  1. 1. High-resolution biomedical phase-contrast tomography

    Author : William Twengström; Hans Hertz; Anna Burvall; Marco Stampanoni; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; x-ray; x-ray imaging; biomedical; phase contrast; tomography; zebrafish; coronary artery; virtual histology; ring artifacts; phase retrieval; mummy; Fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : Improved three-dimensional biomedical imaging can give a better understanding of tissue structure, growth and diseases. Most present imaging techniques that provide cellular spatial resolution are based on visible or infrared light. These methods cannot image deeper than a millimeter into tissue. READ MORE

  3. 3. Computed Tomography of the Coronary Arteries : Developmental and Prognostic Investigations

    Author : Mårten Sandstedt; Anders Persson; Joakim Alfredsson; Magnus Janzon; Jan Engvall; Mats Lidén; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Computed tomography (CT) is an increasingly used modality for investigations of patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). Technical advances could improve diagnostic accuracy and lead to clinical workflow improvements. Also, more prognostic information can optimize clinical follow-up strategies and treatments.

  4. 4. Computer-­Assisted  Coronary  CT  Angiography  Analysis : From  Software  Development  to  Clinical  Application

    Author : Chunliang Wang; Örjan Smedby; Anders Persson; Hans Frimmel; Evert-jan Vonken; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Vessel segmentation; coronary CTA; fuzzy connectedness; level set; coronary artery disease; Image analysis; Bildanalys; Radiological research; Radiologisk forskning;

    Abstract : Advances in coronary Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) have resulted in a boost in the use of this new technique in recent years, creating a challenge for radiologists due to the increasing number of exams and the large amount of data for each patient. The main goal of this study was to develop a computer tool to facilitate coronary CTA analysis by combining knowledge of medicine and image processing, and to evaluate the performance in clinical settings.

  5. 5. Computed tomography of the coronary arteries

    Author : Jonaz Ripsweden; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Non-invasive coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) has become an important tool for visualisation of coronary arteries since the introduction of 64-channel detector CCTA in 2004. It has been proved to be especially beneficial for ruling out coronary artery disease (CAD) in selected patient populations, due to the high negative predictive value (NPV). READ MORE
