Well come to health care magic
Dear patient, a pulmonological clearence is must from the employers point of veiw because he has to ensure that the other people working in his company wouldn't get effected, though i hope that are perfectaly fine, wouldn't need any treatement because you don't have any symptoms but only a scar shadow on X-RAY but this clearence will be only given by a pulmonologist who will have to see you in person first , clinically examine you, and may order some test to make sure that you don't have any active infection and then he can issue you the clearence
best of luck for your job
