  • 2863 Accesses

Abstract

Pulmonary edema secondary to left ventricular failure is one of the more common problems encountered in clinical medicine. The term congestive heart failure ( CHF) is often applied both clinically and radiographically. Technically, CHF is a clinical diagnosis with a constellation of findings, some of which are radiographic. Nevertheless, the terms cardiogenic pulmonary edema, left ventricular failure, and CHF are often used synonymously in informal discussion.
