    Abstract : Throughout the last century, medical imaging has come to revolutionise the way we diagnose disease, and is today an indispensable part of virtually any clinical practice. In cardiovascular care imaging is extensively utilised, and the development of novel techniques promises refined diagnostic abilities: ultrasound elastography allows for constitutive tissue assessment, 4D flow magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) enables full-field flow mapping, and micro-Computed Tomography (CT) permits high-resolution imaging at pre-clinical level.

  3. 3. Non-invasive monitoring of low molecular weight biomarkers relevant to skin inflammation and cancer

    Author : Skaidre Jankovskaja; Tautgirdas Ruzgas; Johan Engblom; György Marko-Varga; Melinda Rezeli; Pawel Lukasz Urban; Malmö universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Tryptophan; Kynurenine; Phenylalanine; Tyrosine; Low molecular Weight Biomarkers; Non-Invasive; Skin Surface Sampling; Skin Permeability; Hydrogels; Prussian White; Health and society; Hälsa och samhälle;

    Abstract : Development of skin inflammation and cancer in viable epidermis and dermis involve slow molecular weight (LMW) metabolites. We hypothesize that these LMW compounds can be collected on the surface of the skin and used for non-invasive diagnostics of skin disorders. READ MORE

  4. 4. Non-Invasive Characterization of Liver Disease : By Multimodal Quantitative Magnetic Resonance

    Author : Markus Karlsson; Peter Lundberg; Gunnar Cedersund; Nils Dahlström; Stergios Kechagias; Steven Sourbron; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : There is a large and unmet need for diagnostic tool that can be used to characterize chronic liver diseases (CLD). In the earlier stages of CLD, much of the diagnostics involves performing biopsies, which are evaluated by a histopathologist for the presence of e.g. fat, iron, inflammation, and fibrosis.

  5. 5. Biophysical aspects of the skin barrier : towards increased non-invasive extraction and optimized biomarker sampling

    Author : Maxim Morin; Johan Engblom; Sebastian Björklund; Nicole K Brogden; Malmö universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The skin provides a link to the body’s health via its rich variety of high and low molecular weight biomarkers, reflecting both systemic diseases (e.g., cancer, diabetes) and local skin disorders (e.g. READ MORE
