Chest X-rays help detect lung abnormalities, which are either pre-existing or have developed during the worker’s employment. Pre-employment chest X-rays are a useful tool in understanding the lung health of job candidates and independently recording a benchmark prior to hire.
Common health issues that can be identified through baseline and annual chest X-rays include pulmonary disorders, cancer, cardiac disorders, and tuberculosis.
Having SureHire coordinate X-rays as part of the Lung Health Program has multiple benefits:
Simple Appointment Booking – SureHire supplies requisitions so that the worker is not required to schedule a doctor’s appointment to obtain a referral.
Consistency in Testing – X-rays are done through the SureHire national testing network to support a national workforce.
Fast Results – Results are distributed to the employer and worker through SureHire’s online results system. SureHire provides radiologist-interpreted chest X-ray results with any identified abnormalities triggering an automatic referral for further medical investigation.
