1 Abnormal chest xrays………………. NORMAL CHEST X-RAY

2 Basic Chest X-Ray Interpretation

3 X-rays- describe radiation which is part of the spectrum which includes visible light, gamma rays and cosmic radiation. Unlike visible light, radiation passes through stuff. When you shine a beam of X-Ray at a person and put a film on the other side of them a shadow is produced of the inside of their body.

4 Different tissues in our body absorb X-rays at different extents: Bone- high absorption (white) Tissue- somewhere in the middle absorption (grey) Air- low absorption (black)

5 Read X-Rays yourself Be systematic Be aware of common artifacts Serially compare Observe symmetry Believe you missed a finding GENERAL PRINCIPLES

6 Check info on CXR Evaluate technique(rotation, penetration, lung expansion) Examine soft tissues and bones Find Alien equiptment Evaluate structures(diaphragms, trachea, hilum, heart shadows) Evaluate lung pathology last CXR INTERPRETATION FORMAT
