    Chest X-ray and computed tomography demonstrated right tension pneumothorax, and an electrocardiogram suggested acute inferior myocardial infarction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumonia

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    These tests are as follows: Chest X-ray (may show other causes for shortness of breath like heart failure or a pneumothorax ) Electrocardiogram (ECC, EKG - tachycardia and[emedicinehealth.com]

  • Rib Fracture

    X-ray Multiple rib fractures are accompanied by a small pleural effusion - likely a haemothorax Rib fracture with pneumothorax - Chest X-ray Hover on/off image to show/hide[radiologymasterclass.co.uk] However, in patients with significant blunt trauma, a chest x-ray is typically done to check for concomitant injuries (eg, pneumothorax, pulmonary contusion ).[merckmanuals.com] If there has been trauma with a suspected complications such as pneumothorax or haemothorax then chest X-ray is indicated.[radiologymasterclass.co.uk]

  • Pneumothorax

    Diagnosis of pneumothorax A chest x-ray is used to diagnose a pneumothorax, though a CT scan is sometimes used.[healthdirect.gov.au] While clinical signs and obvious things, like gaping holes in someone's chest, are clues to a pneumothorax, a chest X-ray (radiograph) should be taken as well.[study.com] A chest x-ray should be ordered early in the evaluation of a patient with a suspected pneumothorax.[cdemcurriculum.com]

  • Pulmonary Infarction

    These tests are as follows: Chest X-ray (may show other causes for shortness of breath like heart failure or a pneumothorax ) Electrocardiogram (ECC, EKG - tachycardia and[emedicinehealth.com]

  • Catamenial Pneumothorax

    A 45-year-old nonsmoking woman with repeated coughing and dyspnea on effort was admitted to our hospital diagnosed with right-sided pneumothorax on chest X-ray.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Re-review of the preoperative chest x-ray film showed 8 x 5 and 1 x 1 mm bubbles at the level of the right diaphragm associated with the homolateral pneumothorax, thus suggesting[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chest X-ray imaging showed 50% pneumothorax. A right-sided chest tube was placed, and after the procedure, a chest X-ray image showed expansion of the right lung.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pericarditis

    A chest X-ray is done mainly to exclude other important differential diagnoses, such as pneumothorax, or to rule out certain complications of pericarditis, such as large pericardial[racgp.org.au]

  • Dissecting Aortic Aneurysm

    We report a case of 65-year male patient, a known hypertensive and a chronic smoker, who presented to the Civil Hospital, Karachi with complaints of cough, hemoptysis and shortness of breath for three weeks. The chest radiograph showed left apical solitary pulmonary nodule (SPN) and aneurysmal dilatation of the[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Traumatic Pneumothorax

    At our institution, we wait for a chest x-ray that shows no pneumothorax before sending a patient to the CT scanner.[blogs.brown.edu] Radiology Chest X-Ray A chest X-ray is usually diagnostic, but may miss small pneumothoraces, especially with the patient supine.[trauma.org] Diagnosis is usually made by chest x-ray.[merckmanuals.com]
