Does my diaphragm look elevated in this chest CT?


I suffer from constant shortness of breath and aching in the diaphragm area, without wheeze or tightness of the throat or upper chest. It is worse when I am supine and upon waking.

I understand that my arms are raised in the scan and that it is a stacked image CT, but my diaphragm looks higher than any comparison image that I can find online.

Due to my cervical radiculopathy, I am concerned about possible partial diaphragm paralysis.
Any opinions appreciated.
