Caption

Raised hemidiaphragm. Chest X-ray showing raising of the diaphragm (lower right) on the left-hand side of a 53-year-old man's chest. The cause of the raised diaphragm is either a disorder of the diaphragm (such as paralysis or invasion by cancer), or a disorder above or below the diaphragm. Abdominal cysts, internal bleeding and cancer are some of the conditions that can elevate the diaphragm. Lung collapse and a rib fracture are some of the chest conditions that can pull the diaphragm upwards. Treatment is of the cause.
