Angulation of the right 7th, 8th and 9th ribs anterolaterally suggestive of fracture. No other definite evidence of traumatic injury. The apparent widening of the superior mediastinum is not an unexpected finding in a supine patient of this age and in itself is not necessarily indicative of trauma. The fact that the majority of the superior mediastinal widening is to the left of the trachea (trachea slightly pushed to right) is potentially a more sinister finding, but this is still not an overly reliable sign of aortic injury.
