  1. 1. DEFORMABLE IMAGE REGISTRATION OF SPINE MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGES WITH ELASTIX FOR DETAILED CHARACTERIZATION OF DISC LOADING BEHAVIORS

    University essay from

    Author : Zainab Sirat; [2021-05-10]
    Keywords : Medical physics; Registration; MRI; Spine;

    Abstract : Purpose: This work aimed to develop an optimized strategy for registration of spine magnetic resonance (MR) images acquired with and without spinal loading, as well as evaluate the quality of the registration strategy with commonly used quality assessment methods. Method: Previously collected MR images of the lumbar spine of 37 individuals were re analyzed. READ MORE

  2. 2. The value of cardiac MRI texture analysis in patients with clinically suspected myocarditis

    University essay from

    Author : Evin Ina Papalini; [2021-05-10]
    Keywords : Medical physics; Myocarditis; Cardiac magnetic resonance; Texture analysis;

    Abstract : Purpose: The aim of this proof-of-concept study was to assess the diagnostic value of texture analysis (TA) based on conventional balanced steady-state-free precession (bSSFP), late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) and T2-weighted cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) in patients with clinically suspected myocarditis.Method: A retrospective cohort study was performed based on 30 patients whounderwent a comprehensive CMRI due to clinically suspected myocarditisbetween 2013 and 2018 at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital: 10 patients with clinical signs and positive myocardial biomarkers (Troponin T, indicating myocardial injury) as well as positive CMRI findings according to Lake Louise Criteria (LLC; group 1), 10 patients with clinical signs and positive myocardial biomarkers but negative CMRI findings according to LLC (group 2), and 10 patients with clinical signs but both negative myocardial biomarkers as well as CMRI findings according to LLC (control group).

  3. 3. Deep Learning with Importance Sampling for Brain Tumor MR Segmentation

    University essay from KTH/Optimeringslära och systemteori

    Author : Hanna Westermark; [2021]
    Keywords : Deep learning; importance sampling; segmentation; convolutional neural networks; MRI; brain tumour; Djupinlärning; importance sampling; segmentering; faltningsnätverk; MRI; hjärntumör;

    Abstract : Segmentation of magnetic resonance images is an important part of planning radiotherapy treat-ments for patients with brain tumours but due to the number of images contained within a scan and the level of detail required, manual segmentation is a time consuming task. Convolutional neural networks have been proposed as tools for automated segmentation and shown promising results. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pre-planning of Individualized Ankle Implants Based on Computed Tomography - Automated Segmentation and Optimization of Acquisition Parameters

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Matilda Engström Messén; Elvira Moser; [2021]
    Keywords : osteochondral lesions of the talus; computed tomography; U-net; convolutional neural network; dice coefficient; fotled; ledbrosk; osteochondral lesion of the talus; datortomografi; U-net; convolutional neuralt nätverk; dicekoefficient;

    Abstract : The structure of the ankle joint complex creates an ideal balance between mobility and stability, which enables gait. If a lesion emerges in the ankle joint complex, the anatomical structure is altered, which may disturb mobility and stability and cause intense pain. READ MORE

  5. 5. Correlation between PET/MRI image features andpathological subtypes for localized prostate cancer

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Jens Lindahl; [2021]
    Keywords : MRI; PET; Image features; Image processing; Localized prostate cancer; Pathological subtypes; MR; PET; Bildegenskaper; Bildbehandling; Lokal prostata cancer; Patologiska undertyper;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in Sweden. Patients with the condition have a good prognosis in general and most cases can be treated. READ MORE
