Hi Daninah,

Artifacts are basically distortions in the x-ray.  The apicolordotic view is just another x-ray, taken at a different angle so that the tops of the lungs can be better imaged.

It can indicate something serious.  They are trying to identify what the artifacts are.  PTB is one common cause.

Hope it helps.
