  1. 1. Error reduction strategies for quantitative PET with focus on hybrid PET/MRI

    Author : Elin Wallstén; Anne Larsson; Jan Axelsson; Katrine Riklund; Ronald Boellaard; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Positron emission tomography; PET; PET MR; PET MRI; medical imaging; partial-volume effect; attenuation correction; radiofysik; radiation physics;

    Abstract : Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is an important tool for detection, staging and follow-up in a wide range of diseases, including cancer and neurological disorders. As a functional imaging tool, PET can visualize biological processes, where positron emitting radioactive isotopes are connected to molecules with different functions in the body. READ MORE

  2. 2. PET and MR imaging in prostate cancer

    Author : Kristina Sandgren; Tufve Nyholm; Joakim Jonsson; Camilla Thellenberg-Karlsson; Lennart Blomqvist; Heidi Lyng; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; PET; PSMA; MRI; PET MRI; imaging; prostate cancer; intraprostatic tumour detection; radiofysik; radiation physics;

    Abstract : The current risk assessment of prostate cancer (PC) relies on histopathological samples from biopsies and clinical variables such as prostate-specific antigen (PSA). However, this comes with uncertainties and in some cases it can be challenging to separate patients who would benefit from radical treatment and those who would not. READ MORE

  3. 3. Quantitative methods for tumor imaging with dynamic PET

    Author : Ida Häggström; Anne Larsson; Mikael Karlsson; Lennart Johansson; Jens Sörensen; Magnus Dahlbom; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : There is always a need and drive to improve modern cancer care. Dynamic positron emission tomography (PET) offers the advantage of in vivo functional imaging, combined with the ability to follow the physiological processes over time. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quantitative imaging with PET : performance and applications of 76Br, 52Fe, 110mIn and 134La

    Author : Mark Lubberink; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; PET; Positron Emission Tomography; Quantitative Imaging; bromine; iron; indium; lanthanum; Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi;

    Abstract : The use of positron emission tomography (PET) has so far mainly been limited to a few nuclides with short half-lives such as 11C and 18F. Certain applications require nuclides with longer half-lives, such as 76Br and 52Fe. READ MORE

  5. 5. PET applications in schizophrenia : Functional and pharmacological dopamine studies
