1. Research themes
We examine the diagnostic imaging of hepato-pancreato-biliary diseases, including ultrasonography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, endoscopy, and angiography. We also examine molecular approaches to pancreaticobiliary cancer.

Our current research interests are as follows:
(1) Correlation between imaging and pathological findings of hetatocelluar carcinoma at an early stage.
(2) Blood flow analysis and differential diagnosis of various liver tumors using color Doppler imaging
(3) New method of radio frequency abulation and transarterial embolization of hepatocelluar carcinoma.
(4) Management of metastatic liver tumor by arterial infusion chemotherapy
(5) Clinicopathological findings of biliary tract carcinoma at an early stage
(6) Diagnosis of biliary tract carcinoma using endoscopic ultrasonography
(7) Visualization of fine structure of bilary tract using intraductal ultrasonography
(8) Percutaneous and endoscopic biliary dranage
(9) Clinicopathological finidngs of pancreatic carcinoma at an early stage
(10) Management of chronic pancreatitis
(11) Mechanism of severe acute pancreatitis
(12) Findings of pancreatoscopy and intraductal ultrasonography on various pancreatic diseases
(13) Functional imaging of magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography
(14) Clinicopathological findings of pre-cancerous lesion of the liver, biliary tract and pancreas
(15) Analysis of prognositic factor of hepato-pancreato-biliary cancer
(16) Genomic analysis of pancreato-biliary cancer
(17) Management of advanced pancreato-biliary cancer
