  1. 1. Adipose tissue as an active organ : blood flow regulation and tissue-specific glucocorticoid metabolism

    Author : Jonas Andersson; Tommy Olsson; Stefan Söderberg; Sverker Jern; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1; adipose tissue; autonomic nervous system; blood flow; cortisol; nitric oxide; weight loss.; medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : Background: Despite advances in the treatment of atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. With the population getting older and more obese, the burden of cardiovascular disease may further increase. READ MORE

  2. 2. Testicular blood flow : methodological and functional studies in the rat

    Author : Jan-Erik Damber; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Different methods of measuring testicular blood flow in the rat were compared in an attempt to find an accurate method for measuring physiological testicular blood flow. It was found that both the Xenon- 133 clearance technique and the radioactive microsphere technique probably reflect true physiological blood flow in the testis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hypertension, blood pressure, cognition and cerebral blood flow in the cohort of "Men born 1914"

    Author : Faina Reinprecht; Geriatrik; []

    Abstract : "Men born 1914" is a population based cohort study of the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease. Five hundred men, born 1914, were examined at the age of 68 and 185 of them were re-examined at 81 years of age. READ MORE

  4. 4. Blood flow assessment in cerebral arteries with 4D flow magnetic resonance imaging : an automatic atlas-based approach

    Author : Tora Dunås; Anders Eklund; Anders Wåhlin; Jan Malm; Einar Heiberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Circle of Willis; 4D flow MRI; Cerebral arteries; Vascular disease; Stroke; Automatic labeling; Probabilistic atlas; Cerebral blood flow; Neuroimaging; Magnetic Resonance Imaging;

    Abstract : Background: Disturbed blood flow to the brain has been associated with several neurological diseases, from stroke and vascular diseases to Alzheimer’s and cognitive decline. To determine the cerebral arterial blood flow distribution, measurements are needed in both distal and proximal arteries. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulation of Microvascular Blood Flow : a clinical and experimental study based on laser Doppler perfusion imaging

    Author : Helena Golster; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Local blood flow reflexes in the foot skin of healthy controls and in young diabetic patients with or without nerve dysfunction have been studied using laser Doppler perfusion imaging (LDPI). A neurophysiological follow-up study on nerve dysfunction is presented as a complerhent to the work on blood flow regulation in the young diabetics. READ MORE
