Figure 1: Planar Tc-99m macroaggregated albumin lung perfusion scintigraphy anterior (a) and posterior (b) images showed almost homogenous tracer uptake in right lung parenchyma with extension towards left upper hemithorax and left lung did not show tracer activity. High-resolution computed tomography image (c) showed multiple cystic areas communicating with bronchi and reduced volume of the left lung parenchyma with compensatory hyperinflation of right lung parenchyma and left-sided mediastinal shift (lung window). X-ray chest posterioranterior view (d) showed opaque left hemithorax with cystic lucency, volume loss, and marked left-sided mediastinal shift
