Hello,

you'll need to check this with your pulmonary doctor, just to make sure what exactly is going on, but  scan showing PTB and upper lobes with diminution generally means that there is still visible evidence of pulmonary tuberculosis, and that there are significant changes in your upper lung lobes.

What you need to ask your doctor is if the diminution refers to changes caused by tuberculosis (whether there is less changes visible), or have the lobes themselves changed due to the tuberculosis (diminution would mean that they shrunk, or gotten smaller),

Wish you all the best,

Nicole
