  1. 1. Homicide Injury Quantification : Measures of injury severity in homicide victims and associations with homicide characteristics

    Author : Fredrik Tamsen; Ingemar Thiblin; Peter Mygind Leth; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Homicide; Injury score; Injury quantification; Offender profiling; Rättsmedicin; Forensic Medicine;

    Abstract : Some previous studies have found that the amount and severity of injuries in homicide victims correlate with different homicide characteristics, such as the victim-offender relationship and drug influence of the offender. If such relationships exist, they may be used by homicide investigators as part of an offender profiling. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ultrasonic Quantification of Skeletal Muscle Dynamics : Feasibility and Limitations

    Author : Frida Lindberg; Lars-Åke Brodin; Christer Grönlund; Tomas Jansson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ultrasound; skeletal muscle; intramuscular; dynamics; Tissue Doppler Imaging; Speckle Tracking; strain; quantification;

    Abstract : Pain and disorders of the human skeletal muscles are one of the most common reasons for medical consultations in the western countries today and there is a great need to improve both the understanding and treatment of several different muscular conditions.Techniques describing the muscle function in vivo are often limited by either their invasiveness or lack of spatial resolution.

  3. 3. Quantification Methods for Clinical Studies in Nuclear Medicine - Applications in AMS, PET/CT and SPECT/CT

    Author : Marie Sydoff; Malmö Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nuclear Medicine; AMS; PET CT; SPECT CT; dosimetry; internal dosimetry; quantification; activity quantification; volume delineation; radiation; biokinetics; pharmacokinetics; biodistribution;

    Abstract : An essential part of the development of new radiopharmaceuticals for use in diagnostic nuclear medicine is the determination of its biokinetic properties. The uptake and turn-over of the radiopharmaceutical in the source organs is of great interest since this could determine whether the radiopharmaceutical would be suitable for clinical use or not.

  4. 4. Quantification and Visualization of Cardiovascular Function using Ultrasound

    Author : Matilda Larsson; Lars-Åke Brodin; Hans Torp; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ultrasound; Tissue Doppler imaging; Speckle tracking imaging; cardiovascular function; visualization; quantification; Medical engineering; Medicinsk teknik;

    Abstract : There is a large need for accurate methods detecting cardiovascular diseases, since they are one of the leading causes of mortality in the world, accounting for 29.3% of all deaths. READ MORE

  5. 5. Multiscale Methods and Uncertainty Quantification

    Author : Daniel Elfverson; Axel Målqvist; Frédéric Legoll; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; multiscale methods; finite element method; discontinuous Galerkin; Petrov-Galerkin; a priori; a posteriori; complex geometry; uncertainty quantification; multilevel Monte Carlo; failure probability; Beräkningsvetenskap med inriktning mot numerisk analys; Scientific Computing with specialization in Numerical Analysis;

    Abstract : In this thesis we consider two great challenges in computer simulations of partial differential equations: multiscale data, varying over multiple scales in space and time, and data uncertainty, due to lack of or inexact measurements.We develop a multiscale method based on a coarse scale correction, using localized fine scale computations.
