    Sammanfattning : The level of automation in our society is ever increasing. Technologies like self-driving cars, virtual reality, and fully autonomous robots, which all were unimaginable a few decades ago, are realizable today, and will become standard consumer products in the future. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Electromagnetic Modeling and Design of Medical Implants and Devices

    Författare :Oskar Talcoth; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :Magnetic Resonance Imaging; Implant Safety; Lead Heating; Pacemakers; Thin-wire Approximation; Convex Relaxation; Optimal Sensor Placement; Optimal Measurements; Helix; Sensor Selection; MR Safety; Magnetic Tracking; Fisher Information Matrix;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis covers two topics in biomedical electromagnetics: pacemaker lead heating in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and optimization of sensorpositions in magnetic tracking.The electromagnetic part of pacemaker lead heating during MRI is a resonant phenomenon which is complicated by, among other factors, the wide range of length scales involved in the problem.

    Nyckelord :helical conductors; optimal measurements; thin-wire approximation; inverse problems; Convex optimization; pacemakers; design of experiments; MR safety; multi-scale; magnetic resonance imaging; magnetic tracking; optimal sensor placement;

    Sammanfattning : Electromagnetics is a fundamental part of biomedical engineering and modern healthcare due to the electromagnetic nature of several important processes in the human body and the interactions of electromagnetic fields with the human body. As a consequence, electromagnetics is exploited for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes by a multitude of medical devices. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Nuclear magnetic resonance and microcirculation: The influence of pulsatile brain-tissue motion on measurements of intravoxel incoherent motion and assessment of haemodynamics using exo- and endogenous tracers

    Författare :Ronnie Wirestam; Lund Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diagnostic radiology; cortical activation; diffusion; tumor; tumour; ischemic stroke; ischaemic stroke; tracer kinetics; bolus tracking; phase mapping; brain motion; intracranial dynamics; blood flow; haemodynamics; vascularity; MRS; perfusion; MRI; magnetic resonance; Clinical physics; radiology; tomography; medical instrumentation; Klinisk fysiologi; radiologi; tomografi; medicinsk instrumentering;

    Sammanfattning : In this project, the potential of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and spectroscopy in studies of microcirculation and haemodynamics was evaluated. The spatial and temporal characteristics of human pulsatile brain-tissue movements in healthy individuals, relevant for the understanding of the cerebrospinal-fluid (CSF) circulation and the pathogenesis of hydrocephalus, were thoroughly investigated.

  5. 5. Tracking and predicting cognitive development using magnetic resonance imaging

    Författare :Henrik Ullman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Neuroimaging of the developing brain has helped describing and quantifying many of the biological processes underlying cognitive development. The protracted development of higher order cognitive functions has allowed detailed description of their neural correlates. LÄS MER
