Right-sided pneumothorax on chest x-ray
19y old boy, coming to the ER with spontaneous chest pain by playing football. #Pneumothorax
Wow, trauma induced or spontaneous?
What's the chronology of these films? The second one looks worse, with shifting. Was he stable?
Hey, he was stable! ;)

Looks to me like they may have done the second one on expiration? Expiration tends to make penumos stand out even more.

Hey! No it was only on the right side ;)
Is it just me or does his heart look smaller than usual?
