Radiorafìa de Tòrax pre operaoria

Mr X, a man in his mid 50s with a history of mild intermit- tent asthma and an increasingly painful umbilical hernia, presented to a general surgery clinic for a preoperative evaluation. Basic laboratory test results and cardiopulmo- nary examination findings were normal, and a reducible hernia was noted. A chest radiograph (CXR) was ob- tained for the indication of preoperative evaluation in a pa- tient with asthma older than 55 years. The CXR revealed a 7-mm left perihilar lung nodule, with a radiologist rec- ommending further evaluation of the lung with com- puted tomography (CT). As a result, hernia surgery was de- layed and CT scan of the chest was undertaken. Rx torax
