Thanks for writing to HCM

Apico lordotic view is a special view to visualize apical areas because apical area is overlapped by many bony structures like clavicle,bony ribs.
Report shows fibrosis in right upper zone.Fibrosis is sequel of infection and it is formed during healing process of infection.It doesn't require any treatment unless it compromises pulmonary functions.
So,findings are not serious at all.

Hope i have answered your query.
Get well soon.

Take Care
