  1. 1. Quantitative Magnetic Resonance in Diffuse Neurological and Liver Disease

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Olof Dahlqvist Leinhard; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Radiological research Radiological physics; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Radiologisk forskning Radiofysik;

    Abstract : Introduction: Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is one of the most important diagnostic tools in modern medicine. Compared to other imaging modalities, it provides superior soft tissue contrast of all parts of the body and it is considered to be safe for patients. READ MORE

  2. 2. Energy and intensity modulated radiation therapy with electrons

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Lennart Olofsson; Umeå universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radiation sciences; Radiation therapy; Conformal therapy; IMRT; Electrons; Electron treatment head; Electron MLC; Bremsstrahlung reduction; Integral dose; Penumbra; Output factor; Strålningsvetenskap; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Radiological research Radiation biology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Radiologisk forskning Strålningsbiologi; radiofysik; radiofysik;

    Abstract : In recent years intensity modulated radiation therapy with photons (xIMRT) has gained attention due to its ability to reduce the dose in the tissues close to the tumour volume. However, this technique also results in a large low dose volume. READ MORE

  3. 3. Calibration of Ionization Chambers for Measuring Air Kerma Integrated over Beam Area in Diagnostic Radiology

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicin och vård

    Author : Peter Larsson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; KAP-meter; DAP-meter; PKA; kerma area product; energy dependence; calibration; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Radiological research Radiological physics; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Radiologisk forskning Radiofysik;

    Abstract : The air kerma area product PKA is an important quantity used by hospital physicists in quality assurance and optimization processes in diagnostic radiology and is recommended by national authorities for setting of diagnostic reference levels. PKA can be measured using a transmission ionization chamber (kerma area product (KAP) meter) mounted on the collimator housing. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dosimetry and radiation quality in fast-neutron radiation therapy A study of radiation quality and basic dosimetric properties of fast-neutrons for external beam radiotherapy and problems associated with corrections of measured charged particle cross-sections

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicin och vård

    Author : Jonas Söderberg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neutron; Dosimetry; Radiotherapy; Monte Carlo; Microdosimetry; Cross-section; RBE; LET; Energy-loss corrections; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Radiological research Radiological physics; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Radiologisk forskning Radiofysik;

    Abstract : The dosimetric properties of fast-neutron beams with energies ≤80 MeV were explored using Monte Carlo techniques. Taking into account transport of all relevant types of released charged particles (electrons, protons, deuterons, tritons, 3He and α particles) pencil-beam dose distributions were derived and used to calculate absorbed dose distributions.

  5. 5. Quantifying image quality in diagnostic radiology using simulation of the imaging system and model observers

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicin och hälsa

    Author : Gustaf Ullman; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; radiology; radiation physics; image quality; optimisation; effective dose; chest radiography; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Radiological research Radiological physics; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Radiologisk forskning Radiofysik;

    Abstract : Accurate measures of both clinical image quality and patient radiation risk are needed for successful optimisation of medical imaging with ionising radiation. Optimisation in diagnostic radiology means finding the image acquisition technique that maximises the perceived information content and minimises the radiation risk or keeps it at a reasonably low level.
