    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Gaël Neuez; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN; MEDICINE; Elektroteknik; elektronik och fotonik; Electrical engineering; electronics and photonics; body scanner; range camera; structured light; anatomical landmarks; EASYTEX; 3D visualization; 2D image projections; octree data structure;

    Abstract : The use of camera range imaging for the purpose of 3-dimensional representation and non-contact measures is widely used in industry, medicine, computer-aided design and other areas. Different range imaging methods can be applied, such as stereo, laser sheet of light, and structured light. READ MORE

  3. 3. Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Determination of Human Body Composition. Methodological and Applied Studies

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : John Brandberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; X-ray Computed Tomography; Magnetic Resonance Imaging; Body Composition; Obesity; Metabolic Syndrome X; Glucose Metabolism; Growth Hormone; Fatty Liver; Intra-Abdominal Fat;

    Abstract : Background: Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provide important research opportunities due to their unique capability of characterizing and quantifying tissues and organs. Ionizing radiation is a limitation using CT, and recent developments aiming to improve MRI for determination of body composition have not been validated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Calculation of scatter in cone beam CT Steps towards a virtual tomograph

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicin och hälsa

    Author : Alexandr Malusek; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Radiological research Radiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Radiologisk forskning Radiologi;

    Abstract : Scattered photons—shortly scatter—are generated by interaction processes when photon beams interact with matter. In diagnostic radiology, they deteriorate image quality since they add an undesirable signal that lowers the contrast in projection radiography and causes cupping and streak artefacts in computed tomography (CT).

  5. 5. Methodological improvements in quantitative MRI : Perfusion estimation and partial volume considerations

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Medical Radiation Physics

    Author : André Ahlgren; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017-01]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Magnetkameran är en fantastisk medicinsk bildutrustning som kan producera detaljerade bilder av insidan av kroppen. Förutom bilder av vävnaden och dess struktur så kan magnetkameran också användas till att mäta olika egenskaper hos vävnaden. READ MORE
