6. Chest MRI #3 sagittal plane

The plane of imaging is just medial to the right hilum. The right main bronchus is not visualized on this image, but as a continuation of the trachea, would be located posterior to the R. pulmonary artery in the hilum. The R. pulmonary veins are also not visualized, but drain into the L. atrium, and so would be seen inferior to the R. pulmonary artery in the hilum (See Image #3).
