I'd like to meet the person with a rectum by their clavicles. I think that would be scientifically significant.

Hard to tell, being upside down and with all the glare, but I'll guess "free air under the lt hemi-diaphragm."

Or that could be fundus.

The dude is standing on his head. JK

:thumbup:JK, that is what I was thinking - air under diaphragm on erect CXR versus air in the fundus of the stomach.

So, sub-diaphragmatic air... pneumoperitoneum? Looks like possible use of horizontal tangential light to clarify-looking for smaller amounts of free intraperitoneal air in upright chest rad so –used for quick assessment of hemidiaphragms for free air.
