Health Physics Journal, Vol. 83, No. 1, July 2002
Four health physicists with heavy protective clothes are rushing to receive one of the three victims of the criticality accident in Tokai-mura in Japan in 1999, in front of the Medical Care Building for Radiation Emergency in National Institute of Radiological Sciences. They passed a mild case entering in assisted by rescue staff. See article by K. Miyamoto et al. on page 18 for more information.
