Welcome to HCM,
Please understand every investigation needs to be correlated clinically,this report points towards enlargement of heart wit heart failure features and subpulmonic effusion may be confirmed with lateral decubitus view and Chest ultra sonography.
Please visit your Physician who need to find out cause and treat accordingly.
Cardiomegaly may be due to High BP,coronary heart disease, valvular heart disease.
Take Care
Good Luck
