Cardiomegaly

Cardiomegaly

I had a CT scan with contrast due to some abdominal pain I’ve been having because I have hernia’s.
My dr is out of town till the end of the month and there is no on call physician, so I picked up the report.
The findings, in addition to my hernias were that my heart and liver are both enlarged.
The medical terminology used was
Lower Chest: subsegemental atelectasis as well as cardiomegaly.
And liver enlarged measuring up to 24 cm with hepatic steatosis.
Has anyone had this or know of it?

Afterward, the… read more
