Cardiomegaly. Prominent pericardial fat pads.
Both pulmonary arteries are enlarged, especially on the right, with the impression of a hilar mass.
In this case it is most evident on the right, although the left is also larger than normal. This was due to pulmonary hypertension.
This case was investigated for what was misinterpreted as a right hilar mass - CT showed this to be merely and enlarged right pulmonary artery.
