About Me
Dr. Kinoshita is an active surgical neuro-oncologist in Osaka, Japan. His main clinical and research activities are performed at Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine.
He is performing many malignant brain tumor surgeries, including awake surgeries for gliomas, on a daily basis. He believes non-invasive imaging techniques are valuable information for enhancing surgical precision and providing tailor-made treatment for glioma patients. His research interest includes but is not restricted to advanced MR imaging of the brain, such as diffusion, perfusion, quantitative MR acquisition, PET imaging, and molecular imaging using radiomics. He has also been participating in MR-guided focused ultrasound surgery and demonstrated for the first time that macromolecules such as antibodies could be delivered beyond the blood-brain barrier in a site-specific fashion by MR-guided microbubble-enhanced focused ultrasound.
