  1. 1. Quantitative imaging with PET performance and applications of 76Br, 52Fe, 110mIn and 134La

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mark Lubberink; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; PET; Positron Emission Tomography; Quantitative Imaging; bromine; iron; indium; lanthanum; Onkologi; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi; Oncology; onkologi;

    Abstract : The use of positron emission tomography (PET) has so far mainly been limited to a few nuclides with short half-lives such as 11C and 18F. Certain applications require nuclides with longer half-lives, such as 76Br and 52Fe. READ MORE

    Abstract : Schizophrenia is a group of disorders with a worldwide lifetime prevalence of 0.85%. Thefunctional outcome of the disorder seem stable from the first systematic outcome studies to thepresent day, and vary only with changes in diagnostic criteria. READ MORE

  3. 3. Affibody Molecules for PET Imaging

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Joanna Strand; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Affibody molecules; Molecular imaging; PET; Radiolabelling; HER2; PDGFRβ; Biomedical Radiation Science; Biomedicinsk strålningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Optimization of Affibody molecules would allow for high contrast imaging of cancer associated surface receptors using molecular imaging. The primary aim of the thesis was to develop Affibody-based PET imaging agents to provide the highest possible sensitivity of RTK detection in vivo. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quantitative methods for tumor imaging with dynamic PET

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Ida Häggström; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dynamic positron emission tomography; PET; tumor imaging; compartment modeling; Monte Carlo; radiofysik; radiofysik;

    Abstract : There is always a need and drive to improve modern cancer care. Dynamic positron emission tomography (PET) offers the advantage of in vivo functional imaging, combined with the ability to follow the physiological processes over time. READ MORE

  5. 5. [68Ga]Exendin-4: Bench-to-Bedside PET molecular imaging of the GLP-1 receptor for diabetes and cancer

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ram kumar Selvaraju; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; PET; [68Ga]Exendin-4; beta cell imaging; insulinoma; dosimetry;

    Abstract : Diabetes epidemic is underway. Beta cell dysfunction (BCF) and loss of beta cell mass (BCM) are known to be key events in its progression. Currently, there are no reliable techniques to estimate or follow the loss of BCM, in vivo. READ MORE
