CXR reviews - DAJS

Playlist contributed by: Dr Derek Smith

This is a brief introduction to some common and important chest pathologies. Go through each case, and look for the study questions in the upper left corner for (most of) the cases.

Mostly CXRs, but there is a normal CT in the introduction and a couple of CTPAs at the end, particularly good to get an idea of the lobes and adjacent structures.

Before reading - take a bit of time and read our new pages about the best system to tackle CXRs - https://radiopaedia.org/articles/chest-x-ray-an-approach-summary. This is a work in progress so any feedback is welcome.

Some of the basic points of lobar collapse, signs of pneumothorax, and looking for PEs on CTPA.

Probably the most important thing is to interrogate every CXR with the same system - hopefully this way you won't miss the important things when you're looking at them at 2am! https://radiopaedia.org/articles/chest-x-ray-an-approach-summary
