Chest radiography revealed focal nodular opacity in the right middle lung zone.
Bilateral multiple nodular opacity, a patchy shadow, and small cavitary lesions are often observed on chest radiography; however, these observations do not constitute a basis for definitive diagnosis.
The mammography of the right breast showed an external perinipple nodular opacity of 15/10 mm, with partially net outline, with several amorphous calcifications (Figure 2).
The right breast mammography revealed a perinipple nodular opacity of 15x10 mm with partially net outline and several amorphous calcifications.
Physical examination detected diffuse rales, and chest radiographs showed a diffuse nodular opacity and bronchial thickening, confirmed by high-resolution computed tomography (CT) of the chest (Figure, panel A).
Chest X-ray showed nodular opacity in left upper zone likely to be an old solidified granuloma and the rest of lung fields were clear but blunting of left cardiophrenic angle was noted which later showed on ultrasonography to be pleural thickening.
A chest X-ray showed a small nodular opacity in the right upper lung.
