Overview

Chest X Ray

  • Although many patients present with normal CXRs, 36% of adults develop multilobar infiltrates, more commonly in the lower lobes, within several hours to several days of admission.
    • Additionally, pleural effusions are seen in 21-35%.
      • These tend to be exudative with a predominance of polys.
