Reviews

"Stylistically resembling a fictional narrative, this grim chronicle of Ouchi's deterioration demonstrates the humanity and pyschology of the medical profession in extreme situations. In that sense, it s an interesting companion to [Osamu Tezuka's] Black Jack manga. Think of it as such a nightmarish episode of House that as a result of watching it you resolve never to tune into the series again."

"Harnessing the atom's energy can help, even save, mankind or lead to its destruction. This is the sad, cautionary tale of things gone awry, a noble effort by Japanese physicians to save Mr. Ouchi's life and of our limited ability to deal with the consequences of mistakes in this arena."

"Radiation injuries are potentially complex, often involving a combination of different types of radiation energy. The Tokaimura accident reminds us of these complexities as well as the importance of accurate information flow from the site of the incident to the healthcare provideer in the hospital. New knowledge was gained regarding optimal management of acute radiation toxicity."
