Chest x-ray - Left Lung.

Hello everybody!
Let's see the image correlations of the left lung today.
The left lung has an apical lobe ,lingula and a basal lobe.
Apical lobe has 2 segments: Anterior and posterior.
Lingula : The tongue like extension and the alleged counterpart of the middle lobe has 2 parts to it : Superior and Inferior.
Basal lobe has 4 segments namely : Superior, Posterior, Medial, Lateral.
Carefully observe how the identification of these segments differs while seeing an X-ray.
Apical lobe:



Basal Lobe:



So that's it with the interpretation of lung fields on X-rays!
Hope this is helpful!
