Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, look such finding needs to be correlated with the clinical condition if the clinical condition support this then it may be primary complex, along with this other test and clinical findings are the matter of concern as long as the diagnosis is concern, else the x-ray report may insignificant, hope this information helps.
