    University dissertation from Clinical Physiology and Nuclear Medicine Unit, Department of Clinical Sciences, Malmö, Lund University

    Author : Lennart Lundblad; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Fysiologi; radiologi; tomografi; tomography; medical instrumentation; Clinical physics; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Penh; emphysema; airway resistance; gas conditioning; plethysmography; lung mechanics; Boyle s law; Physiology; medicinsk instrumentering; Klinisk fysiologi; radiology; enhanced pause; pulmonary fibrosis; micro computed tomography; forced oscillation technique; COPD;

    Abstract : In this thesis we explore and further develop several techniques used in the animal laboratory as well as in the clinical setting. In particular, we expand the understanding and usefulness of plethysmographic techniques in small rodents. READ MORE

  2. 2. Dynamic changes in T cell compartments and new approaches in evaluating DSS induced and Gai2 deficient colitis

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Maria Fritsch Fredin; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; colitis; Gai2- - mice; dextran sodium sulfate; ex vivo cultures; micro-Computed Tomography; IEL; thymus; Inflammatory Bowel Disease;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to increase the understanding of the immunopathology of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). The first aim was to elucidate how the thymus and the gut epithelium were affected by colitis. The second aim was to investigate new ways of assessing and monitoring colitis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mechanical analyses of trabecular bone and its interaction with implants

    Abstract : Bone substitute materials or implants are commonly used in the surgical treatment of bone fractures. However, severe complications are sometimes reported. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pain in Osteoarthritic Joints: Biological Signaling and 3D Models based on Imaging

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Birgitta Gatenholm; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Osteoarthritis; pain in knee joints; cartilage lesions; micro-computed tomography; 3D CAD models; neuropeptides;

    Abstract : Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disease, causing disability in middle-aged and elderly patients worldwide and imposing a huge socioeconomic burden. OA of the knee joint is a major cause of joint pain and, along with back pain, it accounts for the two most-reported causes of chronic pain. READ MORE

  5. 5. Non-invasive imaging for improved cardiovascular diagnostics Shear wave elastography, relative pressure estimation, and tomographic reconstruction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : David Marlevi; KTH.; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicinsk teknologi; Medical Technology; Medical imaging; Cardiovascular disease; Atherosclerosis; Hemodynamics; Ultrasound; Shear Wave Elastography SWE ; Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI ; 4D flow MRI; Relative Pressure; Virtual Work-Energy; micro-Computed Tomography micro-CT ; Tomographic reconstruction; Pre-clinical imaging; Medicinsk avbildning; Hjärt-kärlsjukdomar; Ateroskleros; Hemodynamik; Ultraljud; Skjuvvågselastografi SWE ; Magnetresonanstomografi MRI ; 4D flödes-MRI; Tryckfall; Virtuellt flöde; mikro-Datortomografi mikro-CT ; Tomografisk rekonstruktion; Preklinisk avbildning;

    Abstract : Medicinsk avbildning utgör idag en central del av modern klinisk diagnostik, och bildgivande diagnostikverktyg har kommit att i grunden förändra sättet på vilket dagligt kliniskt arbete utförs. Medicinsk bildteknik används också i stor utsträckning inom hjärt-kärldiagnostik, och i takt med att nya tekniker utvecklas kan förfinad information inhämtas: ultraljudsbaserad elastografi möjliggör avbildning av vävnaders mekaniska egenskaper, fyrdimensionella blodflödesmönster kan kartläggas genom 4D flödes-magnetresonanstomografi (MRI), och mikro-Datortomografi (mikro-CT) möjliggör preklinisk avbildning i mikrometerupplösning.
