  1. 1. Quantitative diffuse reflectance spectroscopy : myocardial oxygen transport from vessel to mitochondria

    Author : Tobias Lindbergh; Tomas Strömberg; Henrik Ahn; Marcus Larsson; Lise Lyngsnes Randeberg; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : In the field of biomedical optics, diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) is a frequently used technique for obtaining information about the optical properties of the medium under investigation. The method utilizes spectral difference between incident and backscattered light intensity for quantifying the underlying absorption and scattering processes that affects the light-medium interaction.

  2. 2. Optical Analysis of biological media - continuous wave diffuse spectroscopy

    Author : Jan Sørensen Dam; Atomfysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; spatially resolved diffuse reflectance; in vitro diffuse spectroscopy; continuous wave techniques; Nuclear physics; multivariate data analysis.; Kärnfysik; Fysik; Physics; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Monte Carlo simulations; light propagation models; multiple scattering; Tissue optics; tissue optical properties; Fysicumarkivet A:2000:Sörensen Dam;

    Abstract : The main topic of this thesis is real-time quantification of relevant chromophores and light scattering elements in biological media. The presented methods and instrumentation are based on continuous wave (steady-state) optical measurements of (a) spatially-resolved diffuse reflectance from bulk media and (b) combined spatially-resolved and goniometric measurements of re-emitted light from thin samples.

  3. 3. In Vivo Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy of Human Tissue : From Point Measurements to Imaging

    Author : Erik Häggblad; Göran Salerud; Tomas Strömberg; Maurice C. G. Maurice C. G. Aalders; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : This thesis presents the non-invasive use of diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) to provide information about the biochemical composition of living tissue. During DRS measurements, the incident, visible light is partially absorbed by chromophores but also scattered in the tissue before being remitted. READ MORE

  4. 4. Liver tissue characterization and influence of chemotherapy in liver surgery

    Author : Jan Nilsson; Lund Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; colorectal liver metastases; liver regeneration; incisional hernia; steatosis; hepatic microcirculation; diffuse reflectance spectroscopy; DRS; sidestream dark-field imaging; SDF; laser speckle contrast imaging; LSCI;

    Abstract : Background & Aims: Primary liver cancer is the second most common cause of death from cancer worldwide. In the western world, the majority of liver malignancies consist of colorectal metastases. Liver resection is the primary treatment for cure in liver tumor disease. READ MORE

  5. 5. On optical methods for intracerebral measurements during stereotactic and functional neurosurgery : Experimental studies

    Author : Johan Antonsson; Karin Wårdell; Lars-Erik Augustinsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Laser Doppler perfusion monitoring; Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy; Functional and stereotactic neurosurgery; Medical engineering; Medicinsk teknik;

    Abstract : Radio frequency (RF) lesioning and deep brain stimulation (DBS) are the two prevailing surgical treatments for movement disorders within the field of stereotactic and functional neurosurgery. For RF-lesioning, a small volume of brain tissue is coagulated and knowledge of the lesion size and growth is of great importance for the safety and outcome of the procedure. READ MORE
