Would Like To Speak To Lung Specialist. Have A Question

default
Posted on Thu, 23 Jun 2022
Question: would like to speak to lung specialist. Have a question on results of my CT scan. It was a repeat scan to check nodules- which have not grown. Confirmed no cancer. But there is "Pulmonary parenchyma: Very small triangular areas of posterior subpleural
density in the bilaterallower lobesconsistent with tiny areas of atelectasis". The results came in today with no doctor to interpret. Can you help? The doctor that looked at the reading guessed inflammation but he also said he really wanted to wait for radiologist reading.
