Amount Saved: $370 cost of chest x-ray
Chest x-rays are notoriously poor choices for diagnosing lung cancer due to the inability to see clearly what is happening in the lungs. Save chest x-rays for evaluating for pneumonia. The extra $370 in your pocket could come in handy as an extra car payment or to put toward your investment savings account.
