A Radiographic Unit, Chest is a device stand used for radiographic imaging of the thorax (chest), the most frequently performed medical radiographic imaging procedures. The images produced are used for diagnosing lung disorders such as acute infections and chronic malignancies; for indicating whether additional diagnostic tests, such as computed tomography, are needed; and for imaging inhaled objects. The recording of the pattern may occur on film or through electronic means.
