    Egyptian doctor is "playing games with your heart". (-: This is a pediatric X ray....just look at how the ribs are oriented ( almost horizontal as opposed to oblique in adults ) and it has to do something with the heart

    Also In COPD xray...the diaphragm is flattened and the air trapping will result in hyperluceny. In this X ray any hyperlucency is courtesy...overexposure ( all the thoracic veretebrae are clearly visible )

    Hint: The heart is boot shaped

    i guess u r right...it looks like this child likes money ( it seems to be in the right bronchus ). I initially thought it was a chest lead P:

    A lateral CXR is not required in this case..as it is definitely to the right and thus cannot be in the esophagus.

    And I guess, if u look long enough at any infant Xray...it will look boot shaped.

    I hope the child doesn't swallow this next [​IMG]

    Egyptian doctor is surely playing with our hearts and minds :hhh:
