French term or phrase:opacité parenchymateuse infiltrative
Cette patient a été hospitalisée en raison d´une opacité parenchymateuse infiltrative bilatérale et a des épanchements pleuraux.
Please do not suggest "infiltrative parenchymatous opacity" unless you can support your suggestion with evidence of English medical usage.
If all infiltration causes opacity, but not all opacity is caused by infiltration, then i'd be happy to leave out "opacity" as it is implied that the only way infiltration can be determined an x-ray image is if there is opacity. So to speak!
Category 1 - consolidation/pleural effusion: alveolar consolidation (defined as a dense or fluffy opacity that occupies a portion or whole of a lobe or of the entire lung that may or may not contain air bronchograms) or pleural effusion (defined as fluid in the lateral pleural space and not just in the minor or oblique fissure) that was spatially associated with a pulmonary parenchymal infiltrate (including other infiltrate) or obliterated enough of the hemithorax to obscure an opacity.
Clinical Findings: Rales will often be heard. The chest x-ray shows opacity in the peripheral lung near to the injured chest wall.
Diagnosis: The diagnosis is made when parenchymal infiltrate is seen adjacent to injured chest wall.
There is still dense infiltrate involving the right upper lobe particularly the anterior and posterior segments with some sparing of the apicla segment. In the intereval, however, there has been development of a parenchymal infiltrate at the right base most likely involving right middle and lower loves with evidence of bilateral pleural effusions.
There is a worsening right lung opacity consistent with right upper lobe mass with increasing effusions and basilar infiltrates. The left lung showed new multifocal infiltrates and increasing effusion as well.

Explanation: I don't believe it necessary to translate "parenchymateuse" in this case, since opacity cannot be seen anywhere else but in the parenchyme, as far it concerns the lungs (according to what I read on the subject)
