Caption

Axial CT scan of the chest, showing a large, abnormal collection of fluid sourrounding the heart (pericardial effusion). When fluid collects in the pericardial space surrounding the heart it can prevent the heart from effectively pumping blood. In an emergency, a needle can be placed through the skin to drain the pericardial fluid.
