Fukushima hospital imported new WBC equipment, distributer "It can't measure internal exposure"


Kuwano kyoritsu hospital in Koriyama city held a press conference on 9/24/2012.

The hospital imported equipment to measure internal exposure from USA. It’s 2.3m high, 90cm wide, 60cm depth, weighs 1 ton. They announced it takes only 10 ~ 30 seconds to measure internal exposure, which is faster than usual whole body counter equipment to detect radiation accumulated in body. This new equipment was supposed to be able to identify the part of body where radiation is accumulated.

They are the first hospital to introduce this equipment in Japan.

However, on 9/28/2012, Technohill, the Japanese distributer of this equipment commented on their website that this equipement cannot measure internal exposure unlike the hospital explained on their press conference.

They import this equipment (Fast Track-Fibre) in Japan as a distributer. They state Fast Track-Fibre can only measure radiation attached to the outside of body, can not detect internal exposure.

Technohill is preparing for the legal action.

They adds, “The maker is Mirion Technologies(RADOS)GmbH from Germany, not from America. The hospital only imported this equipment from America. The maker does not know the hospital purchased this equipment.”

The price was 84,370 USD.



同社は輸入代理店としてこの装置(Fast Track-Fibre)を日本に輸入しています。
Fast Track-Fibreは体の表面に付着した放射性物質のみを検出でき、内部被ばくについては検出できないと同社は指摘しています。


また、Fast Track-Fibre の定価は、84,370ドルでした。

L’hôpital de Fukushima importe un nouvel appareil “pour mesurer l’exposition interne”. Le vendeur précise qu’il ne peut pas mesurer l’exposition interne

L'hôpital de Fukushima importe un nouvel équipement WBC

L’hôpital Kuwano kyoritsu de la ville de Koriyama a tenu une conférence de presse le 24 septembre 2021.

L’hôpital y dit avoir importé des USA un appareil mesurant l’exposition interne. C’est un portique de 2,3 m de haut, 90 cm de long, 60 cm de large et qui pèse 1 tonne. Ils ont annoncé qu’il ne lui faut que 10 à 30 secondes pour mesurer l’exposition interne, ce qui est bien plus rapide qu’avec les appareils habituels mesurant la radioactivité sur tout le corps. Ce nouvel équipement serait supposé être capable d’identifier en quels points du corps la radioactivité s’est accumulée.

Ils sont le premier hôpital à importer cet appareil au Japon.

Toutefois, le 28 septembre 2012, Technohill, le distributeur japonais de cet appareil a indiqué sur sont site Internet qu’il ne peut pas servir à mesurer l’exposition interne contrairement à ce que l’hôpital a expliqué au cours de sa conférence de presse.

Ils importent cet appareil (le Fast Track-Fibre) au Japon en tant que distributeurs. Ils affirment que le Fast Track-Fibre peut seulement mesurer la radioactivité fixée à l’extérieur du corps, qu’il ne peut détecter les sources de radiations internes.

Technohill prépare une action en justice.

Ils ajoutent que “le fabriquant est Mirion Technologies (RADOS) GmbH, en Allemagne et non pas en Amérique. L’hôpital a seulement importé cet appareil depuis l’Amérique. Le fabriquant ne sait même pas que l’hôpital a acheté cet appareil.”

Son prix était de 84 370,00USD.

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.
