1. Error reduction strategies for quantitative PET with focus on hybrid PET/MRI
Sammanfattning : Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is an important tool for detection, staging and follow-up in a wide range of diseases, including cancer and neurological disorders. As a functional imaging tool, PET can visualize biological processes, where positron emitting radioactive isotopes are connected to molecules with different functions in the body. LÄS MER
2. Image Quality Optimisation and Dose Management in CT, SPECT/CT, and PET/CT
Sammanfattning : The significant increase in the use of CT, alone or combined with SPECT or PET, has raised concerns about patient radiation exposure and the consequent increased risk of malignancy later in life. The overall objective of this work was to evaluate and optimise different approaches for minimising patient radiation absorbed dose and maintaining or improving image quality in CT, SPECT/CT, and PET/CT.

3. PET/CT in oncology : Patient experience, image quality and the value of information
Sammanfattning : The overall aim was to investigate patients’ experiences with a PET/CT examination, satisfaction with care provided in connection to the examination and whether web-based information can improve satisfaction with care and image quality, compared to standard care. An additional aim was to explore how satisfaction with care and image quality is associated with health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and perceived stress. LÄS MER
4. PET and MR imaging in prostate cancer
Sammanfattning : The current risk assessment of prostate cancer (PC) relies on histopathological samples from biopsies and clinical variables such as prostate-specific antigen (PSA). However, this comes with uncertainties and in some cases it can be challenging to separate patients who would benefit from radical treatment and those who would not. LÄS MER
5. Aspects of PET-CT in prostate cancer. Protocol optimization, diagnostic accuracy, and dosimetry
Sammanfattning : The PET-CT imaging modality is based on positron emission tomography combined with computed tomography. Before a PET-CT examination, a radioactive tracer (also called a radiopharmaceutical) is intravenously injected into the patient. PET technology images the distribution of this tracer element by detecting the decay. LÄS MER
