  1. 1. Placental Function : An Epidemiological and Magnetic Resonance Study

    Author : Sara Sohlberg; Anna-Karin Wikstrom; Matts Olovsson; Ajlana Mulic-Lutvica; Johan Wikström; Karel Marsal; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; body height; body mass index; early preeclampsia; late preeclampsia; magnetic resonance imaging; placenta; perfusion; IVIM; risk factors; energy metabolism; magnetic resonance spectroscopy; 31P-MRS; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : Placental function is central for normal pregnancy and in many of the major pregnancy disorders. We used magnetic resonance imaging techniques to investigate placental function in normal pregnancy, in early and late preeclampsia and in intrauterine growth restriction. READ MORE

  2. 2. Radiolabeled acetate PET in oncology imaging : studies on head and neck cancer, prostate cancer and normal distribution

    Author : Aijun Sun; Jens Sörensen; Silvia Johansson; Mikael Karlsson; Katrine Åhlström Riklund; Ingela Turesson; Heikki Minn; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 11C-acetate; 18F-fluoroacetate; PET; head and neck cancer; staging; delineating tumor volume; clearance rate; perfusion; RT; treatment outcome; benign and malignant lymph node; prostate cancer; normal distribution; Oncology; Onkologi; onkologi; Oncology;

    Abstract : The use of positron emission tomography (PET) for imaging in oncology has grown rapidly in recent years. 2-[18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) is the most common tracer of PET, although drawbacks exist. READ MORE

  3. 3. Quantification of pulmonary scintigraphy

    Author : Jiahua Xu; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Emphysema; Inhomogeneity; Perfusion; scintigraphy; SPECT; 99mTc-Technegas; Ventilation; V Q;

    Abstract : Modern nuclear medicine techniques, such as SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography), enable quantification and localisation of lung function in small lung elements, but appropriate methods are not yet available. The aim of the present project was therefore to develop and evaluate methods for mapping lung function in planar scintigrams and in SPECT. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pulse oximetry: Evaluation of a potential tool for early detection of critical congenital heart disease

    Author : Anne de-Wahl Granelli; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : pulse oximetry; duct-dependent; newborn screening; congenital heart disease; perfusion index;

    Abstract : Background: About one third of newborns with life-threatening congenital heart disease leave newborn nurseries without the problem being recognized, and risk death or serious damage from circulatory collapse. The main aim of this thesis has been to evaluate if routine newborn screening with pulse oximetry could improve early in-hospital detection of newborns with duct-dependent circulation (DDC).

  5. 5. Laser Doppler Perfusion Monitoring and Imaging especially as regards testing for sympathetic nerve function

    Author : Carolin Freccero; Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology; wavelength; sympathetic vasodilatation; sympathetic vasoconstriction; sympathetic nerve function; parasympathetic nerve function; laser Doppler perfusion imaging; laser Doppler perfusion monitoring; finger skin blood flow; fibre separation; contralateral cooling; Concentration; Fysiologi; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet; Diagnostik; Diagnostics;

    Abstract : The operating principle of all laser Doppler methods is based on the fact that incident photons shift in wavelength when interacting with moving blood cells passing through the microvascular network. After photodetection and further signal processing, the recorded parameter can be considered an arbitrary measure of tissue blood flow, and this is referred to as ?perfusion?. READ MORE
