Indications for chest x-ray in lymphadenopathy:[1]

Bihilar lymphadenopathy is a radiographic term that describes the enlargement of mediastinal lymph nodes. It is easy and most commonly identified by a chest x-ray. Assessment for lung tuberculosis in children with Positive isolated Tuberculin Skin Test should primarily be generated with a chest X-ray. There is no need for a routine thoracic CT scan for Asymptomatic patients with just hilar lymphadenopathy in the chest X-ray. Patients with positive Chest X-ray results for tuberculosis were classified as positive. Hilar or mediastinal lymphadenopathy, consolidation, atelectasis, pleural effusions, and miliary TB are all CXR findings of TB in pediatric patients. The most popular lymphadenopathy in children is hilar/mediastinal lymphadenopathy. [2]
