Thank you for the input.

The presence of cardiomegaly suggests enlargement of the heart shadow in X ray. The cause can be enlargement of the heart due to diseases like high blood pressure , valvular heart disease, increased circulatory load , or an effusion. The vascular congestion is increased prominence of the blood vessels of the lungs. The congestion can be due to collection of blood in the blood vessels from the increased pressure of the heart, an inflammation or irritation.
