Will COPD show up on X-ray?

March 21, 2022
Although a chest X-ray alone cannot establish a  COPD diagnosis, it can reveal valuable information about your heart and lungs. A lung function test, as well as a thorough examination of your symptoms and their impact on your life, are required for a valid diagnosis.

While COPD may not be seen on a chest x-ray until it is advanced, images of the lungs, air pockets (bullae), and a flattened diaphragm may be visible. A chest x-ray can also be used to determine if symptoms that are similar to chronic lung disease,COPD are caused by anything else.Reward yourself with Salt Therapy for COPD at Saltworld
