Test Criteria

An X-ray of the sternum is a safe and painless test to visualise the sternum (known as breastbone) along with the surrounding soft tissues like skin and muscles. The sternum is a bone located in the middle of the chest and it extends from the bottom of neck till the stomach. The sternum is attached to the first seven ribs and the collar bone. The image is recorded on a special X-ray film. The X-ray image is black and white. Dense structures such as the bones, appear white and softer body tissues, such as the skin and muscles appear darker. The actual exposure time to radiation is usually less than a second, although the overall test may take 15-20 minutes.
