Note that the lower zones reach below the diaphragm. This is because the lungs pass behind the dome of the diaphragm into the posterior sulcus of each hemithorax. Normal lung markings can be seen below the well defined edges of the diaphragm.

A Normal Chest RadiographSome examiners like you to call x ray films ‘Radiographs’; strictly speaking you can’t actually see the x rays themselves.
Anatomy in theChest RadiographThe right main bronchus is slightly larger than the left & comesoff at a less acute angle than the left (hence septic material &foreign substances are more likely to be inhaled into the right lung than into the left).

MEDIASTINAL SILHOUETTE INMIDDLE AGE & THE ELDERLY
Aorto-pulmonary Window Aorto-pulmonary window. The aorto-pulmonary window lies betweenthe arch of the aorta and the pulmonary arteries. It contains the ligamentum arteriosum, the recurrent laryngeal nerve, lymph nodes, and fatty tissue.
RIGHT PARA-TRACHEAL STRIPE From the level of the clavicles to the azygous vein the right edge of the trachea is seen as a thin white stripe. This appearance is created by air of low density (blacker) lying either side of the comparatively dense (whiter) tracheal wall. If this stripe is thickened(normally less than 5 mm) this may represent pathology such as a paratracheal mass or enlarged lymph node. The left side of the trachea is not so well defined because of the position of the aortic arch and great vessels.

Anatomy in the Lateral Chest X-ray In the lateral CXR, you will see the Right Hemidiaphragm in its entirety But where the Left Hemidiaphragm is concerned, you can only see a part of it because anteriorly it “merges” with the inferior border of the heart.

THE MEDIASTINUM The mediastinum is divided by a plane passing from the sternal angle to T4-T5 into: Superior mediastinum and The inferior mediastinum The inferior mediastinum is further subdivided into three regions namely: Anterior mediastinum Middle mediastinum Posterior mediastinum These divisions are for descriptive purposes, they merge into each other imperceptibly. There are no distinct boundaries between them.
ZONES OF THE CHEST RADIOGRAPH Apex to a line drawn throughUPPER the lower borders of theZONE anterior ends of the 2nd costal cartilage. From the 1st line to one drawnMIDDLE through the lower borders of theZONE 4th costal cartilage & includes the Hila of the lungs From the 2nd line to theLOWER bases of the lungs.ZONE
THE FISSURES OF THE LUNGS Oblique Fissure From 4 th Dorsal spine sweeping down obliquely to the 6th rib in mid mammary line or the 6th costochondral junction, anteriorly. Horizontal Fissure. From the 4th costo chondral junction to meet Oblique Fissure at the mid axillary line.
THE LOBES & FISSURES OF THE LUNGS Base of the Lung: 6th costochondral junction, obliquely to the 10th rib in Anterior Axillary Line, then horizontally to 12th thoracic vertebra
OBLIQUE FISSURE , HORIZONTAL FISSURE Oblique Fissure : From 4th Dorsal spine sweeping down obliquely to the 6th rib in mid mammary line or the 6th Costochondral junction, anteriorly. Horizontal Fissure. Runs from the 4th costochondral junction to meet Oblique Fissure at the mid axillary line.
THE RIGHT & LEFT OBLIQUE FISSURES From 4th dorsal spine sweeping down obliquely to the 6th rib in mid mammary line or the 6th costochondral junction, anteriorly.
THE HORIZONTAL FISSURE Horizontal Fissure. Runs from the 4th costochondral junction to meet Oblique Fissure at the Mid Axillary Line.
ACESSORY FISSURE, THE AZYGOS FISSURE The azygos lobe appears starting in a teardrop shape at around the level of T5 to the right of the midline as a pale line curving outward . and upward and then back in to meet the root of the neck, the line is the infolding of the pleura. Also described as a “curvilinear opacity, Inverted comma, tadpole.”

RADIODENSITY SCALE Radiodensity : Physical quality of an object that determines how much radiation it absorbs from the X-Ray beam. Radiodensity is determined by composition ( atomic weight) and thickness radioLucent = bLack radiopaquE = whitE
RADIODENSITY SCALE“WHITE IMAGES” “BLACK IMAGES”The greater the density, the lesser The lesser the density, the greaterthe penetration of the X-Rays the penetration of the X-Raysthrough the object. through the objectThe film remains less exposed The film is more exposedWhite Image Black ImageTerm used : Radiodense Term Used : RadiolucentOr Radiopaque Term Density Appearance Example Radiolucent Low Black Air, Fat Radiodense High White Bone, Barium (Opaque)
