Would you see an enlarged right heart on a chest CT scan without contrast and CT scan x ray?

Yes if greatly enlar. An enlarged heart can be seen on X-ray or CT scan especially if it is greatly enlarged. However, the cause for the enlargement is usually not apparent by those means. An echocardiogram (ultrasound) usually does a better job. sometimes more specialized tests are needed. However, if this is the 1st time that an enlarged heart was detected, it is best to get it confirmed & identify the cause. GL & TY.

Dome help. It will show heart structure and function, but you are too young for it to show early coronary disease, which would be very unusual at ur age, unless u have a family hx of very premature cor disease. The tests u had pretty much evaluated everything. Since ur symptom is chest pain a regular stress test may be even more helpful than the chest CT, especially if it is a NON contrast CT. Good luck.
