There is a moderate-sized right basal and right subpulmonic pleural effusion. Sternotomy wires and loop recorder noted. Moderate cardiomegaly.
Subpulmonic effusion is a pleural effusion that can be seen only on an erect projection. Rather than layering laterally and blunting the costophrenic angle, the pleural fluid lies almost exclusively between the lung base and the diaphragm.
