  4. 4. Ultrasonic Methods for Quantitative Carotid Plaque Characterization

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Erik Widman; KTH.; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicinsk teknologi; Medical Technology; Atherosclerosis; Cardiovascular Disease; Carotid Artery; Elasticity; ex vivo; in vivo; Phantom; Plaque; Polyvinyl Alcohol; Pulse Wave Imaging; Shear Wave Elastography; Speckle Tracking; Stroke; Ultrasound;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular diseases are the leading causes of death worldwide and improved diagnostic methods are needed for early intervention and to select the most suitable treatment for patients. Currently, carotid artery plaque vulnerability is typically determined by visually assessing ultrasound B-mode images, which is influenced by user-subjectivity. READ MORE

  5. 5. Protein and Cell Interactions with Nanostructured Surfaces

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Emma Westas; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; bacteria; titanium dioxide; implant associated infections; metabolomics; cellular interactions; hydroxyapatite; immune complement activation; silica; nanoparticles; photocatalysis; protein adsorption; Nanostructured implants;

    Abstract : A great challenge of today’s implant development is to construct a surface that promotes tissue integration and avoids bacterial colonization. To avoid implant related infections, many argue that a surface promoting strong cell adhesion and tissue integration in favour for bacterial adhesion would solve the problem, the so-called race for the surface concept.
