26 among 39 children in Ushiku city Ibaraki given “A2, B” results in thyroid inspection

September 7, 2014

21 children were given A2, and 5 children were given B among 39 thyroid testees, according to Ushiku city Ibaraki prefecture.

A2 is given when they find thyroid nodule (≦5.0mm) or cysts (≦20.0mm), B is given when they find thyroid nodule (≧ 5.1mm) or cysts (≧20.1mm).

The test was implemented from 11/1/2013 to 7/31/2014.

The testees were under 18 years old when 311 took place including unborn children.

However, the municipal government didn’t allow children to have the test when they have the subjective symptoms.  If they include these children, the ratio of A2 & B might be higher than now.
