  1. 1. Fat-IBC A New Paradigm for Intra-body Communication

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Noor Badariah Asan; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fat-Intrabody Communication; Fat Tissue; Microwave; Propagation; Data Packet Reception; Ex-vivo; Phantom; Communication; Reliability; Implants; Engineering Science with specialization in Microwave Technology; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot mikrovågsteknik;

    Abstract : In the last two decades, a significant development in the field of medical technology occurred worldwide. This development is characterized by the materialization of various body implants and worn devices, that is devices attached to the body. READ MORE

  2. 2. Human body composition. Reference data and anthropometric equations. The metabolic syndrome and risk

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ingrid Larsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adults; anthropometry; atherosclerotic morbidity; body composition; body fat; cardiovascular disease; DEXA; dual energy x-ray absorptiometry; fat-free mass; FFM; humans; metabolic syndrome; morbidity; mortality; prediction equations; randomly selected sample; reference data; sagittal trunk diameter; TBK; total body potassium; waist circumference;

    Abstract : The determination of body composition is a key to the understanding of the relation between obesity and disease. In order to evaluate body composition data, reference values are needed. Since methods with high validity and reproducibility are expensive and often time consuming, simpler techniques based on anthropometry are needed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Dietary Fatty Acids, Body Composition and Ectopic Fat Results from Overfeeding Studies in Humans

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fredrik Rosqvist; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Linoleic acid; Palmitic acid; SFA; PUFA; Fatty acids; Body composition; Liver fat; Ectopic fat; Adipose tissue; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to investigate the effects of dietary fatty acids on body composition and ectopic fat in humans, with emphasis on the role of the omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) linoleic acid (18:2n-6) and the saturated fatty acid (SFA) palmitic acid (16:0). The overall hypothesis was that linoleic acid would be beneficial compared with palmitic acid during overfeeding, as previously indicated in animals. READ MORE

  4. 4. Separation of Water and Fat Signal in Magnetic Resonance Imaging Advances in Methods Based on Chemical Shift

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis
