Sample text

The vascular pedicle extends from the thoracic inlet to the base of the heart caudally. The right border of the pedicle is the SVC, and the left border is the aortic arch near the origin of the left subclavian artery (Figs. 9). Next, review both diaphragms; the right hemidiaphragm should normally be about 1 to 2 cm higher than the left due to the liver. The lateral recesses of the diaphragms form the lateral costophrenic gutters, which should be sharp and form an acute angle where the diaphragms insert laterally to the chest wall.

8 Advantages and Disadvantages of US Diagnostic Imaging Skin Advantages Liver Multiple plane imaging including obliques Safe—no known biologic harm at diagnostic sound frequency levels Painless (noninvasive) Less expensive than CT and MRI Equipment cost is less than that of CT and MRI Real time or cine is possible Very portable Transducer Emitted sound waves Reflected sound waves returning to transducer Scattered sound waves Vertebral body Disadvantages Requires technical skill or is operator dependent Not good for bone and lung imaging reflected sound waves from the body tissues are intermittently received by the transducer (Fig.

Once again, begin by reviewing the entire image looking for any obvious abnormalities. Following this, evaluate the size and shape of the cardiac silhouette, which lies anteriorly. On lateral projections, the right ventricle forms the anterior border of the cardiac silhouette. The left ventricle forms the major portion of the inferior– posterior cardiac border, and the left atrium forms the superior–posterior cardiac border. On most lateral chest radiographs, the posterior wall of the inferior vena cava can be seen as it enters from the abdomen into the right atrium (Fig.
