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.
