Sammanfattning : The purpose of this study was to study and try to optimise high intensity focused ultrasound treatment of the intervertebral disc. We demonstrated that it was possible to heat intervertebral discs with HIFU delivered by 50 or 5 mm diameter ultrasound transducers. LÄS MER
2. Boron neutron capture therapy : Synthesis of boronated amines- and DNA intercalating agents for potential use in cancer therapy
Sammanfattning : Boron Neutron Capture Therapy is a binary cancer treatment modality, involving the delivery of a suitable boron compound to tumour cells followed by irradiation of the tumour by thermal neutrons. Boronated agents can selectively be delivered to tumour cells either directly with tumour-specific boron compounds, or by use of targeting strategies. LÄS MER
3. On modelling and simulation of perfused tissue during thermal treatment : thermal analysis of blood perfusion and lesioning during ablative neurosurgery
Sammanfattning : Thermal treatment means therapy for which heat is the therapeutic agent. During treatment, the tissue temperature is increased to an injurious temperature (higher than 43 °C for the most widely used treatments). The aim is to reach necrotic temperature in the treatment area and non-lethal temperature outside the same. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Two non-thermal regimens of light interaction with biological tissue, that are in a natural way connected, are discussed in the present thesis. These are photodynamic therapy (PDT) for the treatment of malignant tumours and laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) for tissue characterization. LÄS MER
5. Methods, Instrumentation and Mechanisms for Optical Characterization of Tissue and Treatment of Malignant Tumours
Sammanfattning : In this thesis, different optical methods utilising visible light for characterization of tissue have been developed and evaluated. The feasibility of many of these methods has been demonstrated in the laboratory or in animal experiments. LÄS MER
