Marked bilateral reduction of transparency due to patchy, granular opacifications which are better appreciated in the rewindowed image. The domes of the diaphragm are also partially obliterated. Bilateral air bronchograms. Slightly bell-shaped thorax suggestive of lung hypoinflation.
Findings are in line with neonatal respiratory distress syndrome, which was successfully managed with exogenous surfactant administration and oxygen supplementation.
