Focal airspace opacity in the right upper lobe abutting the minor fissure, most consistent with pneumonia. Follow-up to resolution is recommended in approximately 8 weeks, as a pulmonary mass could also have this appearance. If the patient does not have signs and symptoms consistent with pneumonia, immediate CT of the chest should be considered, ideally with contrast.
