38 Possible Causes for Chest X-Ray Abnormal, Pulsatile Liver

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Diagnostic highlights Test Normal Result Abnormality With Condition Explanation Chest x-rays Normal heart size and clear lungs Enlarged right ventricle and pulmonary artery[] Hepatojugular reflux and pulsatile liver are signs of RV failure with systemic venous congestion. In severe disease, ascites can also be present.[] Pallor, engorged, and pulsatile neck veins and central cyanosis were present on general physical examination.[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Chest X-ray • Size and shape of heart • Evidence of pulmonary venous congestion (dilated or upper lobe veins perivascular edema) • Pleural effusion 29.[] Chest x-rays may be taken, and blood and urine tests performed. Diagnostic tests may include an electrocardiogram (ECG), an echocardiogram, and cardiac catheterization.[] X-ray.[]

  • Eisenmenger Syndrome

    x-ray; • MRI scan of the heart; • Cardiac catheterization; • Electrocardiogram; and • Echocardiogram.[] […] by specific laboratory investigations; Complete blood count Chest X-ray Cardiac catheterization Echocardiogram Electrocardiogram MRI of heart The management of the disease[] A chest x-ray may reveal structural defects of the heart such as an enlargement of the atria or ventricles.[]

  • Aortic Valve Insufficiency

    The most common procedures include: Chest X-rays Electrocardiogram (ECG), which records the heart’s electrical activity Cardiac MRI, which shows the heart’s abnormalities[] More definitive diagnostic tests include : Standard chest x-ray is the easiest imaging study to conduct immediately.[] Different clinical signs such as a visible beating of the pulses at some sites and abnormals sounds heard over pulses (bruits) are characteristic of left ventricular hypertrophy[]

  • Acute Aortic Regurgitation

    ECG and chest x-ray should be done.[] Chest x-ray may show cardiomegaly and a prominent aortic root in patients with chronic progressive AR.[] ECG may show repolarization abnormalities with or without QRS voltage criteria of LV hypertrophy, left atrial enlargement, and T-wave inversion with ST-segment depression[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    Chest X-ray In a chest X-ray, your doctor studies the size and shape of your heart and evaluates your lungs.[] With severe TR, there may be an enlarged liver detected on palpation of the right upper quadrant of the abdomen; the liver may be pulsatile on palpation and even on inspection[] The liver may be large and pulsatile. There is usually a single first heart sound that may be increased in intensity.[]

  • Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

    An ECG may show some abnormalities that may be suggestive of right heart failure. Chest x-ray may also show enlargement of the chambers of the right heart.[] Jugular venous distension and hepatomegaly occur with heart failure, sometimes causing a pulsatile liver later in the disease state.[] Other tests available for diagnosing pulmonary hypertension include electrocardiogram ( ECG, EKG ), chest X-ray, and echocardiogram.[]

  • Congenital Aortic Insufficiency

    Abstract Aortic insufficiency may be either acquired or congenital. A 46-year-old male had a congenital pathology which resulted in aortic insufficiency due to the presence of a fibrous band that stretched from the non-coronary cusp to the aortic wall. The patient underwent successful aortic valve replacement. At[…][]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    A chest X-ray revealed bilateral pulmonary edema, and echocardiography revealed normal cardiac function, indicating that the pulmonary edema resulted from HBOT or neurogenic[] […] is enlarged and may be tender or even pulsatile.[] Examples of tests used in diagnosing pulmonary edema include: complete blood count echocardiogram , or an ultrasound, to check for abnormal heart activity chest X-ray to see[]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    A chest x-ray performed before any fluid resuscitation depicted a pulmonary edema and pleural effusion.[] There was no pulsatile mass nor abdominal murmur.[] A chest X-ray demonstrated cardiomegaly with no acute abnormality.[]
