Sammanfattning : Medical imaging continues to permeate the practice of medicine, but automated yet accurate segmentation and labeling of anatomical structures continues to be a major obstacle to computerized medical image analysis (MIA). Deformable models, with its profound roots in estimation theory, optimization, and physics-based dynamical systems, represent a powerful approach to the general problem of medical image segmentation.

Sammanfattning : The communication between the immune system and the central nervous system (CNS) results in an array of centrally regulated illness responses, including fever and increased hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis activity. The mechanisms by which the immune system signals the brain across the blood-brain barrier have not been completely elucidated, but proinflammatory cytokines, like interleukin-1 (IL-1), are believed to act as important mediators.

Sammanfattning : The mastoid, located in the temporal bone, houses an air cell system whose cells have a variation in size that can go far below current conventional clinical CT scanner resolution. Therefore, the mastoid air cell system is only partially represented in a CT scan. LÄS MER
4. Elbow kinematics : Studies of the elbow joint under normal conditions and after joint replacement
Sammanfattning : Background: Total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) is used for treatment of patients with severe pain and disability due to reumatoid arthritis. Long term results are not as good as for hip and knee replacements. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Atherosclerosis and restenosis are driven by chronic immune response in the vascular wall. This involves cell migration into and within the vessel wall, cell proliferation as well as accumulation of lipids in the vessel wall. These processes are mediated, among other substances, by molecules belonging to a large family of chemoattractants. LÄS MER
