Radiographer, in general, have a duty and responsibility to audit includes examining patients for radio diagnostic including nuclear medicine and ultrasonography (USG), radiation Metabolic syndrome (MetS) (at least 3 of the following: abdominal adiposity, low HDL cholesterol, high triglycerides, hypertension, and impaired fasting glucose) increase the risk of incidence of cardiovascular disease, stroke and mortality of young people. Still, there are less data about MetS in Yogyakarta. So, the aim of this study is to detect the incidence of MetS in Yogyakarta and other variable related to MetS. A cross sectional study was done on a total of 141 subjects in Yogyakarta Province in September 2018. The subject was chosen by cluster sampling (4 Primary Health Care from 2 districts of 5 districts in Yogyakarta Province) then the researcher chose again who met the criteria. To detect metabolic syndrome in subjects, blood pressure, waist circumference, and blood triglyceride level were measured. 141 subjects were studied with 35 males and 106 females. There are 26,24 % subjects with MetS (34 females, 3 males). The positive correlation is between waist circumference and triglyceride level of subject (correlation coefficient = 0,4212). The significant correlation is among sexes and MetS, hypertension, triglyceride level (p< 0,05). The bigger waist circumference, the higher the triglyceride level is. Sex variable is related to blood pressure and triglyceride level incidence. Subjects with MetS, hypertension, and hyper triglyceride are higher in women compared with men.
