  1. 1. SPECT Imaging using Pinhole Collimation : System Design and Simulation Studies for Pre-Clinical and Clinical Imaging

    Author : Mikael Peterson; Lund Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pinhole SPECT tomography; Nuclear medicine imaging; Monte Carlo-based image reconstruction;

    Abstract : The focus of this dissertation is the use of pinhole collimation in Nuclear Medicine. A pinhole is a single aperture in an opaque material that is placed between the detector and source of interest, and photons must pass through the hole to reach the detector. The choices of pinhole parameters, e.g. READ MORE

    Abstract : Early detection is vital to successfully treating breast cancer, and mammography screening is the most efficient and wide-spread method to reach this goal. Imaging low-contrast targets, while minimizing the radiation exposure to a large population is, however, a major challenge. READ MORE

  4. 4. Diagnostic criteria and dose limiting approaches for image modalities in odontology

    Author : Daniel Benchimol; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Objectives: Technical innovations in radiography enable the development of new approaches to reduce the dose to patients. The aim of this thesis was to explore dose optimization approaches for the most frequently used radiographic modalities in dentistry. Material and Methods. READ MORE

  5. 5. Linear and Nonlinear Transport in Quantum Nanostructures
