Had a chest CT scan for breathing issues which was normal. Would you be able to see an enlarged right heart on a CT scan? I can see the heart.

CT. Yes you can identify enlarged heart. An MD should be able to tell you if such is the case. If you have the report and this is not mentioned there then likely not. In addition quality of study also plays an important role in saying yes or no.
