Computer graphics (CG) is not only applied in cinema, animation or TV game but also in the field of medicine and biology. The CG of the human body may be a symbol of the interdisciplinary investigation of medicine and engineering because the engineers applied their seeds such as biomedical signal acquisition and image processing to the medical doctors’ needs of precise diagnosis for better treatment.

We are investigating 3D imaging of cardiovascular system with motion and blood flow and constructing 3D imaging by data from computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound. We are also analyzing blood flow in heart and vessels to assess flow dynamics by combining conventional ultrasound Doppler technique and computer simulation.

We have been developing acoustic microscopy for medicine and biology and realized nano-level imaging of a living cell by very high frequency ultrasound. Acoustic microscopy has provided information on pathophysiology of various diseases from the point of biomechanics besides high precision imaging.
