Before entering into controlled areas for the first time, you need to undergo
special medical screening for ionizing radiation.
If you are only handling X-ray apparatus producing less than 1 MV outside the controlled areas, you do not need to undergo this screening.
Under the provisions of the Ordinance on Prevention of Ionizing Radiation Hazards, you must undergo this screening every six months after entering any controlled areas. At Tokyo Tech, special medical screening for ionizing radiation is available each April and October. All staff members should be sure to take this screening every six months. Students need to undergo screening every six months as well. If you are undergoing special medical screening for the first time, please apply in advance. This screening is distinct from your general medical checkup.
Even if you have received special medical screening as required and you miss one required screening, you will be taken off of the list and will not receive notification of the next screening. If you have already missed a screening, please contact us.
You need to apply for the special medical screening in advance. Please contact us at the following facilities:
Staff: Personnel Affair Division, Labor Office, Personnel Training Group, Staff Medical Examinations (Ext. 7186).

If you are handling radioisotopes, please take the special medical screening once every six months.
ฑThe health checkup for people handling radiation differs from regular
medical checkups. Some tests are not covered in regular medical checkups.
Please make sure to inform your medical institution that you are handling
radioisotopes and undergo special medical screening for ionizing radiation.
