Awards & Top Articles

Doi Awards (for outstanding articles)

The Japanese Society of Radiological Technology (JSRT) and the Japan Society of Medical Physics (JSMP) established the Doi Award in 2008, to be given to outstanding articles in each of the three primary fields: diagnostic imaging, nuclear medicine/magnetic resonance imaging, and radiation metrology/radiation therapy physic, annually. The Doi Award has been named in view of Professor Kunio Doi’s notable contributions to medical imaging and computer-aided diagnosis while he was Professor of Radiology at the University of Chicago for 40 years, and also as the first Editor-in-Chief of this journal.

Most Citation Awards

The Japanese Society of Radiological Technology (JSRT) and the Japan Society of Medical Physics (JSMP) together provide annually the Most Citation Awards to up to three articles based on the number of citations in the following three years including the year they were published, in order to encourage publication of articles which would be referenced by many authors publishing in journals with Impact Factor (IF).
