I have had chest xrays done quite a few times....both ordered by GP and at clinic. As far as I can tell they do it to check for anything else that they have missed as well as things like infection will show up on an xray.

One of the more medical people will probably have a more helpful answer.





my son has had a few x rays, they x ray to check for infection virul or bacterial cuz somtimes it can be difficult to hear. its good to do cuz it can helps to shed light on whats happening.
