This publication discusses the utility of chest radiographs and chest ultrasound (US) in the intensive care unit (ICU)setting. The intentions for routine daily portable chest radiographs—patient monitoring; documenting the course of disease for which radiographs are obtained after specific procedures or following insertion of tubes and lines, suchas endotracheal, nasogastric (orogastric), and chest tubes; placement of pulmonary artery and central venouscatheters (CVCs); and chest tube removal—are addressed.
