The lungs are clear. The heart is normal in size. The mediastinum is within normal limits. There is an electronic device that overlies the heart.
The case documents how the patient must be adequately prepared before an X-ray examination. In this patient, leaving the shirt on did not reveal the presence of an electronic cigarette superimposed on the cardiac image.
Thank you to Mr Daniele Virgulti, radiographer.
