? About Lung Scan Results

Recommended Posts

I got my results of my routine lung scan. I have a 4 mm nodule and mild wall thickening, also. Do any of you know if this could be the early start of lung fibrosis?

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?
