Department of Radiological Sciences
By teaching specialized knowledge of radiology and findings related to the most recent technologies, this department aims (1) to cultivate advanced radiological professionals who can apply creative and scientific thought processes, and (2) to cultivate individuals who not only have advanced knowledge and skills in their own field of specialization, but who also understand research findings in other fields and are able to develop advanced medical technologies by integrating that information.
In the master’s program, the departments in the public health sciences have adopted a comprehensive curriculum that takes into account the potential enrollment of students with undergraduate backgrounds in science and engineering and students from other graduate schools. Also, efforts are made to foster the development of medical physicists certified by the Japanese Board for Medical Physicist Qualification.
Classes consist of lectures and workshops based on the research findings of the instructor and the latest research trends, and they aim to impart the most up-to-date findings to students.
A full range of experiments and research can be conducted thanks to the ample availability of lab and research equipment on campus, including diagnostic equipment such as a X-ray CT (multi detector-row computed tomography, MDCT) scanner, a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, a computed radiography (CR) machine, a at panel detector (FPD), and a single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) scan-ner, as well as radiological therapy equipment such as an un-sealed radioactive isotope (RI) facility and a linear accelerator. This department strives to develop cutting-edge therapeutic technologies, medical imaging processing technologies, and radiation measurement methods.
