Four contiguous slices from an enhanced spiral chest CT exam from the 17th hospital day. The exam shows dextrocardia, an extremely dilated left pulmonary artery with thrombus that causes narrowing of the bronchus to the lingula, and multiple peripheral infarcts in the left lower lobe. There is no post obstructive pneumonia. Lung windows (not provided) show there is more density in the right lung than in the left, due to increased perfusion to the right lung.
