The Department of Medical Imaging and Radiological Science of Central Taiwan University of Science and Technology


1996 The department was founded in 1966, provided 5-year program for the students. We opened a weekend 2-year program for on-job-learning radiographers in 1996.

1999 The first four-year based department of radiological technology in the vocational educational system was established in 1999 in Taiwan. It offers Bachelor degree for graduated students from high school.

In 2003 and 2008, the department offered a Master degree and Ph. D. degree in medical imagine and radiological sciences. And it is the only Ph. D. degree in the technical-vocational education system.

Under the support and support of the Ministry of Education's technical re-engineering program, the Taiwan University of Science and Technology established the first "Animal Radiation Therapy Research Center" for cancer-fighting children. This (2016-04-29) day is synchronized with the "Clinical Skills Center" ceremony.

  5. Citing the PBL (Problem based Learning) teaching philosophy to stimulate students' independent learning training to cultivate independent thinking and problem solving skills.
  6. Regularly hold special lectures, invite industry and government experts to give lectures, establish a network of industry-university cooperation, and master the manpower needs of enterprises.

Animal Radiation Therapy Research Center


The principle of radiotherapy is to use high-energy radiation to illuminate the tumor site, which can directly damage the DNA of the tumor cells, and also generate free radicals in the tumor cells to kill the tumor. If the tissue cell differentiation speed is faster, it is also affected by the radiation, and the side effects have early effects and late effects.

In order to minimize the side effects of radiation, it is necessary to use a computer treatment plan, design the radiation of the total dose, and consider the dose of normal tissue around the tumor to adjust the angle of the incident light. After constant adjustment of the parameters, the radiation is reached. The result is the largest tumor coverage, with minimal impact on the surrounding organs.

The currently widely used therapeutic instrument is a linear accelerator, which can perform Three-Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy (3D-CRT) and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT).
