  1. 1. Geometric distortions in MRI based radiotherapy and PET/MRI

    Author : Josef Lundman; Tufve Nyholm; Anne Larsson; Jörgen Olofsson; Marco Riboldi; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Magnetic resonance imaging; MRI; PET MR; PET MRI; medical imaging; radiotherapy; geometrical distortions; MR-only; MRI-only; radiofysik; radiation physics;

    Abstract : Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) offers high soft-tissue contrast compared to computed tomography (CT). This contrast is helpful in many cases, not least for delineating tumours for radiotherapy treatment, and has led to increasing use in radiotherapy treatment planning (RTP). READ MORE

  2. 2. Quantitative Evaluation of Contrast Agent Dynamics in Liver MRI

    Author : Nils Dahlström; Örjan Smedby; Torkel Brismar; Anders Ynnerman; Carsten Thomsen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Liver; spleen; hepatobiliary system; liver function; MRI; DCE-MRI; Gd-EOBDTPA; Gd-BOPTA; pharmacokinetic; hepatocyte; relaxivity.; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The studies presented here evaluate the biliary, parenchymal and vascular enhancement effects of two T1-shortening liver-specific contrast agents, Gd-BOPTA and Gd-EOB-DTPA, in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of healthy subjects and of patients.Ten healthy volunteers were examined with both contrast agents in a 1.

  3. 3. Quantitative Tracer Based MRI Perfusion : Potentials and Limitations

    Author : Arvid Morell; Atle Bjørnerud; Håkan Ahlström; Linda Knutsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MRI; Perfusion; Contrast agent; Relaxivity; Radiology; Radiologi;

    Abstract : Tracer based MRI perfusion measurements is a clinically useful tool to assess regional distributions of tissue blood flow and volume. The method may be based on any of the three relaxation mechanisms T1, T1 and T2*, the latter denoted DSC-MRI being the most common. READ MORE

  4. 4. Assessment of Renal Physiology Using Functional MRI

    Author : Per Eckerbom; Per Liss; Fredrik Palm; Peter Hansell; Jarl Jakobsen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kidney; Renal; MRI; Phase contrast; ASL; BOLD; DWI; T1; COVID-19; Radiology; Radiologi;

    Abstract : Kidney injury is a major cause of morbidity and mortality throughout the world, leading to substantial individual suffering and to a heavy financial burden for the society. A large number of common conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, autoimmune diseases and infections are highly associated with kidney injury. READ MORE

  5. 5. MRI Contrast Enhancement using Gd2O3 Nanoparticles

    Author : Anna Klasson; Maria Engström; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; nanoparticles; gadolinium oxide; magnetic resonance imaging; contrast agent; Medicine; Medicin;

    Abstract : There is an increasing interest for nanomaterials in biomedical applications and in this work, nanoparticles of gadolinium oxide (Gd2O3) have been investigated as a novel contrast agent for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Relaxation properties have been studied in aqueous solutions as well as in cell culture medium and the nanoparticles have been explored as cell labeling agents. READ MORE
