Where to Find Fukushima Radiation Health Survey Information: Fukushima Medical University's Radiation Medical Science Center Website
Fukushima Medical University's Radiation Medical Science Center opened a new website on January 10, 2019. The original English website, "Office of International Cooperation," is still active, although it seems to be updated at a lot slower pace nowadays. (It took 2 months for them to post English translation of the reports from the September 2018 Oversight Committee meeting, which used to come out in 3-4 weeks.)
The top page looks like this:
When you scroll down, 4 blue rectangles appear:
- Radiation Medical Science Center: scrolls down the screen to show a greeting and organizational information.
- Fukushima Health Management Survey: shows the report of the Fukushima Health Management Survey, with the current version being the "revised version" as of December 5, 2018. (The "original" version appears to have been deleted. For record, the current version is stored here.)
- Research/Publication: jumps to the Publications page of the Office of the International Cooperation
- Office of International Cooperation: jumps to the original website where official English translation of selected reports presented at the Oversight Committee meetings (here) and links to past conference and workshops (here) can be accessed.
If you are interested in information available in Japanese, click "Japanese Website" in the right upper corner of the top page. There are 3 blue rectangles with Japanese/English labels.
Radiation Medical Science Center: scrolls down to the greeting and organizational information.
Fukushima Health Management Survey: jumps to the top page of the Japanese website for the Radiation Medical Science Center's Fukushima Health Management Survey, which functions as an information hub for the Fukushima residents and includes all the basic information about each survey.
Research/Publications: jumps to the publications page of the above Japanese website.
＊If you are specifically looking for information on the Oversight Committee for the Fukushima Health Management Survey where the results of the Thyroid Ultrasound Examination (TUE) are reported, the Fukushima Prefecture website offers an easier access here (in Japanese).
Here's the screenshot of the partial list of the Oversight Committee meetings:
Dates for each Oversight Committee meeting (First through thirty-third at this time) are shown, and the right column has links to the details of each meeting including links to all the handout materials as well as the meeting minutes.
For instance, the 32nd Oversight Committee meeting details look like this:
The first section has a link to the meeting notice. The big middle section shows a list of the materials handed out at the meeting, not all of which are officially translated into English. The bottom section has a link to the meeting minutes.
Information on the Thyroid Examination Assessment Subcommittee can be similarly accessed here (in Japanese).
