BTS Xrays

Kat mentioned setting up a thread for Xrays, so I'll go ahead and post mine and then others can add any they might have. The full sizes if you click the pictures are pretty large.

Those are awesome Xrays half.

I was thinking, should those that put up Xrays also put down a brief description of any injuries/signs of illness to let any readers know what is abnormal?

We fed Binky on Saturday and she vomited her food back up. We took a close look at her and she had a swollen bottom. Right away we took her to the vet and they gave her some antibotics untill we could take her on Monday to Massey University to the reptile clinic. They found the stomach full of something. I went to see her today and she has been put on a IV and given vitiams and dewormed. Her bottom is still inflamed and she seems to be gasping for air at times. They are now going to do a more extensive xray and ultra sound. They are also puttin a dye in her to see exactly what it is she has in her stomach. Fingers crossed, They are takin very good care of her and she is hydrated again. She is in a incubater at the moment to keep her warm.

I will post her ultra sound and other xrays later when they email them to me..

My mom says that she sees for this picture ( download/file.php?id=4313&mode=view ) :
In the lung/chest area she sees what appears to be a fluid level. The round mass seems to be pushing on her esophagus which maybe causing her to regurgitate. The round shape looks like some kind of calcification or tumor/mass/growth.
For this pic ( download/file.php?id=4315&mode=view ):
She sees a lot of air around the circular shape, and she was confused as to why there was so much air (she used the term "highlighting" it). Which didn't look normal. As well as the tail looking crooked (MBD?).
(She isn't a professional veterinarian but she is a xray-technologist )
