Our mission is to contribute to the development of the health science with education and studies of the physical sciences in radiology and radiological technology. Our concern is the bases of radiological technology as well as their clinical application.
In this field of the medical sciences, Prof. Tamura is concentrating on the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), appreciating its noninvasiveness not to adversely affect the human body. Dr. Shidahara aims to develop “beneficial” methodologies on quantitative PET and SPECT imaging.
The division is focusing on:
・Information on molecular motion in vivo acquired by MR diffusion imaging.
・Information on blood flow and oxidative metabolism obtained by MR perfusion imaging and its relevance to functions of ischemic tissue.
・Simulation study of pharmacokinetic and radiation physics in human body using PET and SPECT
