    This X-rays is useful for bone abnormalities diagnosis, because the vertebral bones are seen clearly
    but useless for Parechymal abnormalities, because this x-rays has high penetration

    Not scoliosis. An oblique x-ray just gives that impression.

    6th left lateral rib fracture (see the little arrow?). Left sided pneumothorax. Left costophrenic sulcus is blunted, could indicate hemothorax.

    I agree with Gloggglog, this is an oblique x-ray showing 6th left rib fracture and haemopneumothorax
