Explanation:
Radionodulär*e* Zeichnungsvermehrung = nodular streaking
[There seems to be a typo in the source text quoted by the asker: "Radionodulär Zeichnungsvermehrung"]


A positive chest x-ray showing prominent bi-basilar ***nodular streaking*** confirms your exposure to asbestos.

The source text mentions "fibrotische Lungengerüstveränderungen". If the diagnosis is asbestosis, it makes my answer suggestion even more plausible.

Asbestos fibers are inhaled and accumulate around small airway passages in the lungs called bronchioles. The lungs react by forming small masses of scar tissue (***fibrosis***) along with the formation of calcified ***nodules*** in the lower lung fields. A doctor can usually diagnose asbestosis on chest x-ray.
