Frequently Asked Questions

Refugees  – please call the office.

I am pregnant, can I defer a chest X-RAY?

Yes. It is your responsibility to complete the X-RAY after birth and notify our office when it is done.
Please provide your visa office with a copy of the Pregnancy Deferral Document.

If the client chooses to defer her chest x-ray (CXR) because of pregnancy, the following steps apply:

  • eMedical informs IRCC electronically when a CXR is deferred. The health case is put on hold when an applicant is pregnant and chooses to defer her CXR.
  • eMedical generates a CXR requisition and instructions, which are then provided to the applicant.
  • eMedical generates a “Pregnancy Deferral Letter” with instructions for the applicant.

If the applicant is greater than 20 weeks gestation she may wish to discuss proceeding with the x-ray.

How long is the exam valid for?

It is valid for 12 months.

Do I have to schedule Blood Work and Chest X-Ray?

No, we will schedule your blood work and X-Ray for you at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital to be done on the same day.

Can I have a copy of my report?

Yes. Notify us at the end of your exam that you wish to receive a copy. The copy will be emailed when it is submitted to IRCC.
