Chest X-Ray

Chest X-ray uses a very small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the chest. It is used to evaluate the lungs, heart and chest wall and may be used to help diagnose shortness of breath, persistent cough, fever, chest pain or injury. It also may be used to help diagnose and monitor treatment for a variety of lung conditions such as pneumonia, emphysema, and cancer. Because chest x-ray is fast and easy, it is particularly useful in emergency diagnosis and treatment.
