Figure 6: Tubercular Cavity. (a) Chest radiograph frontal projection shows a well-defined thick walled cavity in left upper and midzone with multifocal ill-defined airspace opacities. (b) Axial contrast-enhanced computed tomography thorax (lung window), in a young adult with fever and hemoptysis, exhibits multifocal consolidation involving bilateral lower lobes with intermediately thick cavity with air-fluid level in the left lower lobe. Air-fluid within a cavity usually indicates superadded bacterial or fungal infection.
