Chest x-ray, enlarged heart?
Hi, I had a chest xray today as I have been having a tight feeling in my chest as well as palpitations.  I don't know the outcome until tomorrow at my drs appointment so of course, I've been searching online.  How does my chest xray look to you?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

It is difficult to see the finer details in the picture, but the heart does not appear to be enlarged. Cardiomegaly is diagnosed on a CXR if the heart silhouette is larger than 50% of the space between the ribs. Wait for the report to confirm this.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
