CHEST X-RAY INTERPRETATION
There are calcified nodules in the left mid zone and left upper zone behind the clavicle. *The aorta is unfolded. *Lung volumes look a little small, with no evidence of interstitial lung disease this may be related to her extrathoracic adiposity.
A Gohn focus is also referred to as a Ghon lesion and a tuberculuma (i.e. calcified tuberculous caseating granuloma). *When associated with a calcified ipsilateral hilar node it is known as a Ranke complex.
