Obtaining Chest X-ray Test Results
After the chest X-ray test is read by the doctor, a report is typically generated and placed in the patient's chart. If the X-ray is perfomred in a radiology facility, the report from a radiologist is usually sent to the doctor who had ordered the test. The written report can also be provided to the patient after proper forms to release medical information are signed.
