Radiographs are important in the detection of relatively large aneurysms, although plain films are not useful in the diagnosis of dyskinesia and akinesia. The same is true of small- and medium-sized myocardial aneurysms, which are difficult or impossible to detect on X-ray films. This is due partly to the difficulty of identifying aneurysms located on the posterior wall or septum. Another problem is that aneurysms in the apical heart region are often projected into the abdominal shadow and are difficult to recognize as aneurysms.
23 a, b Dilated cardiomyopathy with signs of global decompensation before (a) and after (b) heart transplantation. oles eventually leads to focal necrosis of those vessels. Hypertension is perpetuated by atherosclerotic renal atrophy. The sustained pressure load on the left ventricle from the increased peripheral resistance initially leads to concentric left ventricular hypertrophy, which is characterized by thickened ventricular walls with a normal or small cardiac chamber and an increased cardiac mass.
A fluid collection in the pericardial space which exceeds 200 mL can generally be detected on chest radiographs, but only CT scans can differentiate among hydro-, hemo- and chylopericardium. A large intrapericardial fluid collection of sudden onset causes generalized enlargement of the cardiac silhouette with acute cardiophrenic angles, as the pericardial sac has no time to adapt to the increased intrapericardial volume. Widening of the superior vena cava in the chest film due to obstruction of venous inflow merely represents an additional inconventional radiographic presentation.
