"Suspicious densities, both.
Heart is not enlarged.
The hemidiaphragm and costophrenic sulci are intact.
REMARKS:
FOR APICOLORDOTIC VIEW."

That's the Roentgenological result that I got. It sounds scary. May I know what I'm up against (or possible reasons for these findings & recommendation).

Thank you very much.

Regular chest X-ray involves a back to front view and a side view. The lungs are filled with air and they appear as dark shadows on a chest X-ray film. Anything denser than air will appear white on the film. Your chest X-ray shows that there are radio-opaque spots (densities) in both of your lungs that should not be there. An enlarged heart will alert the radiologist to other disease conditions. Your heart is of normal size. The diaphragm is the breathing muscle that separates the chest cavity from the abdominal cavity. It consists of the left hemidiaphragm (sitting under the left lung and above the stomach) and the right hemidiaphragm (sitting under the right lung and above the liver). The costophrenic sulci are spaces where the diaphragm joins with the lower ribs. Yours are normal.
Dirts that are accidentally introduced during film development can cause artifacts to appear as suspicious foci on the film. That is why the radiologist has to confirm any suspicious findings. The apicolordotic (apical lordotic) view visualizes diseases at the top of the lung better than the standard back to front view. It looks for pulmonary nodules that are lesions from pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB), or pulmonary nodules that are either benign (tumor) or malignant (cancer).

apical=apex, tip or top of an object
lordotic=curvature of the neck (cervical) or back (lumbar)

Thank you very much for the detailed & highly understandable explanation, hoseclamps. You have somehow lessen my anxiety, has made me more optimistic and has given me more courage to go for the recommended apicolordotic view.

Again, thank you very much for your time, hoseclamp

"Nodular Densities,left apex could be granuloma formation"

May I know what does it mean?

i have an x-ray result that says
= apicolordotic view or ct scan is recommended for further evaluation of the suspicious density in the right apex if clinically warranted.
rule out = left paratracheal mass? or left anteriour neck mass?
=heart, costophrennic sulci and hemidiaphragms are unremarkable
=please correlate clinically

what does this mean? can u pls help explain?

If your son has a bloody diarrhea seek medical assistance that is not normal even in diarrhea usually a bright red blood tinge in the stool usually signifies lower gastrointestinal bleeding
