The main hazard in the early phase after the accident was due to radioiodine. Doses to the thyroid were estimated separately for (i) zones of strict control, (ii) the most contaminated provinces and (iii) the whole central European region of the USSR. Distinction was made between the children under the age of 7 years at the time of the accident and...

This is a report presented at the general meeting of the Academy of Medical Sciences of the USSR in Moscow on March 21-23, 1989, summing up the investigations on the ecological features and medico-biological aspects of the Chernobyl accident. After a brief report on the specific features of radiation and hygienic conditions beyond the 30 km zone, t...

... Such uncertainties in the measurements made with the DP-5 instruments resulted in additional errors in the determination of the 131 I thyroidal content in comparison with the measurements made with the SRP-68-01 instruments in hospitals when the subjects had washed themselves and contaminated clothes had been removed before the measurements were conducted. Three groups of reliability were introduced by Gavrilin et al. (1992) to reflect different conditions of determination of the thyroidal 131 I content: Group 1 (highest reliability), Group 2 (intermediate reliability), and Group 3 (lowest reliability). For Group 1, the GSD of the distribution of the values of G(t m,i ) is assessed at 1.3 taking into account the variation of the calibration coefficient as a function of individual variability of the thickness of the tissue overlapping the thyroid and of geometrical size of the thyroid. ...
... It is expected that during the early phases after the accident, workers may have received a higher dose, in particular those workers having particular expertise, who could not easily be replaced by others. Table 1 presents the information concerning the distribution of doses among liquidators which had been published by the time the ECP-7 programme began [2]. ...
... The experience gained from the Chernobyl accident has shown that special attention should be given to investigation of thyroid cancer incidence among the population due to the potential exposure to radioiodine released from the reactor. Multiple studies have revealed an increase in thyroid cancer incidence among residents of the areas contaminated by the Chernobyl accident, when compared with baseline national rates in Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine (Ilyin et al., 1990;Tronko et al., 2006;Balonov and Zvonova, 2002;Likhtarov et al., 2006;Jacob et al., 2006a;. It has also been demonstrated that those who were children at exposure should be regarded as a high-risk group with respect to the development of thyroid cancer following radiation exposure (Likhtarov et al., 2006;Zablotska et al., 2011;Jacob et al., 2006b;Walsh et al., 2009;Ivanov et al., 2012;Valentin, 2007). ...
