This is Dr. David
xrays are 2 dimentional shadow films based on 1940s sort of technology.
they are often not very clear
what is much more clear and detailed is a chest CT scan which is a high definition 3 dimentional rendering of your chest and lungs.
you should ask your doctors to order you a chest CT scan to get a better look at what might be behind your heart.
I would also ask for a copy of your chest xray report.
you can upload your complete chest xray report. I would be happy to review it with you here.
