Chest X-ray - Right Lung!


Hello everybody!
So today let's go through the Right lung segments as seen on a Chest x-ray with the help of images.

This will help us identify the exact location of the pathology and the possible etiology for the same.

So the Right lung has 3 lobes.
Upper
Middle
Lower.

Let's start with the right UPPER LOBE.
It has 3 segments.


Now moving to the MIDDLE LOBE .
It has 2 segments Medial and Lateral.



Moving to the LOWER LOBES.
It has 5 segments.
Superior Basal
Lateral Basal
Antero Basal
Medial Basal
Posterior Basal.

So well I hope this helps to correlate the various Bronchopulmonary segments while interpreting a Chest x-ray!
