Important information for female students

  1. Female students are advised to wear a plain T-shirt (one-colour only) with no buttons, logo, emblem or pattern. This allows the X-ray to be taken without any change of clothes. Otherwise, you may have to purchase and change into a disposable gown for the X-ray examination.

  2. For female students who are expecting their menstrual period to coincide with the health screening, please arrange for a date that is at least one week after the last day of your period. This is to avoid having to come back a second time to complete the urine test, as an ongoing or recent period will interfere with the results of the urine test.
