PA and lateral views of the chest.
The lungs are clear.
The inspiratory volumes are small, and this probably accounts for some vascular crowding and atelectasis at the bases.
There is focal opacity at the right lung base most likely representing right lower lobe atelectasis.
There is focal opacity at the right lung base most likely representing a combination of a moderate right pleural effusion and associated passive right lower lobe atelectasis.
There is a focal opacity at the left lung base most like representing left lower lobe atelectasis.
There is a focal opacity at the left lung base, characteristic of a combination of a moderate left pleural effusion and associated atelectasis.
There is patchy opacity at both lung bases characteristic of atelectasis.
There is patchy opacity at both lung bases characteristic of a combination of atelectasis and effusions.
There is vascular congestion with increased interstitial markings findings indicating mild cardiogenic edema.
There is vascular congestion with mixed interstitial and patchy alveolar opacities, findings indicating moderate cardiogenic edema.
There is extensive alveolar consolidation in the lungs bilaterally, most likely representing pulmonary edema. This is probably on the basis of severe congestive heart failure but could be a result of noncardiogenic causes.
There are multiple patchy areas of consolidation, widely scattered about the lungs bilaterally. This most likely represents a multifocal pneumonia.
There is patchy opacity at both lung bases characteristic of a combination of atelectasis and effusions. There is mild vascular and interstitial prominence, likely reflecting mild pulmonary edema.
There is mild pulmonary vascular engorgement without pulmonary edema.
The heart is normal in size.
There is mild cardiomegaly.
There is moderate cardiomegaly.
There is severe cardiomegaly.
There is marked cardiomegaly.
The heart is top normal in size.
The mediastinum is within normal limits.
Atherosclerotic calcifications are seen in the aorta.
The aorta appears tortuous, a finding usually associated with either atherosclerosis or systemic hypertension.
The aortic contour is quite prominent, a finding likely indicating either an aortic aneurysm or dissection.
Post-operative changes are present in the mediastinum.
Degenerative changes are present in the thoracic spine.
No active disease.
Mild cardiogenic edema.
Moderate cardiogenic edema.
Severe edema, probably cardiogenic.
Satisfactory post-operative status.
Pulmonary vascular congestion.
Low inspiratory volumes.
