  1. 1. Integration of MRI into the radiotherapy workflow

    Author : Joakim Jonsson; Tufve Nyholm; Mikael Karlsson; Magnus Karlsson; Uulke van der Heide; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; magnetic resonance imaging; radiotherapy; treatment planning; image registration; workflow; radiofysik; radiation physics;

    Abstract : The modern day radiotherapy treatments are almost exclusively based on computed tomography (CT) images. The CT images are acquired using x-rays, and therefore reflect the radiation interaction properties of the material. READ MORE

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

    Author : Lennart Olofsson; Mikael Karlsson; Magnus Karlsson; Björn Zackrisson; Erik Traneus; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; 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; Radiation biology; Strålningsbiologi; radiofysik; radiation physics;

    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. Aeroacoustics Studies of Duct Branches with Application to Silencers

    Author : Mikael Karlsson; Mats Åbom; Luc Mongeau; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; silencer; muffler; confined flows; flow duct; aeroacoustics; vortex sound; acoustic multiports; linear stability; self-sustained oscillations; whistling; Herschel-Quincke tube; acoustic resonator; Fluid mechanics; Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : New methodologies and concepts for developing compact and energy efficient automotive exhaust systems have been studied. This originates in the growing concern for global warming, to which road transportation is a major contributor. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fc receptors and feedback regulation by antibodies

    Author : Mikael Karlsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Mouse; B lymphocytes; Fc; receptors; IgG; IgE; FcgRI; FcgRII; FcgRIII; Fc e RI; CD23; Rh prophylaxis; Haemolytic disease of the newborn; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Pathology; patologi;

    Abstract : The purpose of this investigation was to determine the role of Fc receptors for IgG (FcγRI, FcγRIIB, FcγRIII and FcRn) in immunoregulation. IgG is known to enhance the response to soluble antigens such as bovine serum albumin whereas the response to particulate antigens is suppressed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Managing Complex Environmental Risks for Sustainable Development

    Author : Mikael Karlsson; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Sustainable development; risk assessment; risk management; complexity; trust; scientific uncertainty; hazardous chemicals; genetically modified organisms; reflexive modernization; ecological modernization; environmental policy; polluter pays principle; pr; Miljö- och energisystem; Environmental and Energy Systems; Hållbar utveckling; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : The thesis is concerned with the problematic question on how to manage complex environmental risks in a way that promotes sustainable development. While there are some positive signs on progressive and successful environmental policy, environmental change resulting from human activities still causes severe problems and risks worldwide. READ MORE
