Radiographic Units, Chest
Definition : Radiographic units used for imaging the thorax, the most common radiologic procedure. The standard examination is performed at a long source-to-image distance (typically 182 cm [72 in]). These radiographic units are used for diagnosing lung disorders (e.g., tuberculosis, cancer), assessing respiratory function, identifying cardiac problems, indicating the need for additional diagnostic tests, and imaging inhaled objects.
