    • CHEST Radiology อ.พญ.วิรณา อางทอง ภาควิชารังสีวิทยา มหาวิทยาลัยศรีนครินทรวิโรฒ 1.Pneumothorax. 1.2 Simple pneumothorax. Findings: - There is thin white visceral pleural line at left side hemithorax. - No lung marking distal to visceral line. - Collapse of left lung field. - No shifting of mediastinum. Deep sulcus sign Findings: Supine CXR of neonate demonstrates abnormal deepening and lucency of the left lateral costophrenic angle. Pneumothorax ในทานอน airจะลอยขึ้นมาใน สวนnondependent portionของpleural cavity ซึ่งคือตําแหนงlateral costophrenic angle ทําใหบริเวณดูดําลงและขยายลึกลงมาทางดาน ทองมากขึ้น
    • 1.2 Tension pneumothorax: Findings: - There is thin white visceral pleural line at left side hemithorax. - Marked collapse and distortion of let lung. - Shifting of mediastinum to the right side which is compatible with tension pneumothorax. ***Small pneumothorax is easier seen on an expiration film, due to reduce lung volume which make pneumothorax look relatively larger. 2. Pneumomediastinum Findings: -There is linear radiolucency of air density outlining the left subclavian artery and the left carotid artery (tubular arterysign). (จะเห็นairอยูรอบ ๆหลอดเลือดที่อยูใน mediastinum) -Lateral radiograph demonstrates the “ring around the artery” sign.

Findings: -Bilateral air space infiltration (or alveolar infiltration) at bilateral perihilar region -Air bronchogram is seen. -Cardiomegaly.
    • 7. Metastasis Findings: -Multiple well-defined pulmonary nodules scatter both lung fields which are vary in size. 8. Bronchiectasis Findings: -There are multiple thin wall cystic areas at perihilar region of both lung fields which some of them show air-fluid level.

Mediatinal mass 10.1 Anterior mediastinal mass -The anterior mediastinum is bounded anteriorly by the sternum; posteriorly by the pericardium, aorta, and brachiocephalic vessels; superiorly by the thoracic inlet; and inferiorly by the diaphragm -Its contents include the thymus, lymph nodes, adipose tissue, and internal mammary vessels
    • Findings: lymphoma in anterior mediastinal mass -There is a large lobulated mass causes obliteration of cardiac shadow which could be anterior mediastinal mass. -The descending aorta is clearly seen which indicating that this mass not within posterior mediastinm. 10.2 Middle mediastinal mass
    • -The middle mediastinum is bounded anteriorly by the pericardium, posteriorly by the pericardium and posterior tracheal wall, superiorly by the thoracic inlet, and inferiorly by the diaphragm -Its contents include the heart and pericardium; the ascending and transverse aorta; the superior vena cava (SVC) and inferior vena cava (IVC); the brachiocephalic vessels; the pulmonary vessels; the trachea and main bronchi; lymph nodes; and the phrenic, vagus, and left recurrent laryngeal nerves. Findings: lymph node in middle mediastinum -There is right paratracheal soft tissue mass. 10.3 Posterior mediastinal mass -The posterior mediastinum is bounded anteriorly by the posterior trachea and pericardium, anteroinferiorly by the diaphragm, posteriorly by the vertebral column, and superiorly by the thoracic inlet. -The contents include the esophagus, descending aorta, azygos and hemiazygos veins, thoracic duct, vagus and splanchnic nerves, lymph nodes, and fat.
    • Findings: Descending aortic aneurysm in posterior mediastinum. -There is lateral displacement of lateral margin of descending thoracic aorta due to aortic aneurysm. 11. Atelectasis Pattern of pulmonary collapse or atelectasis General signs of lobar collapse - Decrease lung volume - Displacement of fissure - Local increase in density of lobar collapse due to non-aerated lung - Elevation of hemidiaphragm - Displacement of hilar vessel - Displacement of mediastinum - Compensatory overinflation of adjacent lobes. Specific sign of lobar collapse 1. RUL-Collapse upwards and anteriorly Minor fissure Findings: -Opacity in right upper lung due to reduce volume of non-areated lung -Elevation of minor fissure -Elevation of right hilum -Tracheal deviation to the right
