Information on using the Arakawa Campus MRI

panoramic view

A Philips MRI scanner (Achieva 3.0T) was installed in the Arakawa Campus of Tokyo Metropolitan University in January 2010.
Using the MRI allows us to obtain tomographic images of information inside the human body by means of magnetic force, without relying on radiology.
The scanner is available for users both inside and outside the university.

MRI in brief

  • MRI is short for Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

  • Tomographic images are obtained by means of the relationship between a magnetic field generated by magnets and hydrogen atoms existing inside the body. This eliminates the need for radiology and involves no exposure to radiation.
