Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
neutral  Harald Moelzer (medical-translator): 'Thorax in 2 Ebenen' ist sicherlich eine konventionelle Röntgenuntersuchung, und gleichzeitig so banal, dass das Hinzufügen eines eigenen Kürzels doch sehr unwahrscheinlich ist...und was bedeutet dann "SP" beim Thorax im Liegen (siehe Ed's 2. Frage)????
