There is a left apical, pleural-based opacity which measures 8 x 6.5cm which is consistent with an apical haematoma given the clinical background.
Diffuse, bilateral pulmonary infiltrates are present.
Right internal jugular CVC, endotracheal tube and nasogastric tube are all visualised and in appropriate position. Right intercostal catheter is present with small residual pneumothorax.
