      Good morning!!!

      There are some high density points proyected over the right sterno-clavicular articulation, and there is an increased density in the soft-tissues of the latero-cervical region so…… Something external to the patient, perhaps she has a fashion rubber band!!!!

      1 Articulation of sternoclavicular joint

      Hello.
      None of the above, I think this is either a film artefact or something external to the patient.
