Unusual diseases: necrotic fasciitis

Usually you will be given a certificate that says: “Chest organs without pathological changes,” or “Pathology in the lungs not detected,” or “Within age-related changes.” This means that the lungs are fine. If any changes are found in the image, they will still be given a certificate, but specific deviations from the norm will be indicated in it. In serious Continue reading
