    Chest X-ray lateral view showed a soft tissue swelling arising from the sternum.[ccij-online.org] Diagnosis Testing After physical examination and CBC, chest x-ray is often the first test performed.[emedicine.medscape.com] Examination of the respiratory system did not reveal any pleural effusion or gross mass lesion. Examination of other systems was within normal limits.[ccij-online.org]

  • Pleural Mesothelioma

    A chest x-ray may reveal pleural effusion with or without pleural thickening, whereas a chest CT may also reveal pleural thickening, uniform and/or lobular.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A chest X-ray showed left pleural effusion.[link.springer.com] A chest X-ray revealed a small pleural effusion on this side.
