tip for chest x-ray...

53 posts in this topic Register to Ask a Question

Funny thing is, my wife has heard of this. I guess it is one of their supersitions or beliefs....She was told to drink sterilized milk before doing her medical for japan and korea....but she didnt drink any before her medical for her visa here.

If someone did indeed have a scar and then drank the milk, I would like to see it help. Maybe this goes to show that sometimes they "see" a scar and sometimes they don't.

I am with Tahoma, if it was this easy to fool, everyone would be doing a sputnum test. Cant fool that one for sure.....but if someone wants to drink the milk before the medical...it can't hurt.

I can see it now...there will be a post here soon about someone having to do the sputnum test after drinking milk before the medical. :rofl:

hi. My wife recently just took her medical exam, and thank goodness she passed. And we think we owe it all to sterilized milk! you see, my wife had TB when she was younger (she underwent treatment and is totally fine), and it left a small scar on her left lung. We were so worried that she would have to do a sputum because of the scar. Her mother told us that if you drink milk, it will hide the scar. so my wife drank milk 2 times a day for about a week before our medical exam. and to our amazement, there was no scar on the x-ray!!!! it was incredible!!! so if anyone has the medical exam coming up and are worried about this....... maybe a glass of milk will help you :pop:

:thumbs:

358px-pneumonia_x-ray-179x300.jpg chest xrays; before and after drinking 1/2 gallon of milk

In case anyone dosn't know it already this was a joke :yes:

I just pulled it off of google images.

I don't know if it is the same person or not.

As far as the boney structure not looking the same, there are multiple variables that can affect the look.

A portable done sitting in a bed puts the film behind the patient, a standing picture would be done with the

film in front of the patient (xray tube behind the patient). The film could be placed crosswise or lengthwise

and that affects how things are percieved. When you fill one lung with liquid or mucus the pressure pushes the heart

and other structures over towards the other lung. The bottom picture is darker to help penetrate what is probably

pneumonia.

You can cover up scar tissue with mucus, but then it's going to look like the lung next to the letter B. and the

doctor is going to put your butt in the hospital

I had 2 tetra packs of sterilized milk few hours before medical and it didn't work at all.

Still had to do the dreaded sputum test. Ugh! :bonk:

I doubt topics like this one are the proper place for a bit of joking.

There is already enough mis-information floating around in the Philippines regarding US Immigration, isn't there?

Besides, even if I knew of a foolproof way to hide evidence of TB from the medical screener why would I share that and possibly help a lot of people with active TB enter the US?

My step-mom had to endure the TB treatment when she immigrated from South Korea 30 years ago. It was for our safety. Why should it be any different today?

Mucous is many times less dense that scar tissue so it cannot mask scar tissue in x-rays.

This was your contribution to the mis-information, The mucus in picture b is actually masking bone.

It dosnt make the xray look normal or passable, but mucous can mask scar tissue

Okay, sure, whatever... I'm the one who placed useless x-ray comparison pics in a thread asking how to trick the TB X-ray exam.

My point stands.
