Is it tuberculosis?
CT-Scan of my mother done at my home town reads "CECT CHEST REVEALS PATCHY AIR SPACE ACINARISATION WITH FEW TINY NODULAR RADIO OPACITIES AND PROMONENT BRONCHO-VASCULAR MARKINGS. MULTIPLE WELL DEFINED CONTRAST ENHANCHING SOFT TISSUE DENSITY LESIONS IN RIGHT PARA TRACHEAL PRE/SUB CARNIAL REGION; POSSIBLITY OF UNDERLYING INFECTIVE ETIOLOGY(TUBERCULAR) " her doctor has diagnosed it as tuberculosis. She has prescribed Rizorine kit for her and says treatment might continue for couple of months. What is puzzling me is that doctor says that it is not contagious. I wonder is this diagnosis correct ?
