what is your medical diagnosis ?
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
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.
radiograph is taken by high voltage .but emphysema is present because both hemidiaphragms flattened
I agree with Gloggglog, this is an oblique x-ray showing 6th left rib fracture and haemopneumothorax
Answer : 6th rib fracture with a moderate sized left pneumothorax
