a [band-like] hyperdense area of impaired ventilation


Explanation:
In English, 'dysventilation' is not commonly used. Hence, 'impaired ventilation'.

'Area' can be substituted by 'lesion'.

The somewhat longer version would be: 'a band-like hyperdense lesion displaying characteristics of impaired ventilation'
