PA chest x-ray
Right lateral chest x-ray
A foreign worker came for medical check up and a PA view was done.
There is a 3mm nodule at the right lower zone below the level of the diaphragm.
Do you think that is a granuloma or an end on vessel?
Both end on vessel and granuloma looks alike. However, granuloma at lower zones are uncommon.
Subsequently, a right lateral view was done and the nodule may be seen posterior to the diaphragmatic shadow.
This confirmed that the nodule is a granuloma and not an end on vessel.
