Caption: Pulmonary oedema. Coloured frontal chest X-ray of a 66-year-old woman with acute pulmonary oedema (bottom left) of her right lung (left). Pulmonary oedema is the accumulation of fluid in the lung. The fluid blocks the passage of the X-rays and therefore shows up as a coloured area in the image. The left lung (dark patch, right) is unaffected and shows the normal appearance of a lung in an X-ray. Pulmonary oedema may be caused through failure of the heart to remove fluid from the lung circulation (cardiogenic pulmonary oedema), or through a direct injury to the lung itself (noncardiogenic pulmonary oedema). Treatment focuses on increasing lung function and removing the cause of the problem.
