Known case of interstitial lung disease.
No films are available for comparison
Mild bronchiectasis with patchy areas of fibrosis , ground glass haze and septal thickening identified in
bilateral lung fields slightly more pronounced in lung bases.
Mild honeycombing identified in sub pleural location of bilateral upper lobes .
Subtle ill defined nodularity is identified scattered in bilateral lung fields.
A well-defined pneumatocele identified in right lower lobe measuring 1x1 cm .
No evidence of pleural effusion or pneumothorax noted bilaterally.
No volume loss or air trapping seen.
Major airway appears patent.
Few mediastinal lymph nodes identified, largest in the precarinal location measures 11 mm, largest in
sub carinal location measures 10 mm and largest in pre vascular location measures 14 mm .
On appropriate bone window settings, mild degenerative changes seen in spine .
