If the patient is in the expiratory phase, nearly not lung is visible.
On lateral views, the cardiac silhouette is nearly occupying all the thorax. If you have to stage the patient for lung metastasis, you should consider obtaining one lateral view and one DV, and one VD.
What is the oblique line starting to the right a leading toward the left in the areas of the cranial lung lobes, visible in the DV view? Subscribe to pro for the answer!
There is a mild rotation in this projection, sorry!
Look at the degenerative changes of the sternum of this patient. These degenerative changes are common, especially in large breed dogs, but the clinical significance is not clear.
The caudal tips of the lungs are missing in the sagittal image. In this case, the image should have been centered more caudally.
There are digital artifacts in the cranial aspect of the image (three, metallic radiopaque, parallel lines) due to the cassette developer in a computed indirect digital system.
There is a mild rotation in this projection, more severe at the caudal aspect of the thorax, sorry!
