Revised version of Dosimetry System 2002 (DS02R1)

Furuta, Takuya

Nippon Hoken Butsuri Gakkai Homu Peji (Internet), 2 Pages, 2017/10

The current standard of the international radiation protection is determined through life span study of atomic bomb survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and individual radiation dose estimates for each survivor calculated by Dosimetry System 2002 (DS02). Dose estimates in DS02 are based on input data such as location and shielding condition of the survivor. Therefore accuracy of dose estimates and accordingly that of radiation risk evaluation are largely affected by the accuracy of the input data. In this review, we present an article DS02R1 discussed improvement of the input data of individual atomic bomb survivors for DS02 and its consequence keeping the core system unchanged.

The first and second environmental releases of man-made $$^{239+240}$$Pu came from nuclear explosions at Alamagordo and Nagasaki in 1945. The release at Nagasaki was more serious than at Alamagordo, because it happened in an area with a high population density. Unfissioned $$^{239+240}$$Pu and various fission products have been interacting here with various environmental materials (soils, sediments, and plants) under wet and temperature conditions for more than 45 years. To assess the environmental mobility of $$^{239+240}$$Pu, the distributions of radionuclides from this release were investigated at Nishiyama where heavy black rain containing unfissioned plutonium and fission products fell 30 minutes after the nuclear explosion. The vertical distributions of $$^{137}$$Cs and $$^{239+240}$$Pu were determined in unsaturated soil cores up to 450cm deep. Most radionuclides were found in the soil column 30cm from the ground surface. However, $$^{239+240}$$Pu were detected in the groundwater as well below a depth of 200cm. No $$^{137}$$Cs was found below 40cm from the ground surface or in groundwater. These observations reveal that about 3% of the total $$^{239+240}$$Pu have been migrating in the soil at a faster rate than the remaining $$^{239+240}$$Pu. Sharp peak of $$^{137}$$Cs and $$^{239+240}$$Pu, indicating heavy deposition from the Nagasaki local fallout of 1945, were found in sediment cores collected from the Nishiyama reservoir. $$^{239+240}$$Pu peaks were unexpectedly discovered in pre-1945 sediment core sections. NO $$^{137}$$Cs was found. By contrast to the distribution in sediment cores, $$^{137}$$Cs in tree rings had spread by diffusion from the bark to the center of the tree without holding a fallout deposition record. Most of the $$^{239+240}$$Pu was distributed in the tree rings following a similar deposition record to that found in sediment cores. Furthermore, a very small amount of $$^{239+240}$$Pu (about 1%) was found unexpectedly in pre-1945 tree rings. The only reasonable ...

Study on Assessment of Cancer Risk due to Radiation using the State Space Model; Merge cancer model with epidemiology data

Shimada, Kazumasa

no journal, , 

Cancer risk assessment of radiation is used a dose response based on epidemiology data. To develop more scientific and reasonable risk assessment, it is important to introduce cancer model considering cell mutation to risk assessment. However, it is not easy to gain cell mutation parameters by experiments. In this research, I used the State Space Model to combine the epidemiology data of atomic bomb survivor and cancer model considering cell mutation to calculate model parameters each radiation doses and ages.

Forward calculations with isotropic DS02 fluences and adult male and female phantoms

Endo, Akira

no journal, , 

Individual doses for the Life Span Study (LSS) of atomic bomb survivors have been estimated using the Dosimetry System 2002 (DS02). DS02 estimates individual doses using organ dose database calculated by three age-specific mathematical phantoms (infant, child and adult) developed in 1980s, distance from the hypocenter, and shielding conditions. Nowadays more anatomically realistic phantoms, voxel type and polygon mesh type, have been developed, and the use of these phantoms will improve assessment of organ doses of the atomic bomb survivors. The study compares organ doses calculated using mathematical and voxel phantoms of adult and quantifies dosimetric impacts of the use of the new phantoms on the assessment of organ doses.
