Left upper zone is more hyperlucent with absence of lung markings.. But for the diagnosis of pneumothorax collapse lung margin must be visible.. Adv repeat x-ray both inspiratory and if needed expiratory to diagnose

acute onset of dyspnoea is due to either pneumothorax or pulmonary embolism. Here b/l hyperlucency in upper zones but we cannt say pneumothorax. pulmonary embolism normally occurs in immobile patients.so remote possibility. Definately cardiomegaly is there with hazziness in lower zones so possibility of LVH with Pulmonary edema

No madam he is not having pneumothorax or embolism

Cardiomegaly with cavitation both upper lobes, it's pulmonary koch's, advised AKT & cardiac profile.

Cardiomegaly with emphysema.

lung fields appear normal, except with increased bronchovascular markings, cardiomegaly present

doesn't look like pneumothorax but repeat xray will be helpful. Do echo & ECG. as he is known asthmatic, it could be acute exacerbation.

hyperinflation of lungs with cardiomegaly. LVF, pulmonary embolism, cor pulmonale must be ruled out by echocardiography, d Dimer, ECG,

I go with dr ramesh rau
