Department of Radiological Technology
A radiological technologist contributes to the development of community medicine and social welfare by acquiring the latest image diagnostic skills which are required in the modern medical field.
A radiological technologist, who deals with advanced image diagnosis apparatus is an indispensable member of the medical staff. Currently more and more people are suffering from cancers or circulatory disorders as our society is aging. Clinical utilization of medical radiology is expanding.
Along with the spread of medical equipment, the field of image diagnosis has developed remarkably which increases the importance of a professional who specializes only in medical radiology. To cope with this circumstance, we have organized a curriculum combining basic, applicable and practical subjects organically. Students learn basic medicine, science and engineering, radiological science, various techniques of taking images or image anatomy, treatment with radiological techniques etc. and we nurture technologists with the latest skills and knowledge. The graduates are actively and broadly involved in medical facilities and radiology-relevant companies. It is also possible to study at graduate school and become a researcher. We have more and more elderly people in Japan which is bringing us to an aging society. Moreover, preventive medicine has come to people’s attention as a way to keep healthy. From this perspective assured circumstances of receiving higher quality medicine are desired and medical staff with professional knowledge and skill is required.
