No pneumothorax. The lungs are clear. Normal heart and mediastinal contours. Normal skeleton.
Pneumothorax is a common indication for a chest radiograph and the lung apices are important check-areas during reporting. If demonstrated, the signs indicating tension pneumothorax should also be assessed, with mediastinal shift to the contralateral side to the pneumothorax as one of the main findings.
