Digital X-ray

As with any aspect of medical care, knowing that a patient is or could be pregnant is important information. Please inform the technologist if pregnancy is possible.


Chest X-ray

The chest X-ray is performed to evaluate the lungs, heart and other thoracic structures.

A chest X-ray is typically the first imaging test used to help diagnose symptoms such as:

  • shortness of breath
  • a bad or persistent cough
  • chest pain or injury
  • fever

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

  • pneumonia
  • heart failure and other heart problems
  • emphysema
  • lung cancer

How Should I prepare?

A chest X-ray requires no special preparation.
