    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; radiology; Clinical physics; quantitation; reconstruction; three-dimensional; tomography; positron; emission; 3D; PET; medical instrumentation; Klinisk fysiologi; radiologi; tomografi; medicinsk instrumentering;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the developments of two different low-cost scanners for positron emission tomography (PET) based on 3D acquisition, are presented. 3D reconstruction methods for these systems are also presented. READ MORE

  2. 2. Brain processing of experimental muscle pain and its interrelation with proprioception and muscle fatigue positron emission tomography study

    University dissertation from Radiation Physics, Lund

    Author : Alexander Korotkov; Docent Tomas Graven-Nielsen; [2005]
    Keywords : Experimental muscle pain; Hypertonic saline; Kinesthesia; Proprioception; Movement; Vibration; Muscle fatigue; Brain; Imaging; Positron emission tomography; Regional cerebral blood flow;

    Abstract : Chronic muscle pain is a significant medical and social problem and better understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms involved is an important requirement for further development of diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation methods. Experimental imaging studies have investigated functional neuroanatomy of different pain components. READ MORE

    Abstract : New biomarkers are needed to improve knowledge about pathophysiology, in order to provide earlier correct diagnosis and to follow disease progression of the neurodegenerative diseases amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Parkinson's disease (PD). The aim of this thesis was to find new biomarkers for these diseases. READ MORE
