Fukushima Prefecture has decided to check the internal radiation exposure of residents near the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant and adjacent areas with high radiation levels.

In Fukushima, there are mounting concerns among locals over the health effects of radiation after the nuclear accident at Fukushima Daiichi plant.

The prefecture had already decided to conduct health checks on all citizens, but will now assess residents’ internal exposure to radiation from breathing and eating.

The targets will be residents near the plant and people who live in adjacent areas with high radiation levels.

A device called a “whole-body counter” will be used to precisely measure radiation.

But the prefecture currently has only one device and can screen just 10 people per day. It is urging research institutes and others with the device outside the prefecture to help them.

Fukushima is also studying whether it can fetch 2 devices from Okuma Town, which lies inside the no-go zone.
