||The value of routine chest radiography in offshore workers
||Autumn 1988, Vol.38, No.3, p.58-60. 8 ref.
||The results of 5266 chest X-rays taken during routine medicals on offshore oilfield workers were reviewed. Of the 119 abnormals recorded on a computer listing only 6 were considered significant and only 4, in 3 patients, were unsuspected from clinical history and examination. The results do not support the retention of routine chest X-rays in periodic medical examinations for offshore workers.
