It largely appears that appropriate key actions were taken by the Japanese authorities during the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility event that should mitigate any radiologic health impact.
AAPM TG 158: Measurement and calculation of doses outside the treated volume from external-beam radiation therapy.
Task Group 158 was formed to provide guidance for physicists in terms of assessing and managing nontarget doses and makes recommendations for both clinical and research practice.

Incorporating patient-specific data into dose estimates is a worthwhile effort for characterizing patient dose, and the specific dosimetric information assists in the justification of risk and optimization of PET/CT.

Radiation safety in the treatment of patients with thyroid diseases by radioiodine 131I : practice recommendations of the American Thyroid Association.
Recommendations, complying with Nuclear Regulatory Commission regulations and consistent with guidelines promulgated by the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement (NCRP-155), can help physicians and patients maintain radiation safety after treatment with radioactive iodine of patients with thyroid diseases.

It is concluded that the mechanisms of action for many biological endpoints may be different at low doses from those observed at high doses; that acute doses <100 mSv may be too small to allow epidemiological detection of excess cancers given the background of naturally occurring cancers.
Quality improvement guidelines for recording patient radiation dose in the medical record for fluoroscopically guided procedures.
ICRP Publication 139: Occupational Radiological Protection in Interventional Procedures
Advice is provided on specific issues, such as assessment of effective dose from dosimeter readings when an apron is worn, estimation of exposure of the lens of the eye (with and without protective eyewear), extremity monitoring, selection and testing of protective garments, and auditing the interventional procedures when occupational doses are unusually high or low.
Realistic Approach to Estimate Lens Doses and Cataract Radiation Risk in Cardiology When Personal Dosimeters Have not Been Regularly Used
The experimental results of this study allow for realistic estimations of the dose to the lenses of the eyes from the workload of the cardiologists and from the level of use of radiation protection tools when personal dosimeters have not been regularly used.
