How We Take A Chest X-Ray

How We Take A Chest X-Ray

Here at Cincinnati Children’s, our Radiology Department images about 120 chest x-rays a day. That’s a lot compared to our other modalities like CT, MRI, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, etc. It is also one of the least time-consuming exams. Our radiography technologists are trained to provide the best, quickest and safest exams to our patients.
