Hi doc its shazad, back in August I had a CTPA which picked up some ground glass opacity in the posterior lower lobes.. The report said that it's probably a dependent change or early signs of an infection.
Anyway my chest physician advised me to have a chest ct 3 months later to see any changes.. I had this repeat chest ct a couple of weeks ago.. The chest physician messaged me earlier and said: Got the CT. No GG changes. Will dictate letter to GP
What does he mean by this? IS it good news?

Yes--he's saying it's normal and I told you back then that I thought it would since what was on there before was just a bit of atelectasis--some collapsed air sacs that usually open up in time. So, yes it's good news since there's nothing wrong with your lungs
