Possible Pulmonary Embolism-Plain Film
This is a plain CXR film of 73 year old referred to us with clinical suspicion of pulmonary embolism. Chest xray findings are suggestive, with elevated right hemidiaphragm, pleural effusion and rounded wedge shaped opacity showing convexity towards hilum, may indicate the classical hampton's hump. Lesser opacification and pleural effusion is noted in left side as well. Possibility was suggested and CT angiography was recommended.
