As a manifest leader of radiological medicine, Korea Institute of Radiological & Medical Sciences was the first in Korea to acquire a radiation cancer treatment equipment, cobalt unit, and continued its achievement with the use of CyberKnife. Using Cyclotron, a circular accelerator, the foundation for R&D businesses such as early cancer diagnosis using radioactive isotope, and cancer treatment, were firmly established.

Also, Korea Institute of Radiological & Medical Sciences has been developing the medical heavy-ion accelerator to dramatically improve cure rate of cancer patients based on its advanced accelerator development technology.

Korea Institute of Radiological & Medical Sciences is also establishes a safety and efficacy evaluation of drug candidates, and therapeutic radiopharmaceutical development.

As Korea has created medical and scientific technology with basically no background, Korea Institute of Radiological & Medical Sciences has also progressed as new milestones have been developed in radiological medicine field for 50 years. We have grown to be a great leader who transfers technologies in radiological medicine to developing countries based on our 50 year's efforts and experiences.

Korea Institute of Radiological & Medical Sciences will strengthen research capacity, continuously develop, discover and foster the growth factors, and achieve innovation.
