    :confused: Potentially 'stupid question' ... but is question 69 on the DoDMERB Medical History questionnaire asking if I've ever had radio therapy or if I've ever had an x-ray ? And just for my information ... anybody else out there doing their DoDMERB overseas ?

    Hi NPGP:

    Most applicants on question 69 respond with the various X-rays, MRI's, and CT scans they may have had over the course of their life. This is totally appropriate for this question. If you've had actual radiation therapy, this also works in this block.

    If you are overseas, keep in mind that the contractor can only serve the USA and its territories. I recommend calling DoDMERB at 1-800-841-2706 to see if they could accommodate you somehow if that is your current situation.


    Cheers,
    Joe

    I am yet to get my file added to the DoDMERB system. A person from DoDMERB Help line suggested I did the exams in the U.S., however, because apparently sometimes some doctors from overseas do not fill everything up or something to the like.

    Good luck!

    Audiometer

    One further question - How are the Audiometer test results read and would it be possible to get an idea of an 'normal' range (ie: what's the qualification 'bottom line') ?
