An extensive study of internal radiation exposure in Fukushima Prefecture children detected no radioactive cesium among the examinees, according to the results of a study published Friday.

The study, the first of its kind, involved over 2,700 infants and small children mostly from Fukushima who could have been exposed to radiation during and after the Fukushima No. 1 power plant crisis in 2011. The children were examined by three local medical institutions: Hirata Central Hospital, Minamisoma Municipal General Hospital and Tokiwakai Hospital.
