Why When The MCU Was Asked To Have A Chest X-ray Again?
Morning, so this is it, I have a work test and MCU. My first MCU was sent to a lab outside the company, already tested for blood, urine, blood pressure, hearing, eyes, etc. including lung X-rays. then a week later the company was invited again for the MCU test with the company doctor. After that, doctors from the company only questioned the lung X-ray, he said if the results were doubtful, as a result I was told to have another X-ray test at the hospital he recommended and if it had been tested to submit the results to the company’s doctor. I went directly there. after I have been x-rayed, the result is:
Hello Yora, thank you for asking.
Medical check-ups before being accepted at a company are often enough to determine success. At the MCU, a basic physical examination, an interview about the history of the disease, a history of surgery, a history of accidents, a history of drug use, reproductive history, and others In the MCU, supporting examination procedures are also carried out such as checking the direction in the lab, X-ray, ecg, vision test, hearing test, and so on. The purpose of the MCU is to screen for the possibility of risk factors for a disease, to find out if conditions that have ever had can be repeated again and whether these conditions can interfere with performance. MCU can also be used for early detection of health problems in asymptomatic people.
The results of this MCU will be one of the considerations whether someone is able to work in the field. Based on the results you wrote down, at the top of your left lung there is a picture of scar tissue. Scarring usually occurs after a tissue infection. The location of the scar tissue at the top of the lungs is generally suspected as scarring of pulmonary TB infection. The possibility of this is what makes your doctor instruct you to re-X-ray, to look for certainty. But you do not need to worry, because from the photo it is said that there is no visible process of lung infection that is still active. This means that most of the time your lungs are in good condition. The doctor will adjust the x-ray results with the presence or absence of symptoms in a person. Please do not despair yet. Stay healthy by eating high nutritional foods, try to find time to exercise, avoid cigarettes or cigarette smoke, improve room ventilation.
Thus the info from me, I hope you managed to get a position at the company. Regards.
