Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Seeing the results of these rotgen readings, it can only be concluded that there is enlargement of the heart and also the aortic arch. Enlargement of the heart itself can occur due to many causes, among which are:
high blood pressure
heart valve disease
pericardial effusion (there is fluid in the lining of the heart)
other diseases such as anemia, thyroid disease, hemochromatosis, amyloidosis, etc.
Enlargement of the aorta (which appears as a prominent aortic knob) can be caused by:
injury to the aorta
hypertension or high blood pressure
certain congenital heart disease
To determine what disease you have, the results of the X-ray examination must be combined with the results of clinical examination and other supporting examinations (labortaorium, ECG, echocardiography). We recommend that you bring the x-ray results back to the doctor who asked for an examination or to a cardiologist.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
