The Missed X-Rays of Uncle Shroom

Part of the 'mea culpa' series. Hopefully, a very occasional series. In several parts.

Young woman, blunt force trauma to head and right chest. Primary survey unremarkable. Supine chest as follows. (Reported as normal by Radiology... and myself of course)

Because of the picture quality, I can’t se the vessels reach the Costa. I therefore can’t exclude bilateral pneumothorax. The Cor represent over 50 % of the thorax width, but I assume it is a horizontal view? Is there a dissection of the aorta?

I am having a hard time enhancing this image. Or my eyes are not what they used to be
