Hello and hope you are doing well.

Imaging modalities can show variations in images based on the position, technique and machine used. If the pulmonary artery is enlarged it could be due to causes like pulmonary regurgitation or pulmonary hypertension. An ECHO will help best to assess any structural abnormalities of the heart.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
