Abnormal Chest X-rays

Abnormal chest X-rays may indicate a variety of conditions including different cancers, pneumonia or congestive heart failure. IU Health Pulmonology & Respiratory Care physicians use X-rays to diagnose these conditions and develop a personalized treatment plan to get you back to better health.

X-rays are non-invasive procedures that use a low dose of radiation to take images of the structures inside your body. They do not require any special preparation and take only a few minutes to complete. Your physician will examine the images to check for any shadows or abnormal shapes that may be signs of a health condition. Following an abnormal chest X-ray, you may have to undergo more testing so your physician can give you the most accurate diagnosis possible.

IU Health Pulmonology & Respiratory Care physicians understand the worry an abnormal test can cause and will work to ease your mind through providing accurate diagnosis, a multitude of treatment options and access to Indiana’s top physicians. Our quality physicians throughout the state are anchored by our Pulmonology team at the Academic Health Center in Indianapolis, ranked by U.S.News & World Report as one of the best lung care centers in the nation. Our pulmonologists are experts in lung health, leading the way to better treatments through research and clinical trials. You can be assured that you will receive high quality, comprehensive care from your first chest X-ray to the treatments that improve your quality of life.
