Someone impaled with a dildo?

Looks like the clavicle bone.

I was told accessory rib, but who knows. LOL

Do you have the PA view of this? That doesn't look like an accessory rib to me. I tried to figure it out but I just don't know what it is. What does the radiologist's report say?

It looks too low to be a clavicle.

OK, it's been a while since I've read a lateral x-ray, but I'm really having trouble getting oriented.

Ah, wait, I'm getting it. Were you being cleared for spinal injury and in a brace or something? It just seems like an odd configuration.

I think what I said was a "dildo" (come on, look at it, it's very phallic) is your scapula or clavicle. I see your arm behind you coming down. that's what's throwing me because laterals are usually done with arms raised so they don't get in the way. If you were braced then they would have skipped that.

Maybe I'm totally wrong. It still all looks odd to me. Why is your airway so far posterior?

EDIT to see that this isn't you at all, but a baby. Were they in ICU where they could not be moved?

Not in a brace. Not sure of the other stuff. I don't have a report or any of the other pics, because they are at the neuro, they kept them.

I think it's the interface between scapula/clavicle/humerus from an arm being held "up" (which would be to the right) by a nurse.

no offense if it is not, but is it the cervicothoracic junction of a dog?

edit: i just read the part about the accessory rib... the image has the person leaning forward slightly more than usually seen with these radiographs since most people that get these are in a neck brace and laying down (you are likely standing up in this image). i've seen people try and trick you with an image that looks like this and it turns out to be a quadropod...

it's a swimmer's lateral view... what is the specific question about the radiograph?

edit: oh, i just read the part where you commented about an accessory rib. which part did they say was an accessory rib? do you have the frontal view, or a chest x-ray?

This is ME. I'm laying on my side on the table, in a curled position. Nobody else near me.

Mike, I looked at it again, and just can't figure it out. Can you tell us why the x-ray was done?
I even put it in Photoshop to change the contrast. We can see your arm, your scapula, your sternum, ribs and spine. I can even (maybe) make out an accessory rib...But I have no idea what that thing is.
May I have your permission to alter your pic to show you?

This was a T-spine. I have no idea why it was done this time. I have a fused T3-T4, that might have been part of the reason. Go ahead and edit it up. I wish I had the other films with me to get the one where the doc pointed out the accessory rib.

I' m no radiologist, so don't take this as absolute truth now.

It's the ? part I'm wondering about? Not sure about where you placed the accessory rib.

And yeah, that's my birthday, since you know it, I'll expect a B-day present. ;)

I'll print it out, talk to a radiologist tomorrow, and let you know what he says!!!

Thanks.

Granted I'm not a doctor, but what you're labeling the sternum looks to me like a clavicle. I've had the joy of that being my only ever (knock on wood) broken bone.

the ? mark is the part I think is his far arm raised. It's either scapula or clavicle or humerus or some combination.

third leg?

what is labeled as "? accessory rib" on this is the articulating facet of a lower cervical vertebrae

what is labeled as "scapula" is the scapula

what is labeled as "arm bone" is not an actual structure, but likely our mind trying to join together several lines of different objects and imagine it is a structure (it's called "confluence of shadows" in radiology). the tip of what's labeled "arm bone" is actually right next to the bottom of the head of the humerus (bone of the upper arm). your arms are angled upward, so the rounded part that we see at the bottom is the part that articulates with the shoulder joint.

what is labeled as "?" is probably the clavicle.

what is labeled as "sternum" is actually what puzzles me, since the top part of the sternum (the manubrium) is at the level of the clavicles, and the sternum goes inferior to that. my guess is that this is the other clavicle, and that your arms were not raised equally. if you have a better version of this, or any other views, i can confirm this for you. (this is my day job)

Accessory rib? I don't know about that. The object with the question mark is definitely the clavicle/collar bone on the right side. It's just seen from a view we aren't used to seeing. The x-ray is taken from the left side, going through to the right. Hence we are seeing the right clavicle in a view going from the sternum towards the right arm. Look at a skeleton from above the head, and you will be able to see what I mean.
