  1. 1. Machine Learning Methods for Image Analysis in Medical Applications, from Alzheimer's Disease, Brain Tumors, to Assisted Living

    Författare :Chenjie Ge; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; convolutional neural networks; Alzheimer s disease detection; machine learning; deep learning; fall detection; glioma subtype classification; generative adversarial networks; recurrent convolutional networks; spiking neural networks; visual prosthesis; semi-supervised learning;

    Sammanfattning : Healthcare has progressed greatly nowadays owing to technological advances, where machine learning plays an important role in processing and analyzing a large amount of medical data. This thesis investigates four healthcare-related issues (Alzheimer's disease detection, glioma classification, human fall detection, and obstacle avoidance in prosthetic vision), where the underlying methodologies are associated with machine learning and computer vision.

  2. 2. Metal artifacts in computed tomography : impact of reduction methods on image quality and radiotherapy treatment planning

    Författare :Karin Andersson; Per Thunberg; Eva Norrman; Jan Persliden; Anders Tingberg; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; computed tomography; metal artifacts; image quality; visual grading analysis; radiotherapy; proton therapy; hip prosthesis; dental implants;

    Sammanfattning : Degradation of image quality by metal artifacts is a common problem in computed tomography (CT) imaging, which can limit the diagnostic value of a CT examination and also introduce inaccuracies in radiotherapy (RT) treatment planning. In recent years, commercial metal artifact reduction (MAR) methods have been launched by several CT vendors. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Leukocyte scintigraphy, SPECT/CT and PET/CT in prosthetic joint infection

    Författare :Johan Teiler; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Background: A known complication of arthroplasty is prosthetic joint infection (PJI). It can be challenging to diagnose and treat PJI due to the formation of a biofilm protecting the bacteria in chronic infections from the innate immune system and antibiotics. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Effects of gold- and silver nanoparticles on the retina

    Författare :Patrik Maximilian Bauer; Funktionell zoologi; []
    Nyckelord :Microglia; Retina; In vitro; Nanoparticles;

    Sammanfattning : Over the past decade, a massive increase in the use of nanomaterials and nanoparticles (NPs) in both commercial and medical applications has occurred. Medical applications include advanced drug delivery vehicles, imaging and hyper thermic therapies. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Touching on elements for a non-invasive sensory feedback system for use in a prosthetic hand

    Författare :Pamela Svensson; Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; sensory feedback; amputation; referred sensation; non-invasive feedback; upper limb prosthetics; body ownership;

    Sammanfattning : Hand amputation results in the loss of motor and sensory functions, impacting activities of daily life and quality of life. Commercially available prosthetic hands restore the motor function but lack sensory feedback, which is crucial to receive information about the prosthesis state in real-time when interacting with the external environment.
