Domestic Intercomparison Study for the Performance of Personnel Dosimeters
Kim, Jang-Lyul ; Chang, Si-Young ; Kim, Bong-Hwan ;
Journal of Radiation Protection and Research, volume 21, issue 3, 1996, Pages 147~153
The Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute(KAERI) conducted a intercomparison study for personnel dosimetry services in Korea to enhance the accuracy and precision of the dosimetry system. Nine types of dosimeters(6 TLD, 3 film badge) from 7 institutions took part in this intercomparison study. Each participant submitted 30 dosimeters including transit control for irradiations. Both TLDs and film badges were irradiated with Cs-137 gamma, Sr/Y-90 beta and 4 X-ray beams in ISO wide series. Four dosimeters were irradiated on phantom with same dose equivalent for each field category. The delivered dose equivalent was in the range of
. The participants assessed the results of their dosimeter readings in terms of the ICRU operational quantities for personal monitoring, Hp(10) and Hp(0.07). Most participants except 1 dosimeter estimated the delivered dose equivalent with biases less than
for Cs-137 and Sr/Y-90. But for X-rays, the biases exceeded
in some cases bacause the dose evaluation algorithm was based on the ANSI N13.11 X-ray fields which are different from those given by ISO.
Development of ALARA Checklist for an ALARA Design Review

Journal of Radiation Protection and Research, volume 21, issue 3, 1996, Pages 155~166
All nuclear facilities and components should receive an initial ALARA review before the installation and thereafter whenever modifications are planned. A major objective in design aspects of ALARA is to identify areas where specific engineering input can reduce personnel exposure. The basic factors which should be considered in the ALARA design review process include curd control, shielding and isolation of radiation sources accessibility maintainability and reliability, and contamination control. Because many diverse aspects must be considered in the ALARA design reviews, a proper ALARA checklist should be used to aid the designer in preventing any of the ALARA review considerations from being slipped away. In order to develop the practical ALARA checklist, check items for basic ALARA factors have been prepared, and what should be considered in reviewing each item has been discussed here. Based on the proposed factors and items, an ALARA checklist was developed.
Measurement of Detection Efficiency of Plastic Track Detector to

Journal of Radiation Protection and Research, volume 21, issue 3, 1996, Pages 167~173
The calibration method for the detection efficiency of solid state track detector to alpha is presented, and the detection efficiency of CN-85 and LEXAN to alpha is measured by this method. The results are 97% and 57% in CN-85 and LEXAN, respectively. The reason for a better result in CN-85 in not only the high sensitivity but also the low energy dependency with comparing for LEXAN. The peak detection efficiency is 3MeV and 1.8MeV in CN-85 and LEXAN, respectively.
Prediction of Fatal Radiation-Induced Cancer for Korean Using the BEIR V Method
Hwang, Won-Tae ; Han, Moon-Hee ; Cho, Gyu-Seong ;
Journal of Radiation Protection and Research, volume 21, issue 3, 1996, Pages 175~182
The lifetime fatal radiation-induced cancer for Korean has been estimated for both single and continuous radiation exposure using the BEIR V method. In case of single exposure, the major radiation-induced cancer type for young and old age is digestive and respiratory cancer, respectively. For the whole population of Korean, the major radiation-induced cancer type is digestive cancer. In case of 1mGy/yr continuous exposure from birth to death, the contribution of total radiation-induced cancer mortality to natural cancer mortality is about 3%.
Ten Years since Chernobyl Accident: a Review of Radiological Cosequences
Lee, Jai-Ki ;
Journal of Radiation Protection and Research, volume 21, issue 3, 1996, Pages 183~200
Many information channels have dealt with the radiological consequences of the Chernobyl accident in different voices ever since the time of the accident. Large differences in the data about the amount of released radioactivity, losses of life, environmental effects and economic damage confuse the information receiving group. The intention of this paper is to provide an insight to the consequences of the accident through review of the reports and articles on the given issue and the scientific background. The formal reports reviewed include those from IAEA, EC, OECD/NEA, the governments of the two most-affected countries; Belarus and Ukraine. Much consideration was paid to make the text as plain as possible.
Medical Preparedness in Radiation Accidents

Radiation and radioactive materials serve man in many beneficial ways. Diagnostic X-ray, radiation therapy, and other nuclear medicine uses of radioactivity save thousands of lives each year. Industrial application of radiation, such as radiography, make many manufactured products more reliable and less expensive. Nuclear power plants are producing more electrical power each year and reducing our dependence on imported oil. However, radiation can and dose produce harmful effects particularly as the reault of a radiation accident in which a victim receives as the result of a radiation accident in which a victim receives a large dose. Fortunately such accidents are very rare and recently we need more electric power produced by nuclear power plants. Considering increase of use of radiation or radioactive materials, we have to establish the radiological emergency response system prepared for radiation accidents.
On the Report Tendency of Mass Communication in Nuclear Accident and the Standpoint of Public Acceptance from a Intrinsic Point of View. (A Case Study of Quantitative Analysis in Connection with the Newspaper Report Especially in Korea.)

Journal of Radiation Protection and Research, volume 21, issue 3, 1996, Pages 217~253
Following after the Chernobyl accident. the response to the large scale nuclear accidents became a clear example to show how these accidents affect the public information that strongly depend on political, economical, and social factors. Futhermore, in present day although we live in the era of various information, as far as the problem of nuclear is concerned, the acceptance of the source of Information is always apt to limited. Therefore, in this investigations, as a case study, an attempt is to make the method of minimizing and a preparation to cope with the grope of countermeasure for psychologically unsettled and disordered problems that accepted from both of the unconfirmed and of the exaggerated circumstantial report of mass media as well as a clue to the probability under the condition of existence of major and minor nuclear accidents. In the present paper, it also intends to establish the terminology that covered all the part of nuclear field use in a writing guideline to the scientific column of nuclear accident as shown in the table. and several methodology in relation to the report tendency of mass communication in nuclear accident and the standpoint of public acceptance from a intrinsic point of view are discussed.
