  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. APOPTOTIC EFFECTS IN RENAL CORTEX AFTER TREATMENT WITH 177LU-OCTREOTATE

    University essay from

    Author : Michelle Andersson; [2021-05-10]
    Keywords : Medical physics; 177Lu-octreotate; renal cortex; kidney; QPCR; gene expression; transcriptional regulation; apoptosis;

    Abstract : Purpose: The purpose of this project was to investigate gene regulation of a predeterminedpanel of apoptotic genes in murine renal cortex after treatment with 177Lu-octreotate after one day and seven days. Theory: The kidneys and bone marrow are the risk organs in 177Lu-octreotate treatment, but by fractioning the treatment the bone marrow recovers. READ MORE

    Author : Mattias Wedin; Isak Bengtsson; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : For the last decade, the use of machine learning in neuroscientific research has become a popular topic. For instance, image recognition has been used together with machine learning to detect and also help improve the diagnostics of diseases. READ MORE

  4. 4. PDGF-C signaling is required for normal cerebellar development : An analysis of cerebellar malformations in PDGF-C impaired mice

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Sara Gillnäs; [2021]
    Keywords : PDGF-C; Cerebellum; Development; PDGFRɑ; Ependyma; Neural migration;

    Abstract : Platelet-derived growth factor-C (PDGF-C) and its tyrosine kinase receptor PDGFRɑ have been shown to contribute to several key processes during central nervous system (CNS) development, including normal vascularization and formation of cerebral ventricles and basal membrane of the meninges. Due to redundancy between PDGF-C and PDGF-A, PDGF-C specific roles are sometimes masked and difficult to determine. READ MORE

  5. 5. Building Tolerance to Gut Bacteria: Quantification of Goblet Cell – Immune Interactions in the Proximal and Distal Colon

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Author : Nellie Asseh Hall; [2021]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Goblet cell - immune cell interactions and their role in inflammatory bowel disease Goblet cells, specialized mucus secreting cells lining the gut, are key players in mediating immune responses. While the mucus layer functions as a barrier against the intrusion of foreign bacteria into the host, substances from e. READ MORE
