Radioisotope Center Medical Division
１. History and Purpose
The RIC, the medical division was originally established as The Central Buildings (The former first Hospital buildings) of Radioisotope Experiments in 1960. The present experimental facilities was newly built in 1970 and called The Radioisotope Center, Nagoya University School of Medicine.
The staffs, researchers and students of mainly the School of Medicine or University Hospital are working for researches.
The Radioisotope Center promotes research and education using radiation such as radioisotopes and X-rays. The Center manages radioactive materials and X-ray equipments, provides training in safe handling, and conducts basic research on the application and safe handling of radiation.
2. The contents of activities
1) Radiation safety control
Control of radioactive materials, radiation worker and environment of facility according to laws and ordinances. Maintenance of the facility for safe handling of radiation.
2) Education and Training
Planning and implementation of the required lecture and training on safe handling under the laws and ordinances concerning RI and X-ray.
3) Support for common use of facility
Provision of experimental laboratory space and instruments in the controlled area for research using radioactive materials. Preparation of various radiation detectors and instruments for researchers including undergraduate students.
