[en] A brief overview of the current status of Korean nuclear power development is first presented. The necessity of nuclear energy in Korea is then clarified. After presentation of these overview, the major issues of the Korean nuclear industry, such as the major obstacles for nuclear power development and the most weak areas of the Korea nuclear industry, are identified and discussed. Finally, as a conclusion, actions to be taken by the government and the nuclear industry in conjunction with increased nuclear power generation in Korea are presented. (Author)
[en] Picture archiving and communication system (PACS) is an image information technology system for the transmission and storage of medical images. In Korea the first full PACS was installed at Samsung Medical Center in 1994, but, the rate of distribution was very slow. The government's approval for the medical insurance reimbursement for full PACS examinations in November 1999 became the turning point. Thereafter the number of hospitals with full PACS has steeply increased. In September of this year, PACS was installed at 906 medical institutes, including most of university hospitals and general hospitals. The first full dental PACS was installed at Wonkwang University Dental Hospital in 2002. Now ten out of eleven university dental hospitals implemented full dental PACS. The current status and technological factors of dental PACS in Korean university dental hospitals and the future perspectives of dental PACS are described.
[en] In accordance with the Safeguards implementation approach, in the early 2000 the IAEA has introduced the scheme of enhanced cooperation between the ROK and the IAEA aimed to share efforts based on cost benefits between the SSAC and the IAEA at LWRs. In the last Joint Review Meetings and many working group meetings such as Enhanced Cooperation Task Force Group Meetings and Safeguards Implementation Working Group Meetings, both parties have emphasized the enhancement of the SSAC resource for a larger contribution to the Safeguards activities in almost all nuclear activities in the ROK. In parallel to this concept, both parties should keep into consideration the quality and the assurance of its independent Safeguards conclusions, respectively. This study suggests the feasible methodology on the Enhanced Cooperation between the ROK and the IAEA to maintain the effectiveness (achieving the Safeguards goals) and improve the efficiency
[en] Among the patients operated because of lumbar disc herniation from January 1973 to May 1979 at Korea University Hospital, 154 cases were analyzed radiologically and the following conclusions were obtained. 1. The ratio of male to female was 1.96 : 1. 2. The incidences of single and multiple involvement were 74.7% and 25.3%. 3. Most frequent level of lumbar disc herniation was L4-5 interspace. 4. The incidences of left, central and bilateral defects were 45.45%, 33.76%, 12.33% and 8.44% respectively. 5. The incidences of spina bifida and transitional vertebra were 24.04% and 9.09% respectively. 6. The overall mean of the lumbosacral angle was 33.97 .deg. 7. The overall mean depth of the lumbar lordosis was 8.48 mm. 8. The ratio of the height of L4-5 interspace to the shorter anteroposterior diameter of L-5 body was obtained by authors' idea. The mean ratios of male and female patients of L4-5 disc herniation which had no evidence of the narrowing of L4-5 interspace on simple radiologic finding were 0.3042 and 0.3064 respectively. So the ratio had a little value in the diagnosis of L4-5 disc herniation on simple radiologic study. 9. Myelography had high diagnostic accuracy, and the majority of the pseudonegative finding on lumbar disc herniation myelographically was seen at L4-5 disc herniation.
[en] Hilar displacement is one of the significant sign of pulmonary volume change. The hilar height ratio (HHR) is a value that express the normal position of hilum in its hemithorax, and it is calculated by dividing the distance from the hilum to the lung apex by the distance from the hilum to the diaphragm. Displacement of one hilum is usually easy to detect but both are displaced in the same direction especially, recognition is more difficult. Knowledge of normal HHR allows evaluation of hilar positional change even when the relative hilar position are not altered. Normal chest PA views of 275 cases taken at Korea University Hospital during the period of April 1978 to Jun 1979 were analyzed. The right hilum is positioned in lower half of the right hemithorax, while the left hilum is situated in the upper half of left hemithorax. The difference of hilar ratio according to age group is slight, but there is significant difference between right-HHR and left-HHR. The value of right-HHR is 1.28 ± 0.14, the value of left-HHR is 0.88 ± 0.09.

[en] The purpose of this study is to establish the overall nuclear regulatory technical requirement structure, which is comparable to the International Rule and trends to the future demand. The report begins with the assessment of the status and structures of the nuclear regulatory requirements of Korea, the United States of America, Canada, Japan, Germany, France, and IAEA. Then, the domestic regulatory technical requirement structures of the non-nuclear fields are evaluated. Based on the results of evaluation, the problems and the preliminary direction to the development of the overall hierarchy of the nuclear regulatory requirements are suggested
[en] This is an attempt to evaluate normal spleen size in the Koreans. Spleen scans were obtained in 29 patients who were admitted to the Seoul National University Hospital because of trivial illnesses. All scans were performed by use of 51Cr-labelled, heat-treated erythrocyte. As a simple screening criteria for the presence of splenomegaly, vertical height of the Spleen was considered to be the best one. After statistical analysis it was concluded that the upper limit of normal spleen height is 13 cm in anterior view and 14 cm in lateral view.
[en] Although the number of emergency managers has risen in South Korea (hereafter referred to as Korea) over the years, their role is not yet as defined and noteworthy compared to other professions because of its unidisciplinary approach. This article investigates how Korea has to improve emergency managers' disciplinary approach to ultimately contribute to the goal of effective transnational disaster management. This study uses qualitative content analysis of government policies, college curricula, nongovernmental organizations' (NGOs') emergency-manager certification, and mass media coverage to compare emergency managers' unidisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches. The key tenet is that Korea must change its emergency managers' unidisciplinary approach into a multidisciplinary approach because the former is less effective when dealing with complicated disaster management systems. To achieve this change, the stakeholders must carry out their assigned responsibilities under risk-oriented management. As for the study's international implications, developing nations may consider the enhancement of related educational curricula, collaborative learning, continuous evaluation, disaster awareness, and disaster prevention for the emergency managers' multidisciplinary approach.
