  1. 1. Movement artifact reduction in laser Doppler blood flowmetry : myocardial perfusion applications

    Author : MG Daniel Karlsson; Karin Wårdell; Knut Kvernebo; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Laser Doppler perfusion monitoring (LDPM) and imaging (LDPI) enable assessment of tissue microvascular perfusion. The techniques are based on the Doppler broadening of the optical spectrum occurring when coherent laser light is scattered by moving red blood cells (RBC). READ MORE

  2. 2. Contributions to Signal Processing for MRI

    Author : Marcus Björk; Peter Stoica; Andreas Jakobsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Parameter estimation; efficient estimation algorithms; non-convex optimization; multicomponent T2 relaxometry; artifact reduction; T2 mapping; denoising; phase estimation; RF design; MR thermometry; in-vivo brain; Electrical Engineering with specialization in Signal Processing; Elektroteknik med inriktning mot signalbehandling;

    Abstract : Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an important diagnostic tool for imaging soft tissue without the use of ionizing radiation. Moreover, through advanced signal processing, MRI can provide more than just anatomical information, such as estimates of tissue-specific physical properties. READ MORE

  3. 3. Reduction of metal artifacts in MR imaging of patients with total hip arthroplasty

  4. 4. Creating opportunity by connecting the unconnected : mobile phone based agriculture market information service for farmers in Bangladesh

    Author : M. Sirajul Islam; Åke Grönlund; Rahul Dé; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ICT4D; agriculture market information service; design science research; mobile phones; farmers; technology acceptance; artifact design; Bangladesh; least developed countries; Informatics; Informatik; Informatik; Informatics;

    Abstract : This thesis is framed within the research area of Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D), which is concerned with how ICT can make a difference to the lives of the poor. This study focuses primarily on mobile phones and how they can be used as part of an Agriculture Market Information Service (AMIS) in order to provide crucial information to farmers in Bangladesh.

  5. 5. Metal artifacts in computed tomography : impact of reduction methods on image quality and radiotherapy treatment planning

    Author : Karin Andersson; Per Thunberg; Eva Norrman; Jan Persliden; Anders Tingberg; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; computed tomography; metal artifacts; image quality; visual grading analysis; radiotherapy; proton therapy; hip prosthesis; dental implants;

    Abstract : Degradation of image quality by metal artifacts is a common problem in computed tomography (CT) imaging, which can limit the diagnostic value of a CT examination and also introduce inaccuracies in radiotherapy (RT) treatment planning. In recent years, commercial metal artifact reduction (MAR) methods have been launched by several CT vendors. READ MORE
