  • Hodgkin's Disease

    BACKGROUND: Adenocarcinoma is the most frequent pathological type of stomach cancer. Hodgkin's lymphoma is a lymphoproliferative disease arising from lymphoid tissue which is characterized by Reed-Sternberg cells. Synchronous occurrence of these two malignancies has not been reported in the English literature so[…][]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    The daily dosage was adjusted on the basis of the patient's clinical response and her follow-up chest x-ray studies.[] Peripheral edema: Edema develops in the feet in ambulatory patients and sacral edema in bed bound patients.[] sacral region in bedridden patients.[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    On the left another patient with a large cardiac silhouette on the chest x-ray due to pericardial effusion.[] As a result, there will be peripheral edema, swelling in foot and ankle in people who are mostly standing and sacral edema in people who are lying down.[] , sacral edema, ascites and/or anasarca Various manifestations of increased hydrostatic venous pressures Hepatosplenomegaly ( /- right upper quadrant pain) Portal and splenic[]

  • Anasarca

    X Ray · May show evidence of pulmonary edema (bat wing appearance of hilar region) · May show evidence of Pleural and Pericardial effusion (due to hypo-albuminemia) · May[] […] who are standing up, and sacral edema in people who are predominantly lying down).[] She was pale, with ankle and sacral edema. Cardiovascular examination revealed sinus tachycardia and normal first and second heart sound.[]

  • Ascites

    x-ray may show pleural effusion or HF Ascitic Tap ( click here for details on how to perform and interpret an ascitic tap ) A diagnostic paracentesis, when only about 20[] Approximately 1,500 mL of fluid must be present to detect dullness. 205 In supine patients, sacral edema is an important clue.[] […] in ascites Blood FBC (anaemia and platelets), U&E, LFT, clotting, gas for pH Imaging Abdominal USS Liver mets, hepatic vein and artery Doppler, splenomegaly (portal HTN) Chest[]

  • Heart Failure

    Testing may include a chest x-ray to look for cardiomegaly (an enlarged heart), pulmonary edema (fluid in the lungs), or pleural effusion (collection of fluid around the lungs[] Peripheral edemas ( ankle, lower leg, in patients confined to bed also sacral anasarca, pleural effusion, ascites, weight gain) 7.2 Causal diagnostics Coronary artery disease[]

  • Acute Massive Pulmonary Embolism

    […] and specificity of chest x-ray signs 1 : Westermark sign sensitivity: 14% specificity: 92% positive predictive value: 38% negative predictive value: 76% vascular redistribution[] , sacral edema Nocturia * At least 1 of the following.[] 20%) Hampton hump : peripheral wedge of airspace opacity and implies lung infarction (20%) Westermark sign : regional oligaemia and highest positive predictive value (10%) pleural[]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    A chest x-ray performed before any fluid resuscitation depicted a pulmonary edema and pleural effusion.[] sacral region in bedridden patients.[] This increased pressure forces fluid out of the intravascular compartment and into the tissue spaces of the lungs, causing pulmonary edema.[]

  • Teratoma

    This large chest tumor causes decline in lung function, and pleural effusion may increase due to hormone changes and mechanical factors associated with pregnancy.[] Erosion of lower sacral spine ( small arrow ) and massive abdominal ascites are shown. Thoracic cavity is small ( double-headed arrow ).[] X-ray is formally indicated to avoid misdiagnosis of unexplained dyspnea in a pregnant woman.[]

  • Delayed Male Puberty
