Brief Answer: Please find detailed answer below Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for writing in to us. An artifact in paracardiac region is a shadow next to the heart which is probably not due to any medical condition but is a result of any technical errors or if there is any undesirable object outside the body which is seen I the x ray. Please try to take picture of x ray and attach that to your query and I will have a look at it. Waiting for your update. Regards, Dr.Vivek
