  1. 1. Optical projection tomography based 3D-spatial and quantitative assessments of the diabetic pancreas

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå centrum för molekylär medicin (UCMM)

    Author : Tomas Alanentalo; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nkx; development; optical projection tomography; 3D visualisation; pancreas; beta-cell mass; insulitis; diabetes; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : The gastrointestinal tract comprises a number of digestive organs including the stomach and pancreas. The stomach is involved in the digestion and short term storage of food while the pancreas is a mixed endocrine and exocrine gland which provides the body with hormones and enzymes essential for nutritional utilisation.

  2. 2. Diabetes in 3D β-cell mass assessments in disease models & evaluation of SPECT based imaging

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Saba Parween; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Optical projection tomography; Diabetes; β-cell mass; disease etiology; 3D imaging; radiotracers; Single photon emission computed tomography; molekylär medicin genetik och patologi ; Molecular Medicine;

    Abstract : Diabetes is a rapidly growing disease with 415 million affected adults worldwide. The pancreatic endocrine cells, most importantly the insulin producing β-cells, play an important role in regulating blood glucose homeostasis. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Colours of Diabetes advances and novel applications of molecular optical techniques for studies of the pancreas

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Christoffer Nord; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Optical projection tomography; Technique development; Near-infrared; 3D visualization; Biomedical imaging; ß-cell mass; Diabetes; Vibrational micro spectroscopy;

    Abstract : Diabetes is a rapidly increasing health problem. In a global perspective,approximately 415 million people suffered from diabetes in 2015 and this number ispredicted to increase to 640 million by 2040. To tackle this pandemic there is a needfor better analytical tools by which we can increase our understanding of the disease. READ MORE

    Abstract : The mouse pancreas is a mixed exocrine and endocrine glandconsisting of three lobular compartments: the splenic, duodenal and gastric lobes. During embryogenesis, the pancreas forms from two progenitor populations located on the dorsal and ventral side of the primitive gut tube. READ MORE

  5. 5. Spindle vibration and sound field measurement using optical vibrometry

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Kourosh Tatar; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Mechanical systems often produce a considerable amount of vibration and noise. To be able to obtain a complete picture of the dynamic behaviour of these systems, vibration and sound measurements are of significant importance. Optical metrology is well-suited for non-intrusive measurements on complex objects. READ MORE
