Hi Babyruth,

The apicolordotic view is just another x-ray from a different angle to better image the tops (apex) of the lungs.  By itself it means little.  It's very common for this to happen due to artifacts on the film - nothing wrong at all.

If they do find something after the apicolordotic view you'd be likely to require a sputum analysis or biopsy.

Worst case, you have an infection like TB or even lung cancer (remote).
