    Sammanfattning : Radiotherapy dose calculations have evolved from simple factor based methods performed with pen and paper, into computationally intensive simulations based on Monte Carlo theory and energy deposition kernel convolution.Similarly, in the field of positron emission tomography (PET), attenuation correction, which was originally omitted entirely, is now a crucial component of any PET reconstruction algorithm.

  2. 2. Measurement of T1 relaxation time in lungs - Preclinical and clinical MRI applications to COPD

    Författare :Daniel Alamidi; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Magnetic Resonance Imaging; biomarker; tobacco smoke; mouse; smoking; lung imaging; Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease; ultrashort echo time UTE ; T1 mapping; longitudinal relaxation time;

    Sammanfattning : Monitoring of regional lung function in clinical trials of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) requires alternative endpoints beyond global pulmonary function tests (PFTs), which is the most common approach for diagnosing lung function abnormalities in humans. A promising magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) biomarker of lung disease in humans and animals is the T1 relaxation parameter. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Magnetic resonance imaging in the evaluation of chronic Achilles tendinosis

    Författare :Anna Gärdin; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Sammanfattning : The aim of the thesis was to evaluate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as an outcome in the evaluation of treatment in mid-portion Achilles tendinosis. Conventional MRI sequences, dynamic contrast enhanced MRI and measurement of transversal relaxation time, using an ultrashort time to echo sequence, has been evaluated. LÄS MER
