Elderly dementia patient in late 80s presenting after a fall off bed resulting in ankle fracture. Relatives report a few days of coughing. Inflammatory markers are raised, the patient is treated for a suspected chest infection. Vital signs are stable. ECG shows no ischemic changes, but troponin is significantly elevated. The patient has not reported any chest pain, but he is diabetic. How would you describe the appearance of this chest film?
