I'm going to work in a pasta manufacturing company/factory. Egyptian law states that I must not catch any contagious diseases to be able to work there. I was asked to do a chest x-ray test.
The report of the test says:
- Clear both lung fields and both C/P angles.
- Normal cardio-thoracic ratio.
I wonder how can doctors diagnose any diseases from this test?! It's just a test on bones of the rib cage.
I'm also asked to do a stool test and I found this test is reasonable. For me, the only reason for the chest test is that the government wants to collect money from people by doing these tests.
