The doctor is which should then draw conclusions about the diagnosis.
Why? First, a radiologist just looks at the picture, and for a disease that should be clinically diagnosed, the results of the X-ray image can be nonspecific. Clinically means that you must come, questioned about the incidence of the disease and explored other stories related to diagnose. Then, you're carefully examined.
If you're suffering from pneumonia, first of all, there should be a fever, helpless flagging, shivering in bed, and cough. Meanwhile, you're still able to travel everywhere, even playing golf. Indeed, there's a cough, but it doesn't have to mean pneumonia.
If a radiologist writes bronchopneumonia in the report, you shouldn't interprete by yourself, let alone directly purchase your own medicine.
Indeed, now are the days of democracy. The concept of self-medicating is broadly defined. Because there's no time, you think, you can also heal yourself.
In older people, the cough can be caused by heart failure characterized by the arising after the fall in the bed. At the beginning, you're just feeling tight and tired, unable to walk somewhat distant, and often, both legs are swelling due to body fluids gather in a low place.
When you're lying down, fluid gathers in the lungs and stomach and causes coughing. This situation needs to be handled by a doctor.
X-ray images for heart disease can indeed resemble pneumonia because of the presence of white spots on the photo. So, when the X-ray images of the elderly look white patches, it could be due to primary pulmonary disorders, it could also be due to fluid in the lungs due to heart trouble.
Lesson that can be drawn in this case is, prolonged cough shouldn't always be regarded as a normal. Still, there're many other causes of cough. In addition, the diagnosis shouldn't be made by telephone.
