      ….mi sembra ci sia un livello idroaereo, nel contesto di una opacità a livello interscissurale e pertanto propendo per una raccolta saccata, infetta….

      loculated effusion + segmental collapse consolidation

    8. J says:

      1. Infected loculated fluid with a collapse of the middle lobe ( loss of volume,…). Besides there is a displacement of the azigoesophageal line maybe because of a hiatal hernia.

      1. Loculated fluid

    10. Jose Caceres says:

      There is a finding in the PA view that goes against loculated fluid. Can you see it?

    11. magda says:

      destruction of the anterior aspect of the 5th right rib?

    12. juned ansari says:

      oval soft tissue density superimposed on the minor fissure on both the frontal and lateral views and also there is opacification of the RML abutting the horizontal fissure with elevation of the hemidiaphragm and crowding of the right sided ribs with adjacent abnormal soft tissue components in the chest wall….so goes in favor of malignancy

    13. gus says:

      Necrotic carcinoma?

    14. Hellene says:

      dear professor, please tell us if a patient has suffered a trauma?
