Introduction
    The Department of Medical Imaging and Radiological Sciences includes three major disciplines including Radiological Diagnosis, Radiation Therapy and Nuclear Medicine. Each of these disciplines contain various research and clinical sub-fields in medical imaging modalities and therapy, and instruments in helping diagnose and treating human disease, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), PET, SPECT, X-ray imaging, computed tomography, ultrasound imaging, radiation dosimetry, radiation therapy, and PACS (picture archiving and communication system). 

    The Department of Medical Imaging and Radiological Sciences maintains a strong commitment to new medical imaging technologies, which allows us to provide innovative programs blending an interdisciplinary core curriculum, and ongoing clinical experience in radiological sciences.

    The Department of Medical Imaging and Radiological Sciences provides an environment in which expertise and resources are consolidated towards the goal of more effective and more efficient education in medical imaging and radiological sciences.

    The Department of Medical Imaging and Radiological Sciences offers one undergraduate program towards the Bachelor of Science degree, and offers one graduate program leading to the Master of Science degree since 2006. The department offers a PhD program starting from Fall 2011.

 

Medical Imaging

    The field of medical imaging has experienced phenomenal growth over the last century.  With the advent of more-powerful and less-expensive computers, new and expanded imaging systems have found their applications in the medical fields. Systems range from those devoted to planar imaging using x-rays to technologies that are just emerging, such as virtual reality, hardware design and software algorithm development for a wide array of imaging technologies applicable to medicine, including MRI, fMRI, PET, CT.
