A new method for extracting the hyperfine anomaly from experimental hyperfine structure constants is suggested. Instead of independent high-precision measurements of the nuclear magnetic dipole moment, precise measurements of magnetic dipole hyperfine interaction constants for two atomic states and a theoretical analysis can be used. This can lead to determination of hyperfine anomaly for radioactive isotopes where the nuclear magnetic dipole moment is not known with high accuracy.
