X-Ray

X-Rays are especially useful in the detection of pathology of the skeletal system, but are also useful for detecting some disease processes in soft tissue. Some notable examples are the very common chest X-Ray, which can be used to identify lung diseases such as pneumonia, lung cancer or pulmonary edema, and the abdominal X-Ray, which can detect ileus (blockage of the intestine), free air (from visceral perforations) and free fluid (in ascites).
