COMMENTS

This radiograph was obtained from a sixty-two year-old male with sudden onset of substernal chest pain radiating to the left arm and jaw. The chest x-ray often may show a normal cardiac size and normal vasculature if the area of cardiac ischemia is limited. Large areas of myocardial ischemia or accumulations of ischemic events involving many myocardial segments or multiple coronary arteries can lead to congestive failure and a pulmonary edema pattern.
