Yamashita banned recording findings suggestive of thyroid nodule

Following up this article..7290 Bq/Kg from carnation in Fukushima

In the symposium, a pulmonologist, Dr. Okayama gave a comment about the current situation of Japanese medical industry.

He is from Sendai Miyagi. He attended the symposium about radiation therapy held on 4/21/2012, where the chairman was Yamashita Shunichi.

When he sees carotid by ultrasonic echo for the treatment of arterial sclerosis on this ordinary work, he can see thyroid as well.

He often finds thyroid tumor.

Ultrasonic echo can be used by a doctor and  engineer, but both of them are supposed to record findings suggestive of thyroid tumor or cyst even if it was originally to see carotid.

However, Yamashita Shunichi requested doctors in the symposium not to record the findings because it causes unnecessary concern of patients.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
