This article reviews examples of easily missed, subtle, or ambiguous lesions on chest radiography. Anecdotally, reliance on cross-sectional imaging has diminished radiologists׳ comfort level with chest radiograph interpretation. However, plain film chest radiography remains a valuable tool in diagnostic imaging. It is noninvasive, inexpensive, easily obtained, and diagnostic for many common conditions with the benefit of a very low radiation dose. It is one of the most commonly ordered radiographic examinations; therefore, proficiency in chest radiograph interpretation remains an essential tool in our diagnostic armamentarium...

METHODS: A nationwide EBP survey of US chiropractors was administered online (Nov 2012-Mar 2013) utilizing a validated self-report instrument (EBASE) in which three sub-scores are reported: attitudes, skills and use...

Semi-structured interviews were conducted with six educators...
