Description of graduate studies: Radiological Technology

In the field of radiological technology, the aim of the Graduate School of Health Sciences is to nurture medical technicians, researchers and educators who have mastered skills and expertise as highly specialized professionals, who have acquired the abilities to apply these skills and expertise in an integrated manner, autonomously search for the truth based on unique ideas, and exercise leadership in the world of healthcare and in team medical care.
Programs offered in the Master’s Course include medical physics, bio-information measurements, and medical imaging and diagnostic imaging technology in the area of Medical Informatics, Science and Technology. Also radiation life science, radiotherapeutic technology, nuclear medicine technology and radiological health science in the area of Radiological Health Supporting Sciences.
Programs offered in the Doctor’s Course include medical physics and medical image analysis and diagnosis in the area of Medical Informatics, Science and Technology, as well as radiological technology and radiological life and health science in the area of Radiological Health Supporting Sciences.
The Graduate School has also set up a number of special courses: Medical Physicists Course in 2008, Radiation Safety and Applied Radiology Course (Master’s Course) in 2009, and Radiation Safety and Applied Radiology Course (Doctor’s Course) in 2010. These courses have been completed by many students, including some who enroll while continuing to work full-time.
