  1. 1. Assessment of Renal Physiology Using Functional MRI

    Author : Per Eckerbom; Per Liss; Fredrik Palm; Peter Hansell; Jarl Jakobsen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kidney; Renal; MRI; Phase contrast; ASL; BOLD; DWI; T1; COVID-19; Radiology; Radiologi;

    Abstract : Kidney injury is a major cause of morbidity and mortality throughout the world, leading to substantial individual suffering and to a heavy financial burden for the society. A large number of common conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, autoimmune diseases and infections are highly associated with kidney injury. READ MORE

  2. 2. Quantitative Tracer Based MRI Perfusion : Potentials and Limitations

    Author : Arvid Morell; Atle Bjørnerud; Håkan Ahlström; Linda Knutsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MRI; Perfusion; Contrast agent; Relaxivity; Radiology; Radiologi;

    Abstract : Tracer based MRI perfusion measurements is a clinically useful tool to assess regional distributions of tissue blood flow and volume. The method may be based on any of the three relaxation mechanisms T1, T1 and T2*, the latter denoted DSC-MRI being the most common. READ MORE

  3. 3. Volumetric MRI measurements of velocity and flow - Accuracy, visualisation and technical improvements

    Author : Anders Nilsson; Lund Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MRI; 4D flow; phase contrast MRI; velocity mapping;

    Abstract : In the last two decades, phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (PC-MRI) has evolved from two-dimensional velocity and flow measurements to volumetric, time-resolved depictions of velocity fields (4D PC). The acquisition of time-resolved velocity fields allows flow visualisations that might provide better understanding of the dynamics of the cardiac system. READ MORE

  4. 4. Contributions to quantitative dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI

    Author : Anders Garpebring; Mikael Karlsson; Ronnie Wirestam; Nils Östlund; Jón Hauksson; Steven Sourbron; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI; quantitative imaging; parameter estimation; uncertainty estimation; arterial input function; radiofysik; radiation physics;

    Abstract : Background: Dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) has the potential to produce images of physiological quantities such as blood flow, blood vessel volume fraction, and blood vessel permeability. Such information is highly valuable, e.g., in oncology. READ MORE

  5. 5. MRI Perfusion Measurements using Magnetic Susceptibility Effects: : Calibration Approaches and Contrast Agent Quantification

    Author : Emelie Lind; Lund Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; contrast agent; cerebral blood flow; cerebral blood volume; mean transit time; perfusion; dynamic susceptibility contrast MRI; magnetic susceptibility;

    Abstract : Exchange of oxygen and nutrients between blood and tissue occurs at the capillary level of the blood system. The blood volume flow rate in the capillaries is often referred to as perfusion, and knowledge about perfusion provides important information about the function and viability of the tissue, for example, in patients with ischaemic stroke, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases.
