Can previous medical exams be re used in a new case?

Asked over 1 year ago - Los Angeles, CA

..... Immigrant visa was approved in 2006, came to the US, left the US in 2008 and never returned. Basically her status was abandoned. We opened a new I-130 case in July 2012 and was approved, and now pending at NVC. Once she is scheduled for consular interview, is she gonna be asked for new medical exams or will use the ones in old case?
