Sammanfattning : The pathological process behind abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) formation is poorly understood and difficult to study. The aim of the thesis was to study the pathophysiology of AAA formation with positron emission tomography (PET) technology, a molecular imaging technique, allowing in vivo studies of pathophysiological changes.

2. Imaging Islets of Langerhans by Positron Emission Tomography : Quantification of Beta-Cell Mass in the Native Pancreas and the Islet Graft
Sammanfattning : Type 1 and 2 Diabetes Mellitus are a growing health problem throughout the world. There is an increasing need for methodologies, which are both reliable and non-invasive to measure the amount of insulin-producing tissue (Beta-cell mass, or BCM), as well as rapidly quantify changes in the BCM due to the onset of disease, beta-cell replacement therapy, or other treatments.

Sammanfattning : Background: PET/CT, positron emission tomography combined with computed tomography, with 18F-FDG (2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose) is well established in oncological imaging. Pulmonary carcinoid tumours may have metabolic activity, making them available for PET/CT imaging with 18F-FDG. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background: Aortic prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE) is a disease with high mortality, and diagnosis is difficult. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) has been the mainstay imaging modality in the diagnostic workup, but TEE has diagnostic shortcomings. Thus, new imaging methods might improve the diagnostic workup of PVE. LÄS MER
5. Utility of hybrid SPECT/CT in Sentinel Lymph Node mapping, and 18F FDG-PET/CT for treatment response evaluation in cancer patients
Sammanfattning : The Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy (SLNB) method is currently well established in the staging of clinically node-negative breast cancer. However, there is some debate concerning the reliability of this method following previous breast surgery. LÄS MER
