    Are there features on a chest xray that would distingush pneumonia from chf?

    Thanks

    Yes. Cephalization, prominence of pulmonary arteries, peribronchilar cuffing, Kerly B lines, pleural
    effusions, cardiomegaly, bilaterally increased interstitial markings would all suggest CHF rather
    than typical community acquired lobar pneumonia.

    You are welcome.
