Urgent Care Chest X-Ray

Get a fast and affordable chest X-ray at urgent care with CareWell.

When you need an urgent care chest X-ray, you likely want to get it fast. A chest X-ray is usually used to diagnose many uncomfortable and serious medical conditions, from broken ribs and chest pain to a persistent cough or fluid in the lungs.

But in all likelihood, if you go to the emergency room (ER) for an X-ray, you’ll end up waiting hours. Even though you may consider your condition serious, the emergency room is often full of people with even more severe medical needs.

A chest X-ray at CareWell Urgent Care is different. We don’t treat life-threatening emergencies, so you’ll never be a second priority in our clinics. Our facilities are equipped with urgent care X-ray machines, EKG test equipment, and other state-of-the-art technology to let us treat you more efficiently so you can get a diagnosis quickly.

What To Expect From an Urgent Care Chest X-Ray

Our waiting rooms are designed to be quiet spaces with soft lighting—a sharp contrast to the harsh environments of most emergency rooms. And our warm, welcoming staff will do everything possible to keep you comfortable.

During your visit, we’ll have a private X-ray room set up and ready to go, helping to make your experience more pleasant and less stressful.

While you can get a chest X-ray anytime at a CareWell walk-in clinic, you'll get even faster service if you save your spot.

We offer 12 urgent care center locations throughout Eastern Massachusetts and Warwick, Rhode Island, and our facilities are open seven days a week to better meet your urgent care needs.

The next time you need a chest X-ray, save your spot with CareWell First will ensure you receive a more timely, pleasant, and convenient medical experience.

Frequently Asked Questions About Urgent Care With a Chest X-Ray

If you're curious about visiting urgent care for a chest X-ray, here are answers to some common questions to help you understand what to expect and when you might need one.

What Can I Expect During a Chest X-Ray?

During a chest X-ray, you'll be asked to stand in front of a specialized machine while a technician takes images of your chest. It's a quick and painless procedure that typically takes only a few minutes.

How Do I Prepare for a Chest X-Ray?

Generally, no special preparation is needed for a chest X-ray. You may be asked to remove any jewelry or clothing that might interfere with the X-ray image.

What Does a Chest X-Ray Show?

A chest X-ray can show your lungs, heart, blood vessels, and bones in the chest. It can help diagnose conditions such as pneumonia, broken ribs, or a collapsed lung.

When Should I Get a Chest X-Ray?

You may need a chest X-ray if you have symptoms such as chest pain, difficulty breathing, persistent cough, or if your doctor suspects you may have a lung or heart condition.
