Dr Dan J Bell and Dr Jeremy Jones et al.
This is a basic article for medical students and other non-radiologists

Chest radiology imaging is dominated by the chest radiograph. So, it is important that you are able to review a chest x-ray as well as being able to identify the common lines and tubes that are reviewed on a CXR.

In addition, CT is used to make assessment of thoracic pathology which may be vascular (e.g. PE), neoplastic (e.g. lung cancer) or environmental (e.g. asbestosis).
