I agree with my classmates that the artifact is an Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR). I do not think the radiograph has to be necessarily repeated unless to improve the technical factors for a better quality image. However, I would like a lateral view radiograph too, since two views are usually required. With both views we can detect if any stent graft have migrated.

I agree with my classmates that the artifact in the image above is an Endovascular Aneurysm Repair(EVAR). Since the artifact is within the patient I don't think is necessary to repeat the image. However, I believe the image is under exposed and as my classmate @mark stated, an adjustment in technical factors would be ideal in order to have an optimal image. Even though the anatomy in question is superimposed by the artifact, I believe is no way this exposure can be taken without having superimposition of the artifact in the anatomy in question.

I agree with my fellow classmate that is image a stent grafts. I don’t think this image would need to be repeated

I agree that this artifact is an EVAR. Since this is an EVAR this radiograph does not need to be repeated as everything seems fine.

I agree with my fellow classmates that the artifact seen on the image is an Endovascular Aneurysm Repair and therefore the study should not be repeated.
