  1. 1. Vessel wall integrity : influence of genetics and flow

    Författare :Hanna Björck; Toste Länne; Per Eriksson; Sverker Jern; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of death worldwide. Underlying causes, such as atherosclerosis and hypertension, are associated with remodeling of the vessel wall ultimately leading to loss of structural integrity. There are a number of factors that can influence vascular remodeling and hence structural integrity. LÄS MER

  2. 2. 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 :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; 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

  3. 3. Quantitative Evaluation of Contrast Agent Dynamics in Liver MRI

    Författare :Nils Dahlström; Örjan Smedby; Torkel Brismar; Anders Ynnerman; Carsten Thomsen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Liver; spleen; hepatobiliary system; liver function; MRI; DCE-MRI; Gd-EOBDTPA; Gd-BOPTA; pharmacokinetic; hepatocyte; relaxivity.; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : The studies presented here evaluate the biliary, parenchymal and vascular enhancement effects of two T1-shortening liver-specific contrast agents, Gd-BOPTA and Gd-EOB-DTPA, in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of healthy subjects and of patients.Ten healthy volunteers were examined with both contrast agents in a 1.

  4. 4. Extending MRI to the Quantification of Turbulence Intensity

    Författare :Petter Dyverfeldt; Tino Ebbers; Krishna Nayak; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Turbulence intensity; cardiovascular disease; blood flow; hemodynamics; magnetic resonance imaging; generalized phase-contrast MRI; turbulent flow; Medical technology; Medicinsk teknik; Fluid mechanics; Strömningsmekanik;

    Sammanfattning : In cardiovascular medicine, the assessment of blood flow is fundamental to the understanding and detection of disease. Many pharmaceutical, interventional, and surgical treatments impact the flow. The primary purpose of the cardiovascular system is to drive, control and maintain blood flow to all parts of the body.
