When the X-ray beam passes through the patient from back to front [a posterior–anterior (PA) projection], the heart is closer to the ﬁlm and is less magniﬁed. Conversely, if the X-ray beam enters the front of the patient’s chest, passes through the back and onto the ﬁlm [an anterior– posterior (AP) projection], the magniﬁed heart and great vessels may give the impression of cardiomegaly. This is a common problem with portable chest ﬁlms, which are taken in the AP direction. Another important factor in magniﬁcation is the distance of the X-ray tube from the ﬁlm.
