Pulmonary Fibrosis due to Amiodarone a class III Antiarrhythmic K+ blocker

A chest X-ray demonstrating pulmonary fibrosis. By history, the pulmonary fibrosis is thought to be due to amiodarone.

A Pancoast tumour otherwise known as superior sulcus tumour refers to a relatively uncommon situation where a primary bronchogenic carcinoma arises in the lung apex and invades the surrounding soft tissues.  Plain films demonstrate a soft tissue opacity at the apex of the lung. Occasionally rib involvement or extension into the supraclavicular fossa may be evident.  http://radiopaedia.org/articles/pancoast-tumour

Rt.middle lobe consolidation refers to consolidation in part (incomplete) or all (complete) of the Rt middle lobe.  features of right middle lobe (RML) consolidation on CXR include:  opacification of the RML abutting the horizontal fissure indistinct right heart border loss of the medial aspect of the right hemidiaphragm air bronchograms  http://radiopaedia.org/articles/right-middle-lobe-consolidation

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) represents a spectrum of obstructive airway diseases. It includes two key components which are chronic bronchitis-small airways disease and emphysema.   https://radiopaedia.org/articles/chronic-obstructive-pulmonary-disease-1

Emphysema is one end of the spectrum of findings in COPD. The disease is usually quite pronounced by the time the typical appearances are evidence on a plain radiograph. In this case the hyperinflated nature of the lungs is very readily apparen.

Pancoast tumour - a primary lung cancer that arises in the lung apex and invades soft tissues such as the brachial plexus. Although classically these tumours present with Pancoast syndrome (shoulder pain, C8 to T1 radiculopathy, Horner’s syndrome) this only occurs in approximately 25% of cases. The lung apex is an important check area on chest radiographs. Any density difference between the left and right is suspicious. CT in this case confirmed Pancoast tumour (see blog post for details).

Pneumopericardium

Air appears around heart but does not extend above great vessels Air in the pericardial sac is limited by the normal pericardial reflections.

Mucous plugging - right middle lobe collapse:  Gross middle lobe collapse is associated with a filling defect in the right bronchus intermedius and poor aeration of the bronchi beyond.  Differential is between a foreign body and mucous plug.

Marfan syndrome - aortic root dilatation | Radiology Case | Radiopaedia.org

Typical skeletal phenotypic features of Marfan syndrome presenting as a right-sided pneumothorax but with marked cardiovascular manifestations including aortic root dilatation and aortic regurgitation with resultant left ventricular enlargement.

Sarcoidosis is a non-caseating granulomatous multi-system disease with a wide range of clinical and radiographic manifestations. As 90% of patients have pulmonary involvement, and chest x-rays are readily available and have low radiation burden, the pattern of nodal and parenchymal involvement is used to 'stage' sarcoidosis : see chest x-ray staging of sarcoidosis.

Aspergillomas are mass-like fungus balls that are typically composed of Aspergillus  fumigatus, and is a non-invasive form of pulmonary aspergillosis.  An air crescent sign describes the crescent of air that can be seen in invasive aspergillosis, semi-invasive aspergillosis or other processes that cause pulmonary necrosis.

Chilaiditi syndrome is an important variant to be aware of because it can mimic pathology (e.g. subdiaphragmatic gas) or can be significant if performing a procedure (e.g. liver biopsy) | Radiology Case contributed by Dr Hani Alsalam | Radiopaedia.org

Chilaiditi's sign is the asymptomatic interposition of colon between the liver and the diaphragm. When accompanied by pain this is termed Chilaiditi syndrome, which is a common cause of pseudopneumoperitoneum and .
