Annual report of National Institute of Radiological Sciences of the fiscal year 1994

Abstract

In this institute, many valuable results have been obtained from the investigations on somatic effects of radiation and the prevention, diagnosis and treatments as well as medical use of radiation. Since the mortality of cancers has been rising with the coming of aging society, the social interests in medical utilization of radiation has been increasing. Development of a heavy ion accelerator for cancer therapy called as HIMAC has been progressed as a part of 10-year project for cancer prevention and in this year, a clinical study using the apparatus was started. Further, a general research protect ``heavy particle project research`` was started to advance the clinical studies using the heavy ion accelerator, the clinical and diagnostic researches and biological, physical and engineering researches. This project has progressed aiming to establish a center of excellence (COE) for heavy particle medicine in the world. In addition, 4 special researches; (1) Biological investigation on radiation exposure detriment and its modifying factors, (2) Analysis of human genome regions involved in biological effects of radiation, (3) Status of radioactive substances in environments and estimation of the exposure dose and (4) Development of leading tracers using cycrotron-produced nuclides and application to elucidation of biological functions were  More>>
