A chest X-ray can be used to diagnose pneumonia, which is one of the complications of measles. [1]

Chest X-Ray

  • A chest X-ray is done if pneumonia is suspected in a patient with measles.
  • The chest x-ray findings in patient with measles will be a patchy consolidation of lung lobes and poorly define nodules. [2]
  • Damage to the alveoli may occur in severe cases leading to dyspnea.
