Chest X-ray

A chest X-ray is a picture of the chest that shows your heart, lungs, airway, blood vessels, and lymph nodes. Pulmonologists routinely use chest x-rays to assess and assist in the diagnosing of pulmonary conditions such as:

  • Help find the cause of common symptoms such as a cough, shortness of breath, or chest pain.
  • Find lung conditions-such as pneumonia, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), collapsed lung (pneumothorax), or cystic fibrosis-and monitor treatment for these conditions.
  • Look for problems from a chest injury, such as rib fractures or lung damage.
