Can you elaborate your question a little more. Was this streaking observed in your chest x-ray? Why was the chest x-ray done? Do you have any medical conditions that you are suffering from? What are your symptoms? Please let me know.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Was in an auto accident and had the chest x-ray after that. Have had pneumonia twice in my life.
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 7 years ago.
If you currently do not have any symptoms this is nothing to worry about. Streaking can be caused by fibrosis due to healed pneumonias that you have had previously. Regards
