Chest X-Ray

It is very likely your child will have already had chest X-Rays before being seen. Depending on where you live, these X-Rays may be able to be seen on the computer when you are seen in the clinic. Sometimes it can be helpful to repeat an X-Ray at the time of the clinic. This might even mean doing one when your child is well, to show what the lungs look like “at their best”.  The doctor in the clinic will explain to you if an X-Ray is necessary, and why. The X-Ray can be discussed with you later in the clinic.
