Chest X-Ray

A chest x-ray is a procedure used to evaluate organs and structures within the chest for symptoms of disease. Chest x-rays include views of the lungs, heart, small portions of the gastrointestinal tract, thyroid gland and the bones of the chest area.

Chest x-rays may be performed in a physician’s office, an outpatient radiology facility or hospital radiology department. In some cases, particularly for bedridden patients, a portable chest x-ray may be taken. Portable films are sometimes of poorer quality than those taken with permanent equipment, but are the best choice for certain situations.
