Zoom Notes

Follow-up radiograph


PA (posterior-anterior) radiograph shows ellipsoidal enlargement of the right hilar structures that differ from the normal branching pattern of the vasculature and therefore represent enlarged hilar lymph nodes. Careful search of the lung fields for a potential primary is indicated, but this individual showed no evidence of other lung mass or pathology and the right hilar adenopathy was determined to have originated as metastases from an abdominal primary.
