Segmental collapse consolidation rt midlower lobe Rest of lung fields are hyperinflated Raised esr crp with leucocytosis suggest pneumonitis D/d 1 covid19 pneumonitis though RT pcr is -ve but hrct is likely CORAD5

Yes dr agerwal I also think so

Rt mid zonal radioopaque shadow seen , obscured rt cardiac border. Findings sugg of rt middle lobar collapse consolidation or Intraluminal Obstructive pathology like malignancy. CT thorax and FOB would be helpful.

Valuable opinion

A fibronodular patches seen in the right middle of the lung suggestive of lung abscess or growth

Hyperinflated lungs Tracheal shift to right Right paratracheal opacity Right midzone nonhomogegenous opacity ? Pneumonia , ? Collapse ,right middle lobe. ,? Endobroncheal obstruction . Suggest CT, Bronchoscopy .
