Medical Surveillance

Medical surveillance examinations help to identify and monitor Ames Laboratory and ISU employees who work under conditions and with materials that have a potential health risk.  Some of these hazards include carcinogens, toxic chemicals, noise, lasers, and biological agents.  Examinations are done in order to prevent occupational related problems.  The history, review of exposures, physical examination, and associated laboratory tests provide an assessment of overall health.
