Chest X-Ray

A chest X-ray or a chest radiograph is a test that exposes the chest to small amounts of radiation in order to produce an image of the internal structure of the chest. A chest X-ray is a type of radiology test that involves placing an X-ray film against the body and a camera shoots out the X-ray radiation towards it.

The X-ray radiation is them absorbed partially by the body. Some body parts absorb a larger quantity of the radiation such as the bones. The absorption depends on the density and the composition of the organs. As a result of this partial absorption, an image of the different organs present in the chest cavity is formed on the X-ray film. Denser tissues such as the bones form a more distinct shadow on the film compared to the other less dense tissues such as the lungs.
