Chest x-ray for Partner Visa

Hi All,

I went for medicals today, and am a bit worried about my chest x-ray.
I had to have three x-rays (two front on and one on the side) but they didn't tell me why, and am now a bit worried about it!

Can anyone tell me if there was something wrong, would they have let me know there? What are other people's experiences of this (I am applying onshore).

Also, is there any way I can get a copy of the results?

Thank you for the help!

I think this is the way they take a standard xray. That way they have a complete view of your lungs.

Thank you for your reply!

Is this what has happened with others who have been through the medical examination and chest x-ray?

I just can't remember hearing others having to have three x-rays, and having to get a side one done too!

Worth asking The radiologist is allowed to give you a copy and might do if you ask. Possibly you can ask DIAC too, but I don't know.

When I had mine it was just the one side, I only had one done. I asked the doctor while I was there, if anything was wrong would I hear about it (as you're not allowed to open the envelope they send you) and she told me they would call if any text results came back abnormal.

I would maybe give them a phone call to check if you're worried - peace of mind and all that!

Hi All,

Thank you for the replies!

Who do I contact if I want to request a copy of the results? I haven't sent my application yet (I was waiting for my medical results first), so do I just contact Medibank?

Thank you for your help!

I don't know anything about onshore applications sorry - but sure why not try? let us know what they say, might help anyone else searching the board on this topic.

I was told by my panel doctor, and I think it also says so on the information booklet of DIAC, that if the medical finds anything, this would have to be disclosed to the applicant straight away.

Hi,
I recently did mine in Sydney and I also did three x-rays. I received my results which were sealed but I didn't get a call from the doctor.... and they say "no news is good news")!

Hi FT,

Thank you for your reply!

What were the three chest x-rays they made you do?
Did you have to do two from the back and one from the side of your body (this is what I had to do)?

Also, did they mention why you had to do three when you were there?

Thank you for your help!
