Respiratory Ch. 4 - Gary White Lab book

On a standard Xray study of the chest, which of the following are the most common two views? I. Posterior-anterior II. Anterior-posterior III. Lateral IV. Apical lordotic a. I and III b. I and IV c. II and III d. II and IV a. I and II
When the posterior-anterior (PA) view is compared w/ the anterior-posterior (AP) view: a. heart shadow on the PA view is larger b. heart shadow on the AP view is larger c. apecies are more easily visualized on the AP view d. PA view is often a portab b. the heart shadow on the AP view is larger
Which of the following has the greatest radiodensity? a. air b. fat c. water d. bone d. bone
A possible nodular anomaly is present in the right upper lobe on a PA film, but partially obscured by the clavicle. What view might show the anomaly better? a. AP projection b. Lateral projection c. Apical lordotic projection d. L. anterior oblique pr c. Apical lordotic projection
During full inspiration, the hemidiaphragms on an adult chest film should be: a. at the C5 vertebra b. at the level of the 12th rib c. at the L4 vertebra d. at the level of the 10th rib d. at the level of the 10th rib
When evaluating a PA film of the chest, you note that the right costophrenic angles are blunted. What does this suggest? a. pneumothorax b. presence of an infiltrate in the right lower lobe c. presence of atelectasis in the right base d. presence of d. presence of a pleural effusion on the right
When evaluating a PA film of the chest, you note that in the upper lobe there is a 1 cm wide sliver along the lateral margin, descending from the apex, merging w/the ribs at the 3rd rib. This narrow sliver is very black & devoid of vascular markings. This a. pneumothorax
For evaluating the position of an ET tube on an AP chest film, the tip of the ET tube should rest: a. at the carina b. at the 4th rib space c. at a point 2-3 cm above the carina d. just above the clavicles c. at a point 2-3 cm above the carina
When viewing a V/Q scan, you note ventilation to be even on all views. On the perfusion scan, you note absence of perfusion in the right apical posterior segment. This finding suggests: a. pulmonary infiltrate b. atelectasis in the right apical posterio c. a possible pulmonary embolus
A pulmonary angiogram is used to: a. image the ventilation of the lung b. image the perfusion of the lung c. image the lymph system of the lung d. none of the above b. image the perfusion of the lung
