Medical Quantum Radiation imaging to visualize molecular functions at individual level



Purpose of Research

CT (Computed Tomography), PET (Positron Emission Tomography) and SPECT (Single Photon Emission CT) are powerful medical quantum radiation imaging method providing precise morphological information and high-sensitive molecular functional information. Novel molecular/functional imaging technology at individual level are being developed for future accurate cancer diagnosis or prediction of diseases. New quantum sensors and combination with other modalities are also under development.

Subjects of Reseach

Biomedical functional molecular imaging in individuals
Nuclear Medicine
Medical Quantum Radiation imaging
Detection technology and sensors for quantum radiation
Research on integration of magnetic, RI and quantum technology


From quantum sensors to medical functional imaging
