Image of This right lateral chest radiograph shows the tube end positioned in the caudal oesophagus, just proximal to the 8th rib. (An endotracheal tube is also positioned just proximal to the 2nd rib.) There is a mild generalized interstitial pattern in the lung fields, particularly dorsally, which was attributed to underinflation/exposure factors. On this radiograph there is also evidence of shoulder and elbow osteoarthritis, with osteophytes present caudal to the shoulder joint and cranial to the elbow joint of the more caudally positioned forelimb.
