Does opacity on X ray or CT implies airspace disease

Does opacity on X ray or CT implies airspace disease?

False. The term opacity is a nonspecific descriptor that implies a region that attenuates x-rays to a greater degree than surrounding tissues. This can be due to any abnormality overlying or within the lung such as skin thickening, a mass, a pleural effusion, or airspace disease.
