Changes of old PTB

This 41 year old man came for routine medical check up. CXR showed a 4mm calcified granuloma at the right lower zone and multiple calcified foci in the right hilar region. The latter is presumably calcified nodes. He denied previous history of PTB or contact with PTB.

Can I know, is it possible to erase scar marks on lungs, due to PTB? Thanks

No, the scar is permanent.
