Obliteration of the costphrenic angles due to small bilateral pleural effusion can also be observed. b In the left lateral decubitus the pleural effusion is seen as fluid layering along the rib cage (black arrows). c Abdominal magnetic resonance imaging (T1-weighted axial image) reveals spontaneous sub-capsular splenic haematoma (white arrow). d The splenic haematoma is shown as T1-weighted coronal MRI image (white arrow)
