TOPIC: RADIATION DOSAGE REGISTRY SITE SET UP BY THE DEPARTMENT OF
The Department of Defense (DoD) launched today the Operation Tomodachi
Registry website. The website provides location-based radiation dose
estimate reports for adults and children comprising the DoD-affiliated
population on or near mainland Japan following the Great East Japan
Earthquake and Tsunami of March 11, 2011.
DoD-affiliated members who were in Japan during the nuclear reactor
crisis, medical providers, and the public at large will be able to download
location-based radiation dose estimate reports from the website. These
reports include medical interpretations and provide comparisons of the
Operation Tomodachi radiation doses with more commonly experienced radiation
The website also includes information on the event, DoD’s response to the
crisis, and answers to frequently asked questions. By the end of the
calendar year, individuals in the registry may request a dose assessment
that is individually tailored for them, based on more detailed location data
that they can provide using the “Contact Us” function on the Operation
Tomodachi Registry website.
After extensive environmental monitoring and analysis, it has been determined that none of the nearly 70,000 members of the DoD-affiliated population (service members, DoD civilian employees and contractors, and family members of service members and civilian employees) who were on or near the mainland of Japan between March 12 and May 11, 2011, are known to have been exposed to radiation at levels associated with adverse medical conditions.
The Operation Tomodachi Registry, which will be housed in a secure database containing the names, locations, and radiation doses for all members of the DoD-affiliated population, will be completed by Dec. 31, 2012. Personally identified information will be omitted from this website.
The registry can be found online at http://registry.csd.disa.mil/otr .
