MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technologies can extract detailed anatomical and functional information from living organisms, including human bodies. Today, data acquisition and analysis techniques for MRI are advancing rapidly. Several new resources are expected to make fundamental contributions to neuroscience and human biology, including NIPS’ Dual-MRI and super-high magnetic field magnetic resonance apparatus, which create super-high resolution functional and anatomical images, Juntendo University’s technology for analysis of diffusion images, and The University of Tokyo’s analysis technology for resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging. The resultant research and development, based on human actual diseases, should lead to control of human diseases. In this category, we provide support for research on brain imaging and similar tasks by providing standardized MRI techniques for visualization and quantitative analysis of the structures and functions of living bodies. We also assist in optimizing these techniques for individual research projects.
