  Back to Inside Radiology: A Primary Care Perspective

Welcome back to another episode of Inside Radiology, a Primary Care Perspective podcast. I'm Dr. Darcy Little, your host, a community radiologist with a background in primary care. In today's episode, we're decoding chest X-rays, identifying common findings and their clinical significance.

Our learning objectives today are, first and foremost to help you be a better clinician than the doctors on scrubs who put the x-rays backwards. But in reality, our objectives are to review basic radiology principles and to formalize a detailed approach to the interpretation of the chest radiograph with multiple illustrated examples. Just a flashback. It was not that long ago, November 1895, when Conrad Röentgen discovered the X-ray, and he noticed that it traveled through paper, wood and aluminum, and he called it X-radiation. But we sometimes call it Röentgen radiation to signify that he discovered it. And this X-ray on the right, on the lower aspect is were thought to be his hand. One of the first X-rays ever taken. We've come a long way since Röentgen.
