What are Chest X-Ray Services?
Chest X-rays are the most commonly performed X-ray procedure. They are fast, non-invasive, and affordable. Chest X-rays are used to detect heart or lung diseases, assess injuries, and diagnose and monitor the treatment and progression of health issues. X-rays use small amounts of electromagnetic radiation with special X-ray film or a sensor to record images to a computer, revealing tissues, organs, and bones beneath the skin’s surface. The imagery created looks like the negative of a black and white photograph, with dense bony structures showing as white and other soft tissues appearing gray.
Issues That Can Be Diagnosed and Treated with a Chest X-Ray
Chest X-rays focus on issues with the health of the heart, lungs, blood vessels, airways, and the bones of your chest and spine. Our staff can quickly assess broken bones and many heart and lung problems with a chest X-ray. Individuals seeking a chest X-ray may suffer chest pain, persistent cough, shortness of breath, cancer, emphysema, pneumonia, collapsed lung, fluid accumulations in the lung, air surrounding a lung, calcium deposits, aneurysms, and more.
The Chest X-Ray Procedure
Chest X-rays may be taken while lying down or standing in front of the metal plate holding the film or sensor. You will be asked to wear a hospital gown and remove your jewelry. We may use a lead apron to reduce radiation exposure. Our radiologic technicians will guide you in positioning your body and timing your breathing to ensure clear imagery. The process is fast and painless, typically taking just minutes to complete. A series of images may be necessary over time to track your condition and direct treatment.
