Fluorography light - study of the chest with the help of X-rays penetrating the lung tissue and carrying on the film by means of fluorescent microscopic particles of light drawing.
Conducted research to people over 18 years. The frequency of the meeting - no more than 1 time per year. This rule applies only to conduct fluorography healthy lungs when further examination is required.
It is believed that photoroentgenography light - not enough informative survey, but made with the help of data allow us to identify the changes in the structure of the lung tissue and become a pretext for further, more detailed examination.
Thoracic organs differently absorb radiation, so the picture looks uneven. Heart, bronchi and bronchioles look bright spots, if the lungs healthy lung tissue photoroentgenography displays homogeneous and uniform. But if the inflammation in the lungs, for fluorography, depending on the nature of changes in the inflamed tissue will be visible or darkening - the density of lung tissue increased, or will be seen lightening portions - Air fabric is quite high.
Fluorography light smoker
It is found that the changes in the lungs and airways occur unnoticed even after the first cigarette smoked. Therefore, smokers - people who are at increased risk for diseases of the lung, it is strongly recommended to pass fluorography light year.
Not always fluorography light smoker can show the development of a pathological process in an early stage - in most cases it does not begin with the lungs and bronchial tree, but, nevertheless, such a study reveals tumor and seals in the lung tissue that appeared in the lung cavities liquid, thickening of the walls of the bronchi.
Overstate the importance of the passage of such a survey smoker difficult: early detection using fluoroscopy pneumonia, it gives the opportunity to appoint as soon as possible the necessary treatment and avoid serious consequences.
Explanation fluorogram after undergoing lung fluorography
The results of x-rays are usually prepared a few days, then received photofluorogram considering radiologist and in the event that was held photoroentgenography healthy lungs, the further examination of the patient is not sent. Otherwise, if the radiologist detected changes of the lung tissue, a person can send to refine the diagnosis for X-rays or tuberculosis dispensary.
For photographs obtained after lung fluoroscopy, radiologist attached conclusion, which can mean such statements:
roots expanded sealed. Roots easily formed lymph nodes and blood vessels, pulmonary artery and Vienna, main bronchus, bronchial arteries. The seal in this area in general good health indicates bronchitis, pneumonia, and other inflammatory possibly chronic processes.
Roots tyazhisty. Most often, such a conclusion drawn after a lung x-rays indicate bronchitis or other acute / chronic process. Such a change of the lung tissue is often found in the lungs of the smoker fluoroscopy.
Increased vascular (pulmonary) pattern. Pulmonary drawing form the shadows of the veins and arteries of the lungs and if the blood supply due to inflammation of effort, and it can and bronchitis, and the initial stage of cancer, and pneumonia on x-rays clearly that vascular pattern stands out too. In addition, x-rays revealed to light amplification pattern may also indicate problems of the cardiovascular system.
Fibrous tissue. Detected connective tissue in the lung suggests that the earlier a person suffered lung disease. It could be a trauma, infection or surgery. Despite the fact that such a conclusion indicating a loss of part of the lung tissue, this result often gives fluorography healthy lungs.
Focal shadows. So called light shaded area on fluorogram up to 1 cm. If the centers are found in the lower and middle parts of the lungs, it may be pneumonia. In severe inflammation indicates the wording in the conclusion of fluoroscopy light "rough edges", "merging of the shadows", "increased vascular pattern." If the centers of large flat and dense, then the inflammatory process is declining. If the centers are found in the upper regions of the lungs, it may indicate tuberculosis.
Calcifications. So called round shaped shade reminiscent of bone density. Dangers such phenomena do not represent, but only say that the patient had contact with patients with pneumonia, tuberculosis, infected with parasites, etc., but the body is not given to develop infections and bacterial pathogens isolated by deposits of calcium salts.
Plevroapikalnye peels, spikes. Detected on fluorography lung structure of connective tissue - adhesions, in most cases do not require treatment, but only indicate pleural inflammation in the past. Sometimes adhesions cause pain, in this case, seek medical help. Plevroapikalnymi called thickening layers of tops of the lungs, and they also point to the fact that the man suffered inflammation affecting the pleura (most frequently tuberculosis).
Sinus sealed or free. Pleural sinuses - is formed by the folds of pleural cavity. If the lungs are healthy, fluoroscopy shows that the sinuses are free. But sometimes there is accumulation of fluid (in this case the treatment is required) or welded spikes.
Changes in the diaphragm. Such a conclusion after fluorography given in the lung when a person is detected anomaly of the diaphragm, which could develop due to bad heredity, obesity, strain spikes, after suffering pleurisy, liver disease, esophagus, stomach, or intestines. In this case, usually prescribed additional examination.
The shadow of the mediastinum is shifted or expanded. Mediastinum called the space between the lungs and organs in it are - is the aorta, esophagus, heart, trachea, lymph vessels, nodes, thymus gland. Expansion mediastinum shadow is observed due to enlargement of the heart, hypertension, congestive heart failure, myocarditis. Mediastinal shift can indicate uneven accumulation of air or fluid in the pleura, large tumors in the lung. This conclusion fluoroscopy light indicates that you should immediately go further examination and treatment.
