Once a nuclear disaster or radiation accident occurs, it has a huge social impact such as radiation exposure. Although radiation exposure dose is measured with a dosimeter, etc., in the event of a large-scale radiation accident disaster that would expose the public, most citizens do not have a dosimeter, so the exposure dose has to measure in some way. This is a very important index because it can be used as a basis for making decisions when planning treatment for exposed persons, predicting the prognosis, and performing triage (patient distribution) for emergency medical treatment. Therefore, we focus on the relationship between radiation and blood antioxidant capacity and aim to establish an exposure dose estimation method and a health hazard assessment method in the event of a large-scale radiation disaster.
