Part II: Application of the concepts of exemption and clearance to natural radiation sources 9. html 10. jp/kosako/eng/modules/m0/ Network System for Radiation Emergency Medicine in Japan and the Role of Hiroshima University Kenji Kamiya Summary. On the basis of the lessons of the Tokai-mura nuclear criticality accident, Japan decided to develop a new system for the nation’s radiation emergency medicine.

The new Recommendations take account of new biological and physical information and trends in setting of protection standards. Although much more information has accumulated since 1990, the overall estimate of the risk of various levels of harmful effects following exposure to radiation remains fundamentally the same. Nevertheless, there are some differences in our understanding of how this risk is distributed across body organs, which result in some changes in the way the quantity of effective dose is calculated.

Today, cancer onset in atomic bomb victims continues to increase even after more than 60 years have passed. The big problem that genome damage science must solve is the health problems that continue for a lifetime after receiving only one radiation exposure. In addition to the Chernobyl nuclear accident and the Tokai-mura criticality radiation exposure accident, the world faces the threat of nuclear terrorism. For these reasons, the WHO and IAEA are pushing forward the maintenance of an international radiation emergency medicine system, and Japan is expected to have a big role.
