    1. MK says:


      Intersticial thickening (pulmonary fibrosis) with bilateral apical caps (I think that the left one has calcification plaque).
      There is an increased opacity (alveolar appearance) on the LLL (PA and lateral x-ray), so we have to rule out malignancy.

    2. MK says:

      Peripheral thickened intersticium with peripheral honeycombing.

      In the LLL there is an anomalous pack of arterial vessels with air bubbles (probably because of bronchial comunication): Intralobar sequestration?

    4. Anas says:

      Reticular changes subpleural
      Some honeycombing
      Some emphysematous changes
      Left basal tubular structure surrounded by fibrotic changes and some pleural thickening likely migrated fragmented catheter/tube from previous intervention
      Cardiomegally with hypertrophic left ventricle
