Hi doctor. I have here my x-ray results. The interpretation shows hazy infiltrates in left lower lung field. The impressiom of medical radiologist is PNEUMONITIS, left lower lobe. May i ask what is it mean? Is it curable? Thank you for the answer.
Pneumonities is basically an inflammation of the lung tissue. It can be caused by an infection or exposure to something in the air.
Your doctor can help diagnose the cause. It may be curable, depending upon what the cause is.
Pneumonitis is an inflammation of lung tissue.Medications are used to treat some causes of pneumonitis, but other types of pneumonitis can be cured by simply avoiding the substance that triggers inflammation.
An infiltrate indicates that a biological substance generally not found in the lung has snuck in and now resides there. This could be caused by any of a number of lung diseases. Pneumonia is one example. Consult your doctor for effective treatment.
