      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!!!!

      Right paratracheal packet with associated high densities projected over the anterior end of right 1st rib
      1 Articulation of sternoclavicular joint
      2 braid artefact

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