X-Ray (Radiography) - Chest

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.


Physicians use the examination to help diagnose or monitor treatment for conditions such as:

  • Pneumonia
  • Heart failure and other heart problems
  • Emphysema
  • Lung Cancer
  • Positioning of medical devices
  • Fluid or air collection around the lungs
  • Other medical conditions
