A nuclear criticality accident occurred in Japan on September 30, 1999, which resulted in severe exposure of three victims to mixed flux of neutrons and gamma-rays. Estimated average doses for the three victims were 5.4 Gy of neutrons and 8.5 Gy of gamma-rays for Patient A, 2.9 Gy of neutrons and 4.5 Gy of gamma-rays for Patient B, and 0.81 Gy of neutrons(More)
A criticality accident occurred on September 30, 1999, at the uranium conversion plant in Tokai-mura (Tokai-village), Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan. When the criticality occurred, three workers saw a "blue-white glow," and a radiation monitor alarm was sounded. They were severely exposed to neutron and gamma-ray irradiation, and subsequently developed acute(More)
Exposure of bone marrow cells to alpha-particle radiation causes various types of chromosome abnormalities and hematological malignancies. We performed chromosome analysis of hematopoietic stem cells from the bone marrow of 52 Japanese patients with thorotrastosis and 21 age-matched controls. The frequency of cells with stable chromosome abnormalities was(More)
With the addition of scattering nanoparticles to dye-doped spherical droplets, lasing has been observed with well-defined thresholds in input-output data. One-order or more magnitude enhancement of peak intensity from droplet emission has been obtained with certain (optimum) additive scattering particles compared with nonadditive scattering particles (neat(More)
One order or greater of magnitude enhancement of lasing emission is confirmed experimentally from liquid microdroplets of Acridine Orange dye mixed with the fat emulsion Intralipid-10% suspension as highly scattering media, compared with pure dye-doped droplets. This novel method that makes use of a high-gain laser dye soft scatter microsystem allows for a(More)
A reconstruction method for transillumination laser CT using optical heterodyne detection is proposed. Laser CT does not obey the Radon transform due to surface effects, which occur as a result of refractive index mismatch and bring about annulus artifact. Optical attenuation with surface effects is described using an affine model. In addition, the(More)
The coherent detection imaging (CDI) method uses the optical heterodyne detection technique. CW and single frequency lasers having long coherence lengths are used to exploit the maximum advantages of heterodyne detection, such as high directionality, selectivity and sensitivity. The CDI method based on optical heterodyne detection enables selective(More)
