Objectives
1) To revise the basic projections for CXR

2) Recommend methods for accomplishing acceptable variations of standard radiographic projections, especially chest examinations for airfluid levels

3) Identify the abdominal radiography projections and patient positions .

WHAT ARE THE BASIC PROJECTIONS FOR CXR???

CAN YOU RADIOGRAPHY MY CHEST & ABDOMEN Please

IR Size35x 43 cm(14x17 inches) crosswise

Central Ray (CR): 3o to 5o Caudally


Center Point (CP): 3-4 inches (710cm) below the jugular notch.

SID is 48 to 72 inches (122- 180 cm)

Bedside CXR:

SID is 48 to 72 inches (122- 180 cm)

Bedside CXR:

SID is 48 to 72 inches (122- 180 cm)

Lateral CXR

CP: At the level of T7

Lateral Decubitus--AP Projection


Purpose: To determine airfluid level when the patient cannot be elevated sufficiently for erect position. -- In the bed place IR behind the patient . -- Raise arms above the head.

IR Size35x 43 cm(14x17 inches) 70-80 Kvp rang.


Include Decubitus and upside marker.

SID: 40 inches(100 cm). CR: Perpendicular. CP: At the level of iliac crest.

Left Lateral Decubitus AP projection

CR: Horizontal CP: To the centre of IR

Dorsal Decubitus (lateral Projection)

Dorsal Decubitus --(lateral Projection) Is useful position for demonstrating a possible abdominal aortic aneurysm, and alternative to lateral Decubitus position if the patient condition not allow.

Case Studies

Case1) AP supine-CXR

Total lung collapse secondary to an incorrectly sited endotracheal tube .

Case Studies
Case2) Lateral DecuCXR Case3) AP -CXR

Minimal effusion Lateral Decubitus

Heamothorax

Case Studies
Case3) AP Semi-erect CXR

Rt Sided Pleural Effusion .

Case Studies
Case4) PA Lateral decubitus CXR
