A chest X-ray is a procedure to create detailed images of the inside of your chest and examine areas such as the lungs, heart, airways and blood vessels. If you have been struggling with breathing difficulties, chest pain or a persistent cough, you may be referred for a chest X-ray to diagnose conditions such as pneumonia, emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or other problems with your heart.

State-of-the-art equipment for the best possible experience

A chest or lung X-ray involves passing low-exposure radiation through the chest area to create an image of your organs, soft tissue and airways. The whole procedure is very quick and carried out within minutes, although you will need to remain very still to allow your Radiologist to get a clear scan.

Following your X-ray, you will need to arrange an appointment to discuss your chest X-ray results, diagnosis and next steps for treatment with the clinician that referred you. Our teams can help with this.
