Amazon Japan is currently listing the cover for the first 2019 issue of Shueisha's Grand Jump magazine, which reveals that Tomohiro Yokomaku and Taishi Mori's Radiation House manga will get a live-action television series. The issue will officially ship on December 5.

This year's 24th issue of the magazine had teased in November that the manga would have an "important announcement" in the issue out on December 5.

The manga centers on the medical professionals in the radiology department of a hospital. For example, medical radiographers use X-rays and CT scans to probe the causes of diseases and uncover pathological changes, while radiologists read the results and offer diagnoses.

Yokomaku and Mori launched the manga in Grand Jump in October 2015. Shueisha published the manga's sixth compiled book volume on July 19.

Yokomaku launched his Smoking Gun - Minkan Kasōken Chōsa'in Nagareda Midori (Smoking Gun – Civilian Forensic Research Investigator Midori Nagareda) forensic mystery manga with art by Shūji Takeya alongside Grand Jump magazine's launch in 2012. The manga ended in November 2014, and Shueisha shipped 10 compiled book volumes for the manga. The series received a live-action series that aired on Fuji TV from April to June 2014.

Mori's 2009-2013 manga Kyō no Asuka Show inspired an original web anime adaptation. Mori began Kuchibiru ni Uta o (A Song to Your Lips), a manga adaptation of Eiichi Nakata's original novel, in Shogakugan's Monthly Shonen Sunday (Gessan) magazine in 2013 and ended the series in 2014. A film adaptation of the manga opened in theaters in February 2015.
