      CXR AP view reveals enlarged bilateral pulmonary arteries and Lateral view shows reduced retrosternal space due to enlarged RV. Finding represent features of Pulmonary arterial hypertension.

      There is increased cardiothoracic ratio, interstitial pattern and widening of the hila bilaterally.Regarding the clinical information (orthopnea) I would suggest interstitium pulmonary edema. Heart echo next
