This is on a hospital x-ray report.

The full sentence is:

Fracturas en el tercer y cuarto arcos costales derechos, adyacente a las mismas se visualiza una imagen de colección podría estar en relación con hematoma extrapleural"

What is "imagen de colección"?

    I'd go with extrapleural collection or extrapleural opacity in this case. As for the suggested diagnosis, this image is not "pleural" nor is it necessarily "fluid", I believe.
