I'm afraid I don't have a copy of the xray. I believe the consultant has this.
Expert:  Dr. Behere replied 9 months ago.

Is there any way you can get a copy? Because the nature of your question is such that I will have to take a look at the X ray to give you my diagnosis of the shadow.

Regards,

Dr Behere
