      Unlikely.

        I don’t think insurance covers a prophylactic appendectomy.

        However if they want the produce done in my garage then maybe?

        Yeah I don’t think it’s terribly necessary. Just abx and ship when possible.

          Ethically I wouldn’t have a problem with doing it. Not sure insurance would approve though.

            I wonder if they have a guy or gal and hospital that does this. Seems like they would have to.

              this thread made me wonder something i've wondered for a long time: when you secure a nomination for potus do you think you just get a panscan CT if you haven't had one before?

              i bet they do, along w/ a brain MRI to look for small mets etc.

                  being of sound body or mind are clearly not requisites, based on last two.

                      Dodos went distinct partly due to introduction of dogs to Mauritius.

                        Would you get those studies yourself right now if offered for free?

                          tough choice even as rad. Going to find a ton of incidental BS, just hard to know when it's worth it. Find a 1 cm "indeterminate" adrenal nodule which is 99.9 % likely an adenoma, a 4 mm pulmonary nodule, even less likely early cancer, some questionable cystic pancreatic lesion, again likely worthless. Probably thousands to tens of thousands of these situations for every rando RCC you find or early panc adeno.

                          Tough to catch a non-obstructing colon mass. Way rather have a colonoscopy for that. GBM sure though

                            I agree with pan, we take zero effort to assure any kind of competency or quality or assurance of any kind whatsoever.

                              probably so

                              maybe skip the neck

                                Only two problems:
                                1. Agreement on the criteria and testing.
                                (Examples: SAT’s, MCAT’s, Step tests).
                                2. Finding two sane individuals that would even consider the job. (the damage to family and life is devastating)..
                                I look forward to your screening standards.
                                (For example: female and person of color has been used). This should be a classic.
