Cardiology Questions Answered by Verified Cardiologists.
Thanks for your question. Yes, the scarring could give an x-ray diagnosis of COPD. Discuss this with the doctor who made the diagnosis and if it is based on an x-ray reading, ask to have the diagnosis removed from your medical record. If however, the diagnosis was made due to physical testing, spirometry, pulmonary function studies, then the diagnosis may be appropriate. I am here to answer any additional questions you may have.
