Abstract

This article reports the results of an April 1998 survey conducted among radiotherapy technologists in the Kinki region in order to investigate their working conditions at that time. According to the results, 26.6% of the radiotherapy technologists were working exclusively with a specific modality, 37% worked concurrently with two modalities, and 36.4% worked with all modalities on shift rotation. Many of the respondents reported working alone. The number of radiotherapy technologists working exclusively with a specific modality increased in proportion to the number of beds, while that of radiotherapy technologists working concurrently with other modalities decreased in inverse proportion to the number of beds, and that of radiotherapy technologists on shift rotation remained at a constant level. Most of the radiotherapy technologists started work between 8:30 and 9:00 and finished at 17:00. Overtime work averaged one hour.
