This normal female radiograph shows the greater range of normal for heart size and the slightly greater radiographic density of the lung fields bilaterally. This individual is somewhat obese and most likely did not take a full inspiratory effort. Note that the clavicles are symmetric and relatively horizontal suggesting that the arms are by the side rather than being elevated. Elevation of the arms tends to assist achieving a better inspiratory effort
