    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för maskinteknik

    Author : Hamidreza Bayat; Mohammad Abbasi; [2023]
    Keywords : Open Hole tensile test; Digital Image Correlation; Strain Rate; Istra 4D; Thickness reduction rate;

    Abstract : As technology is developing in all automotive companies, car body designers have also investigated new materials such as composite and aluminum alloys. Designing modern car structures has also created various challenges in the production process, including formability limitations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evaluation of whole-body bone scans performed using a gamma camera with Cadmium Zinc Telluride detector

    University essay from

    Author : Victor Asp; [2022-01-13]
    Keywords : Medical physics; whole-body bone scans; gamma camera; Cadmium Zinc Telluride detector;

    Abstract : The bone scan is a common nuclear medicine imaging procedure that is mainly used for evaluating several oncological patient groups. A radioactive tracer, 99mTc -labelled diphosphonate, is injected intravenously and accumulates in the skeleton. The distribution of the tracer in the body is measured with a gamma camera 3 hours post-injection. READ MORE

  4. 4. Development and evaluation of an inter-subject image registration method for body composition analysis for three slice CT images

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för informationsteknologi

    Author : Hugo Dahlberg; [2022]
    Keywords : Medical imaging; Image registration; SCAPIS;

    Abstract : Over 30 000 liver, abdomen, and thigh slices have been acquired by computed tomography for the SCAPIS and IGT study. To utilise the full potential of the large cohort and enable statistical pixel-wise body composition analysis and visualisation of associations with other biomarkers, a point-to-point correspondence between the scans is needed.

  5. 5. Spatiotemporal PET reconstruction with Learned Registration

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Pierre Meyrat; [2022]
    Keywords : PET; Tomographic reconstruction; Deep Learning; MLEM; PET; Tomografisk rekonstruktion; Deep Learning; MLEM;

    Abstract : Because of the long acquisition time of Positron Emission Tomography scanners, the reconstructed images are blurred by motion. We hereby propose a novel motion-correction maximum-likelihood expectation-maximization algorithm integrating 3D movements between the different gates estimated by a neural network trained on synthetic data with contrast invariance.
