portion
Explanation:
As you've probably figured out by now, you can do without the mysterious "pala", or assume they meant 'parte'.

By reading the whole paragraph, I'd say you can translate it pretty safely as "portion":

[mild thickening of the inferior portion of the major interlobar fissure]

Buon lavoro
