  1. 1. Epidemiological and radiological aspects of multiple sclerosis

    Författare :Anne-Marie Landtblom; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : The first aim of this investigation was to analyse possible risk factors for multiple sclerosis (MS) with focus on animal contacts and occupational exposures, especially to organic solvents. Another aim was to search for specific features in solvent-exposed MS patients mainly by the radiological techniques magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ( 1 H MRS) and also by cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis along with a disability scoring.

  2. 2. Mapping the Huntington's disease process using cerebrospinal fluid analysis

    Författare :Valter Niemelä; Anne-Marie Landtblom; Dag Nyholm; Jimmy Sundblom; Edward Wild; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Neurodegeneration; Huntingtons disease; Neurogenetics; Neuroinflammation; Neurofilament light; tau; Proenkephalin; Neurology; Neurologi;

    Sammanfattning : Huntington's disease (HD) is an autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disorder, caused by a CAG-repeat expansion in the HTT-gene. Today there are no disease-modifying therapies (DMTs), but several promising clinical trials are underway, including therapies that reduce mutant huntingtin expression. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Clinical Applications of Synthetic MRI of the Brain

    Författare :Ida Blystad; Elna-Marie Larsson; Peter Lundberg; Marcel Warntjes; Örjan Smedby; Anne-Marie Landtblom; John Hald; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has a high soft-tissue contrast with a high sensitivity for detecting pathological changes in the brain. Conventional MRI is a time-consuming method with multiple scans that relies on the visual assessment of the neuroradiologist. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Epidemiological Studies of Multiple Sclerosis in Sweden with focus on the County of Värmland

    Författare :Inger Boström; Anne-Marie Landtblom; Trond Riise; Anders Svenningsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to study the frequency of MS in the suggested high-risk area of Värmland county by investigating the current prevalence and analyzing the development over time; secondly to investigate some aetiological factors – the pattern of industry, both in relation to MS in Värmland and in the whole country, and also to examine the possible relation between the distribution of MS and ALS, as it has previously shown a positive correlation in two studies; finally to analyze the women-to-men ratio of MS in Sweden because of international reports of an increasing ratio.Clinical data was collected from hospitals and other health care units in the county of Värmland, to calculate the prevalence ratio.

  5. 5. Quantitative Magnetic Resonance in Diffuse Neurological and Liver Disease

    Författare :Olof Dahlqvist Leinhard; Peter Lundberg; Anne-Marie Landtblom; Marcel Warntjes; Eva Lund; Göran Starck; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radiological physics; Radiofysik;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction: Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is one of the most important diagnostic tools in modern medicine. Compared to other imaging modalities, it provides superior soft tissue contrast of all parts of the body and it is considered to be safe for patients. LÄS MER
