A posteroanterior chest radiograph showing a loss of the volume of the right lung, narrowed intercostal spaces, and a diminished right hilar shadow, to the right shift at the mediastinum. A curved shadow seened to be showing anomalous pulmonary venous return near the right heart border (indicated by an arrow). The right hemidiaphragm more elevated than the left hemidiaphragm.

MRA showing a dilated azygos vein and anomalous pulmonary venous return to the inferior vena cava. Inferior point of view to demonstrate the component of the main structures: arcus aorta (AA), azygos vein (AV), hemiazygos vein (HAV), left pulmonary arteria (LPA), left pulmonary vein (LPV), inferior vena cava (IVC), right pulmonary vein (RPV).
