Igarashi Iori is a radiographer who believes the “truth” will always be captured in CT and MRI images and his talent has been recognised by the most respected radiologist in the US. After his return to Japan, Iori gets a job at Amakasu General Hospital where Amakasu An, the childhood friend he has fancied all this while, works as a radiologist. 22 years ago, An told Iori about her dream to become a doctor and follow in her father’s footsteps. At that time, An said she will make him her helper after he becomes the world’s best “photographer” since a “photographer” is necessary to detect illnesses. On his first day of work, Iori heads to the hospital by bus. Hirose Hirono, a new radiographer who got a job with Iori, is also on the same bus. During the journey, Iori notices a slight change in the bus driver and tells a passenger to call for an ambulance. Iori instructs the ambulance crew that rushed over to take the man to a hospital which can perform an angiography. The bus driver is brought to Amakasu General Hospital and accepted by orthopedic surgeon Tsujimura Shuntaro who is in charge of emergencies. However, the bus driver is well enough to stand on his own … … Amakasu General Hospital’s Department of Radiology is headed by Kaburagi Yasutomi who is also the Medical Services Director. Gossip spreads among the radiographers that Iori might be the illegitimate child of hospital director Omori Nagisa. Iori arrives late because of the incident on the bus, but is finally reunited with An. Although she does not remember him at all and he gets quite a shock, their meeting eventually turns out to be a life-changing moment.
