Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The increasing use of pacemakers makes it imperative for the radiologist to become familiar with the normal appearance of these devices and their complications on chest radiographs. This brief review illustrates the normal anatomy pertinent to the understanding of pacemakers as well as their most important complications. Anatomic cardiac variants are also illustrated, as they can create a challenge for the interpreting radiologist.
