  2. 2. Interstitial Laser Thermotherapy of Liver Tumours. Methodology and Application

    Author : Páll Helgi Möller; Lund Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Resection; Liver; Neoplasm; Blood flow; Monitoring; Feedback control; Light penetration; Bare fibre; Sapphire probe; Nd:YAG laser; Interstitial thermotherapy; Hyperthermia; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : Interstitial laser thermotherapy (ILT) is a method well suited for selective local destruction of malignant tumours. In the present work, a laser thermotherapy system based on feedback temperature control of energy delivery (through computerised feedback system) was developed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Predicting Spatial and Stratigraphic Quick-clay Distribution in SW Sweden

    Author : Martin Persson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Quick clay; Stratigraphic modeling;

    Abstract : Clay sediments are associated with a wide variety of engineering problems, of which landslides, together with settlement, are the most investigated due to the large associated costs. Quick-clay deposits, which if disturbed can transform into a liquid, pose a serious threat to society in southwestern Sweden and have been involved in several large landslides, sometimes with fatal consequences.
