Total opacification of the left hemithorax with the trachea pulled towards the left.
Right lung clear.
The causes of a complete white out are relatively limited:
- Total consolidation
- Massive pleural effusion
The position of the trachea is often key to the cause. If pulled to the side of opacification it is usually due to a prior pneumonectomy.
