You didn't cough like that during your examination yesterday, did you?

(Just kidding. )

All the more reason why this thread is so important. It's our only want to know what is happening with others so thereby having some frame of reference for our own process. Even the supervisors there was a little odd.

When I went to get my X-ray taken..the radiologist told me that the Berlin office is really fussy and that they send x-rays back to be redone for the silliest reasons.

On this one Kaplunk I have to back the embassy as Australia is a long way from other countries and as a result we dont have many of the diseases and health issues that plague countries that are joint by land or close by sea SOOOOOO much effort is gone to in order to ensure that we keep our country clear of diseases. This is why they are very particular with the xrays.

This is also why they are very tough at the airports with bio security as our fruit and plants are often untouched by issues in other parts of the world and it is critical that we don't let any such things into our environment to cause these issues here.

These are some of the reasons that make Australia such a great place to live...we are a very blessed country.

What I meant was that if the lungs are obviously clear from any thing but a hair happens to fall on a shoulder during the X-ray....they will send that back.....a hospital wont do that......they just like delaying things

From what I understand, there is a standard of how the xray must be taken and look for it to be accepted and there is good reasons for this. Most of the medicals from Europe are sent to Australia for verification as there are not the same level of checking done there as in Australia.

I have to disagree that they are just delaying things for no reason. I understand your frustration but I don't think they would do that for no reason as they would need to justify their actions, especially when it involves going back to an outside organisation and costing more money.

I found this in the lengthy details to radiographers about how to take xrays to ensure they are good and accurate and it might seem a repeat call for an xray in the case of hair on the shoulder is in the applicants favour as it can mimic a "lesion". Maybe the panel doctor was complaining because of his time and effort being doubled but it is for our benefit these things are done properly!

****************************

• Ensure that the following artefacts are excluded:
o braided hair overlying the apices can mimic a lesion
o development artefacts
o static marks
o dirty screens
o nail marks
o foreign bodies in cassettes
o When there is constant difference in the translucency between the right and left side of chest x-ray, ensure that the filter in the tube assembly is correctly positioned.

I have to agree on what Melandabdul has said, in regards to x rays, Berlin are not going to send them back for something small im sure about this, I am fortunate enough to work within the medical industry, the professor who performed my medical is also a colleque ( no he didnt do me or my son any favours lol) as he had ponted out Berlin run a tight shop but they cannot over rule his medical report on any patient, in other words if he says the medical is all ok Berlin cannot disaprove without good cause.
Kaplunk as Melandabdul has said we understand your fustration but i dont believe a medical will be sent back just to gain time, and as stated Australia is very strict about people entering with certain infections, and to be honest looking at the problems most european countries have with immigrants bringing in diseases i dont blame Australia for trying to keep there country free from infection.

You poor thing both Fustrel and myself know exactly what your going through we had the same CO, on the brighter side of things his cases have recently being passed over to another CO whom i can ( and im sure frustel will agree) verify is so fast and efficient you may be in for a nice surprise shortly. .

From July to February (7 months) they vanished, just to reappear last week and ask me for an updated police check to finalize our case.
This is good news they asked for the police check as i said things will move quite fast now you CO has changed especially if you have the same one as fustrel and i did.

Keep your chin up hun like many others your going through the stage of disapointment and fustration, but whe you least expect it your visa will come through, just a question to you do you know who you new CO is?
