  1. 1. Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Clinical Diagnosis Exploring and Improving the Examination Chain

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Mattias Ragnehed; Peter Lundberg; Maria Engström; Örjan Smedby; Peter Fransson; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Radiological research Radiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Radiologisk forskning Radiologi;

    Abstract : Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) is a relatively new imaging technique, first reported in 1992, which enables mapping of brain functions with high spatial resolution. Functionally active areas are distinguished by a small signal increase mediated by changes in local blood oxygenation in response to neural activity. READ MORE

  2. 2. Positron Emission Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Techniques in Diabetes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lina Carlbom; Håkan Ahlström; Olle Korsgren; Olof Eriksson; Lars Johansson; Tove Grönroos; [2018]
