Adult chest radiograph pathology checklist

Last revised by Joshua Yap on 1 Mar 2023

The adult chest radiograph pathology checklist is just a pathology checklist of things not to miss when reviewing a chest radiograph, especially in the exam setting.

  • standard review areas

    • apices

    • retrocardiac area

    • hilar regions

    • below the diaphragm

    • right descending pulmonary artery (like a little finger)

Easily missed pathology

Run through the areas of the chest radiograph in order and think of pathology that you need to actively check for. It's not going to just jump out and hit you in the face!
