What is an X-ray Chest AP View Test?

Chest X-rays are used to see the chest wall structures, such as the collar bone, breastbone, ribs, shoulder blade, and surrounding muscles. It is also helpful to see the chest's interior organs, including the lungs, airways, heart, esophagus, and diaphragm.

Why is it done? 

  • * For diagnosing chest wall fractures (including the collar bone, breastbone, ribs, and shoulder blade)
  • * To identify lung infections, tumors, or pneumothorax (presence of air between the lungs and chest wall).
  • * To identify cardiac issues such as hypertrophy, fluid surrounding the heart, or valve problems.
  • * To identify esophageal infections, inflammations, or abnormal growth.
  • * For diagnosing diaphragm perforation (by the presence of free air in the chest),
  • * To identify chest wall or organ birth defects.
