chest x-ray for pre op testing
I just had to get a chest x-ray for my pre op testing and I was curious why do they ask for one and what are they looking for on a chest x-ray when my surgery will be a hysterectomy?

Dear For preoperative testing CXR is a routine world wide not only to look for any pathology also as a part of pre-anesthetic check up, just to see if your lungs are seen normally and there is no problem anticipated during anesthesia.
