    What is a Chest X-Ray?

    An X-ray is an imaging test that uses small amounts of radiation to produce pictures of the organs, tissues, and bones of the body. When focused on the chest, it helps to spot abnormalities or diseases of the airways, blood vessels, bones, heart, and lungs. Chest X-rays can also determine if you have fluid in your lungs, or fluid or air surrounding your lungs. A chest X-ray is an easy, quick, and effective test that helps doctors view some of your most vital organs.

Another use for a chest X-ray is to see the size and shape of your heart. Abnormalities in the size and shape of your heart can indicate issues with heart function. Doctors sometimes use chest X-rays to monitor your progress after surgery to the chest area. Doctors can check to see that any implanted materials are in the right place, and can make sure you’re not experiencing any air leaks or fluid buildup. Chest X-rays often form part of a pre-employment checkup to assess your general health and prevent exposure of any potential infection to colleagues. Exposure to the small amount of radiation produced during an X-ray is well worth it because of the diagnostic benefits the test provides. However, it is not recommended to undergo a X-ray if you are pregnant. This is because radiation can harm your unborn baby. If you believe you are pregnant, make sure you tell your doctor or the X-Ray technician. A radiologist examines the images and gives an interpretation. A report is handed over to you along with the image film.
