Abstract

The aim of this essay was to demonstrate the thoracic venous anatomy as delineated by malpositioned central venous catheters on plain chest radiographs. We therefore used the didactic advantage of clinically inadvertent catheter positions. This approach was chosen to illustrate venous anatomy with plain chest radiographs, and, thereby, to recognize malpositions promptly on the modality with which positions of central venous catheters is routinely performed.
