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.
