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

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Karin Andersson; Örebro universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; computed tomography; metal artifacts; image quality; visual grading analysis; radiotherapy; proton therapy; hip prosthesis; dental implants;

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE

  2. 2. Computed tomography in endodontic decision making

    University dissertation from Malmö university

    Author : Fernando José Mota de Almeida; Malmö University.; [2019]
    Keywords : ODONTOLOGY; ODONTOLOGI; Medicine; endodontics; decision making; computed tomography; CBCT; cone beam; interviews; qualitative content analysis; diagnostic thinking efficacy; therapeutic efficacy;

    Abstract : Computed tomography has been used in dentistry as a complement to two-dimensional (2D) imaging since the 1980s. The advent of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), a more modern computed tomog-raphy technique, meant a revolution in dento-maxillofacial imaging due to sharper images, with less radiation and at a lower cost than with mul-ti-slice computed tomography (MSCT), i.

  3. 3. Computed tomography of sawlogs knot detection and sawing optimization

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Erik Johansson; Luleå tekniska universitet.; RISE.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Träteknik; Wood Technology;

    Abstract : Branches on trees introduce defects on sawn timber called knots. By scanning sawlogs using computed tomography, knots can be detected and accounted for so that the sawing process can be optimized with respect to outgoing product value. READ MORE

  5. 5. Low-dose computed tomography of the abdomen and lumbar spine

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    Author : Muhammed Alshamari; Örebro universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Tomography; X-Ray Computed; Radiography; Radiation Dosage; Abdomen; Spine; Lumbosacral Region; Regression Analysis; Kirurgi; Surgery;

    Abstract : Radiography is a common radiologic investigation despite abundant evidence of its limited diagnostic value. On the other hand, computed tomography (CT) has a high diagnostic value and is widely considered to be among the most important advances in medicine. READ MORE
