    Elevated hemidiafragm on the right. There is a number of possible causes, e.g. atelectasis or partial collapse (decreased lung volume; cause lies above the diafragm), phrenic nerve palsy or contralateral CVA (affected diafragm) or an abdominal tumor / distended colon (cause lies below the diafragm).

    Ans : Pericardial Calcification


    The differential diagnosis for pericardial calcifications include:

    1. Constrictive Pericarditis :
    * Infection : Tuberculosis (most common cause), Viral infection, Pyogenic infection
    * Sarcoidosis
    * Previous cardiac surgery
    * Radiotherapy
    2. Chronic Adhesive Pericarditis: Less dense with a more patchy distribution.
    3. Myocardial Calcification (e.g from left ventricular aneurysm)
    4. Rheumatic Pericarditis
