Dear Friends,

I’m preparing a cycle of six webinars about basic interpretation of chest radiographs. The first one will be about the PA view, and today I’m presenting six cases that will be shown during this webinar.

You can respond in the blog, as usual. Answers will be given on Monday, November fifth, when the webinar will be posted on the Diploma web.

To encourage your participation, any of you who get three or more right answers will receive a dedicated picture of Dr. Pepe in their mail. Leave your answers in the comments if you want to receive the picture!

Good luck!

# CASE 1

53-year-old woman. Routine follow-up radiography for breast carcinoma, operated on five years ago.

Do you see any abnormalities? If so, where?

# CASE 2

47-year-old man with cough and weight loss.

Do you see any abnormalities? If so, where?

# CASE 3

62-year-old man with hemoptysis.

Do you see any abnormality? If so, where?

# CASE 4

62-year-old male with chronic cough.

What is the most likely diagnosis?

# CASE 5

52-year-old man with cough and fever.

Do you see any abnormality? If so, where?

# CASE 6

Dealing with PA views as driving over the left side of a way are old fashioned things. I heard that the custom of driving on the left side of a way comes from the old times when knights needed to ride a horse with the left hand and wield the arm with the right hand during the tournaments. So thank you for teaching about how to fight in the daily task of reporting PA views without lateral views.
