Chest X-ray

Chest X-rays are a test which produces images of the heart, lungs, airways, and bones of the chest. Chest X-ray may be used as medical surveillance for employees. Typically employees who have been exposed to dust, or for those who have a history of tuberculosis will get periodic chest X-rays. Chest X-rays can be done from multiple views such as posterior-anteriorly, and laterally.
