The chest x-ray is just one of the investigations needed to explain the symptoms you have reported. The chest x-ray is an ‘imaging’ test which allows doctors to look at the structures in the chest including the lungs and heart. The information provided by the chest x-ray, when taken together with the results of other tests, may allow your doctor to make a diagnosis and, so, provide the correct treatment. If you have a known diagnosis or disease, a chest x-ray may be requested to monitor progress.
