Previous CT chest dated 8 months back was reviewed and compared and was near unremarkable.
Newly developed bilateral upper lobe segmental and subsegmental consolidative patches are seen with air bronchogram and multiple well-circumscribed hypodense with thin inner wall and fluid density within, the largest in the left upper lobe.
Appearances suggestive of multiple lung abscesses.
Right sided Port-A-Cath is noted in situ.
Bilateral minimal pleural effusions are seen.
Unremarkable visualized lower neck cuts and upper abdominal cuts and the visualized bones show no suspicious lesions.
