The objective of the IME is to detect active TB in immigrants prior to arrival in Canada to ensure that they are treated and are no longer infectious on arrival。
CIC, in consultation with Canadian TB specialists, assesses chest x-rays for characteristics of active TB disease or “inactive” infection. CIC identifies “old healed” or “inactive pulmonary TB as follows: a. history of treated active TB and/or b. abnormal chest x-ray suggestive of TB and i) two chest x-rays taken at an interval of three months apart with stable appearance and three negative sputum smears and cultures; or ii) two chest x-rays taken at an interval of six months apart with stable appearance.
The surveillance could be up to three years but it depends on the clinical status of the person and the physician’s decision (the physician can decide that the person doesn’t need further investigation or follow up).
