  1. 1. Esophageal- and Gastroesophageal Junctional Cancer : Aspects on Staging, Treatment and Results

    Author : Gustav Linder; Jakob Hedberg; Magnus Sundbom; Wilhelm Graf; Bas P.L. Wijnhoven; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Esophageal cancer; Education level; Tonometry; Lymphadenectomy; PET MRI; Kirurgi; Surgery;

    Abstract : Esophageal- and gastroesophageal junctional (GEJ) cancer is the sixth cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Some improvements in care are attributed to nationwide disease-specific registries, preoperative staging and increased understanding of mechanisms affecting patient selection. READ MORE

  2. 2. Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) as a multimodality imaging probe for sentinel nodes : Design and Preclinical Evaluation

    Author : Renata Madru; Lund Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : iron oxide; nanoparticles; SPIONs; PET-MRI; SPECT-MRI; SPECT-MRI- optical imaging; sentinel lymph node; SNL;

    Abstract : Breast cancer and malignant melanoma disseminate through the lymphatic system and the first metastases arise in one or two regional, sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) draining the primary tumour site. Therefore, identification and characterization of the SLNs is of major importance for cancer staging and for choice of therapy in patients. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development of probes for molecular imaging : evaluation in models of inflammation and atherosclerosis

    Author : Mona Ahmed; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : The imaging field is rapidly evolving and in the last two decades there have been tremendous developments in the field of multimodal imaging. Multimodal molecular imaging approaches that utilize ultrasound/magnetic resonance imaging (US/MRI), single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography (SPECT/CT), or positron emission tomography/MRI (PET/MRI) may provide additional detailed information at the cellular and molecular level to help identify patients with vulnerable plaques that are at risk of rupture.

  4. 4. Efficient GPU-based Image Registration : for Detailed Large-Scale Whole-body Analysis

    Author : Simon Ekström; Robin Strand; Filip Malmberg; Joel Kullberg; Håkan Ahlström; Fred Hamprecht; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Magnetic resonance imaging; Image registration; whole-body; Radiology; Radiologi;

    Abstract : Imaging has become an important aspect of medicine, enabling visualization of internals in a non-invasive manner. The rapid advancement and adoption of imaging techniques have led to a demand for tools able to take advantage of the information that is produced. READ MORE

  5. 5. Integrating multi-omics for type 2 diabetes : Data science and big data towards personalized medicine

    Author : Klev Diamanti; Jan Komorowski; Claes Wadelius; Manfred Grabherr; Peter Spégel; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; type 2 diabetes; multi-omics; genomics; metabolomics; data science; machine learning; personalized medicine; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a complex metabolic disease characterized by multi-tissue insulin resistance and failure of the pancreatic β-cells to secrete sufficient amounts of insulin. Cells recruit transcription factors (TF) to specific genomic loci to regulate gene expression that consequently affects the protein and metabolite abundancies. READ MORE
