predominant linear opacities in right midzone and tiny calcific opacities in right para cardiac region are sequel of past infection(T.B in your case).
Linear opacities in right midzone may be due to fibrotic bands.Calcification and fibrosis are formed during healing process of infection and it doesn't require any treatment.
Hope i have answered your query.

Take Care
