Question: How could they see heart monitor electrodes on a lumber spine X-ray? The monitors were in the front only. Could it be something else like a tumor/ lesion? Doesn’t make sense how they could see that from that view.

LUMBAR SPINE FINDINGS:

Mineralization and alignment are satisfactory. No acute fracture or

subluxation. Pedicles are intact. SI joints are symmetrical. Soft tissues

demonstrate no acute abnormalit

Detailed Answer:

Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

It is possible to view heart electrodes on a xray due to radio opaque material used. The lumbar spine xray can show details of the lower chest and heart area.

The report findings show no significant abnormality.

Please send the xray image if you have it for a detailed reply.
