Medical Exam in K1 Visa

What? :blink:

Edit:

Apparently someone else suggested this in another thread.

Although it seems a bit of a strange suggestion.

The x-ray is a test for TB, as far as I'm aware.

If you have TB, there's nothing that drinking any combination of liquids is going to do to help you.

If you don't, then you should be fine.

There really isn't any need for any specialized drink.

And I doubt it has any effect.

They look at enough x-rays that they should be reasonably good at detecting the difference between a smudge on the film or an old scar from something that might be an active TB infection. If they do detect something then getting a sputum test is actually a good thing, and might even save your life. The x-ray can detect the infection while it's still fairly small and relatively easy (albeit time consuming) to treat. The infection grows very slowly, and responds to treatment just as slowly. If you waited until you had severe symptoms then it could kill you before the treatment could kill the infection.

No. A cold or flu is a viral infection that infects individual cells in your respiratory system. The infection causes inflammation, but this inflammation would not be detectable as mass in an x-ray. TB is a bacterial infection that grows in colonies within your lungs. The bacterial mass is detectable by x-ray.

Cold or flu virus infects only the cells near the inner surface of your lungs. These cells die and are replaced by new cells, so there is usually no scarring. TB kills cells much deeper, and usually causes permanent scarring of the lung tissue. These scars are also detectable by an x-ray. Although they have a higher mass than the normal lung tissue, they have a lower mass than an active TB bacterial colony. An experienced radiologist can tell the difference between an active TB colony and a scar from a previous infection.

First they give you a shot..that's the test for TB. Only if it turn out positive you need the xray. The TB test will turn out positive not only if you have TB but also if you did receive a TB vaccine ( compulsory vaccine in some countries for kids/teenagers). If you can prove you had a tb vaccine in the past, no need for an xray.

Your information is incorrect. St. Lukes does not administer skin tests for TB. Every adult is required to have an x-ray.

That is correct, a skin test is usually done first then a x-ray is needed if the results are positive on the skin test. But since the Philippines give out TB vaccinations, the results will almost always come out as a false-positive, so that's why they go directly to x-rays to get confirmation right away.

Hello is bear brand sterilized milk and pineapple juice really effective 100% in preparation for XRAY exam?! Thanks!

What ever floats your boat!!! Milk products create mucous which coats the linings of the lungs. Maybe this product creates more then most. Maybe the enzymes act to congeal the mucous to cover the scar tissue? I have heard this from more than one individual. I think this is used to normalize blood chemistry. The worst thing that could happen is an upset stomach and the "RUNS".
