    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Perifer kärlsjukdom (peripheral arterial disease) innebär ett tillstånd med nedsatt blodcirkulation i benen som huvudsakligen beror på åderförkalkning (ateroskleros). De kliniska manifestationerna av perifer kärlsjukdom är fönstertittarsjuka (claudicatio intermittens) och svår cirkulationsnedsättning (kritisk ischemi) beroende på om blodcirkulationen är otillräcklig vid gång eller i vila.

  2. 2. Analysis and development of strategies for magnetic resonance functional neuroimaging

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Peter Fransson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuroimaging; human brain; functional activation; magnetic resonance imaging; cerebral blood oxygenation;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on strategies for oxygenation-sensitive MRI that are designed to measure alterations in brain physiology induced by changes in neuronal activity. In a first study, it was shown that the temporal evolution of BOLD MRI signal changes in response to both brief and sustained visual activation are equally well visible in FLASH and EPI recordings.

  3. 3. Ultrasound Image Analysis for Automated Classification of Atherosclerotic Plaque in the Human Carotid Artery

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Peter Holdfeldt; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; classification; dynamic programming; carotid artery; Java program; image segmentation; ultrasound images; intima-media thickness; atherosclerotic plaque;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular diseases, caused by atherosclerosis, is one of the most common causes of death in the industrialized world. Two risk factors, that both can be assessed with ultrasound, are the Intima-Media Thickness (IMT) in the arterial wall and the composition of the atherosclerotic plaque. READ MORE

  4. 4. Surface Modifications and Applications of Aqueous Silica Sols

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Peter Greenwood; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aqueous; silica sol; titania; silane; Surface modification; colloidal silica; applications;

    Abstract : Methods of modifying the surface of the particles of colloidal silica were developed and the effects of surface modification on the properties of colloidal silica were studied.Gamma-glycidoxypropyltrimethoxysilane (GPTMS) readily reacts with water to yield a hydrolysed silane that reacts readily with the silica surface.

  5. 5. Studies of Ultrafast Relaxation and Photodissociation Processes in Solution

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fysikum

    Author : Peter Salén; Stockholms universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ultrafast spectroscopy; liquid phase; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on femtosecond studies of relaxation and photo-induced dissociation processes in the liquid environment. Measurements are performed using both polarization sensitive and magic angle transient absorption spectroscopy with excitation wavelengths of 387 nm and 258 nm and a white light continuum probe.
