  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    During the first wheezing episode in children with abnormal vital signs, heart failure should be considered in the differential diagnosis, and a chest X-ray should be performed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electrocardiogram revealed sinus tachycardia and non-specific ST-T changes in the lateral leads.[doi.org] ray.[chfed.org.uk]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Considerable amounts of pericardial fluid may muffle heart sounds, increase the area of cardiac dullness, and change the size and shape of the cardiac silhouette.[merckmanuals.com] Chest pain, sharp or sometimes dull, that may be relieved by bending forward Coughing Difficulty breathing Fever Fatigue Changes in heart rhythm Enlarged heart size on chest X-ray[labtestsonline.org] From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository Jump to navigation Jump to search Radiology : Echocardiography ( Image, Video ) · X-ray · Computed tomography · Magnetic[commons.wikimedia.org]

  • Primary Cardiomyopathy

    Chest X-ray may reveal an enlarged or abnormal heart shape or excess fluid accumulation within the lungs .[emedicinehealth.com] Such tests may include x-ray studies (e.g., computed tomography), electrocardiography (EKG), or echocardiography.[rarediseases.org] An EKG, which records the electrical activities of heart muscle, may reveal abnormal electrical patterns (e.g., resulting in arrhythmias).[rarediseases.org]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    […] heart sounds, murmurs, ECG abnormalities, and enlarged heart on chest x-ray may lead to the diagnosis.[en.wikipedia.org] Tests can be done, like an echocardiogram (ECG), or chest x-rays that may show abnormalities in the heart muscle.[sdtreatmentcenter.com] Some of the test to know if you have heart failure is through Echocardiograms, ECG and chest x-ray.[nlcatp.org]

  • Peripartum Cardiomyopathy

    Chest x-ray may reveal radiological signs of heart failure such as cardiomegaly, pulmonary congestion and pleural effusion.[joacc.com] A chest x-ray – to look for fluid on the lungs.[cardiomyopathy.org] Routine blood investigations are required to rule out anemia, electrolyte dysfunction and kidney, liver, or thyroid abnormality.[joacc.com]

  • Suppurative Pericarditis

    Patients with large pericardial effusions have an area of increased dullness at the base of the heart in addition to generalized enlargement of the area of cardiac dullness[tele.med.ru] ST-T changes in association with pericardial effusion Renal failure associated with severe kidney infection Autoimmune disease Medication When You Suffer Pericarditis During[pericarditispain.info] Dissection is suspected in patients with severe, nonpleuritic precordial discomfort, abnormal mediastinal widening on the chest x-ray film, loss of one or more arterial pulses[tele.med.ru]

  • Pericarditis

    Considerable amounts of pericardial fluid may muffle heart sounds, increase the area of cardiac dullness, and change the size and shape of the cardiac silhouette.[merckmanuals.com] Chest X-rays may be normal, but if there is a significant pericardial effusion, the heart shape may be abnormal. It is sometimes described as globular or flask shaped.[emedicinehealth.com] ECG: non-specific ST/T changes. Echocardiogram: mild pericardial effusion. Elevation of WBC count and CRP.[escardio.org]
