Chest X-Ray

As part of your wellness annual checkup, our skilled internist and team prioritize your well-being by incorporating various diagnostic procedures into your routine examination. One such procedure is the chest X-ray which we provide in New York, New York, an invaluable tool for assessing the health of your respiratory system and surrounding structures.

During your annual checkup, our experienced internist may recommend a chest X-ray to gain a deeper understanding of your lung health. This non-invasive imaging technique employs low levels of radiation to create detailed images of your chest, including your lungs, heart, ribs and diaphragm. It allows us to identify potential abnormalities such as lung infections, tumors, fractures or conditions affecting the heart and surrounding vessels.

To ensure your comfort and safety, we will guide you through the entire process. You will be positioned appropriately and asked to take a deep breath and hold it for a few seconds while the X-ray machine captures the images. Rest assured that the radiation exposure during a chest X-ray is minimal, making it a safe and routine procedure.

Following the X-ray, Dr. John Abroon will analyze the images, meticulously examining them for any signs of concern. If any anomalies are detected, we will promptly discuss the findings with you, provide an accurate diagnosis and outline a personalized treatment plan if necessary.

By incorporating chest X-rays into your annual checkup, our internist and team aim to proactively monitor your respiratory health, detect potential issues at an early stage and ensure that you receive the best possible care. Your well-being is our priority, and we strive to deliver comprehensive medical evaluations tailored to your unique needs. Call us at 212-288-0900 to schedule your annual checkup today.
