Heart and Mediastinum

  • 2871 Accesses

Abstract

When evaluating the cardiopericardial outline and mediastinal contours, it is easiest to follow the right and left borders that these structures make with the aerated lung. Although the mediastinum is optimally visualized by various cross-sectional imaging techniques, the initial evaluation is often made on plain radiographs.
