Wow, he was so young. Why can't physicals tell if someone has an enlarged heart?

My guess is it's probably one of those things they can only tell by looking at it.

A basketball player at a university in my hometown died of an enlarged heart a few days ago. It sounds like a cardiac ultrasound (or whatever appropriate test) needs to be part of the standard athletic physical.
