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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fredrik Tamsen; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : 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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Frida Lindberg; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : 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.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Inom området diagnostisk nuklearmedicin används radioaktiva läkemedel som ges (administreras) till patienterna i syfte att diagnostisera ett antal olika sjukdomstillstånd. Då man tar fram nya radioaktiva läkemedel för användning inom diagnostisk nuklearmedicin handlar det många gånger om att uppskatta mängden av ett visst upptag av radiofarmakat i olika organ och vävnader i kroppen.

    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. Towards specific quantification of exosomes using surface-based sensing

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Deborah Rupert; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; label-free; surface plasmon resonance.; exosome; binding rate; antibody; concentration; nanoparticle tracking analysis; quantification; liposome; cluster of differentiation 63 CD63 ; diffusion; specific detection; mass transport limited conditions; extracellular vesicles; surface-based biosensor;

    Abstract : When exosomes were first observed in 1967, they were believed to be cell debris until extensive studies demonstrated key biological functionalities related to their composition and formation mechanism. Exosomes are nanometer-sized lipid vesicles of endocytic origin, with a membrane consisting of lipids and proteins and encapsulating a cargo composed of soluble proteins and genetic material.
