Computed tomography of the chest. a Computed tomography radiograph showing ground-glass opacities in the upper lungs with moderate pleural effusions, and findings suggestive of right ventricular pressure overload (enlargement of the right ventricle and main pulmonary artery). b Computed tomography radiograph at 4 weeks after admission showing resolution of the abnormal lung shadows along with signs of alleviation of the right ventricular pressure overload. These helical computed tomography images consisted of 5-mm collimation sections, with window settings appropriate for viewing both the lung (window level from −700 HU, window width from 2000 HU) and the mediastinum (window level from 40 HU, window width from 400 HU)
