    Chest Radiograph
     

    On first admission, chest radiograph showed blunting of the right costophrenic angle and reduced vascular markings of the right base (not well seen on digital image).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Chest Radiograph;

    On the second admission there was a raised right hemidiaphragm and a riht pleural effusion.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Chest Radiograph;

    Perfusion lung scan
     

    On first admission there was reduced perfusion in the lower and middle lobes.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Perfusion lung scan;

    On second admission there was absent perfusion of the entire right lung.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Perfusion lung scan;
