Sample text

Patients in the ICU who have intravascular catheters or who are undergoing mechanical ventilation frequently have chest radiographs performed as a survey for complications that may not be revealed by physical examination or laboratory data. These examinations are done with the cassette placed behind the patient in bed and are therefore anterior-to-posterior (AP) projections. The technical factors, which are controlled by the technologist at the time of the examination, vary with the size of the patient and the distance of the radiographic plate from the x-ray source (or machine).

A reasonable approach is to begin in the upper right side of the mediastinum just lateral to the spine and below the right clavicle. The curved soft-tissue shadow represents the right border of the superior vena cava (SVC). The border of the SVC forms an interface with the lung and should not be confused with the right paratracheal stripe. Below the SVC is the right cardiac border formed by the right atrium. The inferior heart border, or base of the heart, is the area just above the diaphragm and is composed primarily of the right ventricle, although there is some contribution from the left ventricular shadow.

The majority of the transverse arch is not outlined by air and therefore cannot be seen as it crosses the mediastinum. However, the distal transverse and descending aorta can be seen to the left of the mediastinum as it turns inferiorly. The left border of the descending thoracic aorta should be followed down to the aortic hiatus. Any loss of this contour or any contour abnormality may indicate pathology and should be investigated. Dilation or ectasia, localized bulges, and calcification may occur within the aorta as a normal part of the aging process, but should be viewed as abnormal in younger individuals.
