Thanks for letting us know the results of your lung scan. I'm not sure what is indicative of the nodule and wall thickening. I found on our ISN Pulmonary Fibrosis page an article on PH and ILD that states
"ILD in scleroderma appears radiographically as symmetric, lower-lobe predominant, reticular or reticulonodular opacities. High resolution computer tomographic scanning (HRCT) can reveal abnormalities not visible on chest radiographs, such as septal and subpleural linear opacities, ground-glass opacities, and subpleural cysts."
Please discuss these results with your pulmonologist. Are you scheduled for a pulmonary function test?
