Massive cardiomegally…

September 30, 2013

Cardiac, Chest, Chest XR, CT, Non-Trauma, XR

Patient with acromegally has this xray:

Massive cardiomegally 1 Massive cardiomegally 2 Massive cardiomegally 3

These images show some serious cardiomegally.  He incidentally has what appear to be retained metallic fragments that look suspicious for bullets.  Apparently his estimated cardiac “girth” is 2 liters!
