I just got an Xray report from my lung doctor that I have Stable Mild Cardiomegaly. I was told I had an artifact from a cardiophrenic fat pad on the right. No distention in the pulmonary vasculature. Some aortic calcification but heart is unchanged in size.
 
I've been trying to find out how dangerous this is. I've already seen the doctor since the test was done and I only saw her assistant who said nothing about the the Xray.

Joy,
 
Call your clinic and tell them you would like to meet with your cardiologist to discuss your test results.  You have the right to one on one time with a Dr. especially when the cost of tests is skyrocketing daily.
 
Let us know what you find out my friend.
 
Hugs,
Kitt
