The X-ray produces pictures of the blood vessels, the heart, and the lungs, along with the airways and the bones of the spine and the chest. Men and women who go to their doctors in an emergency or visit them normally with chest pain, shortness of breath, or chest injury will typically need to go through the X-ray of chest. The X-ray helps general practitioners determine whether the patient has heart issues, pneumonia, collapsed lung, emphysema, broken ribs, cancer, or various other conditions.
