Chest X-rays before surgery: When you need them - and when you don't

A chest X-ray may not be needed if you don't have signs or symptoms of heart or lung disease. The information from the X-ray rarely helps a doctor manage your care and can result in unnecessary follow-up tests.

A pre-operative chest X-ray can sometimes help identify medical problems that might make it a good idea to delay or even cancel the procedure. Read the Choosing Wisely report to find out when a chest X-ray may be warranted before surgery.

Ways to Save

Many providers perform diagnostics like x-rays, mammography, ultrasound exams and bone density studies in their own offices. In-office tests are often (but not always) the best value. If your doctor offers you an in-office test, be sure to ask for and compare the price against the Fair Price with the Bluebook mobile app while you are there. If the quoted price is significantly more than the Fair Price, ask your doctor for a referral to another diagnostic testing facility that offers a better value.
