  • Medtech West involved in a new publication

    Medtech West involved in a new publication The article Microwave-based stroke diagnosis making global pre-hospital thrombolytic treatment possible was recently published in IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering. In the article, researchers from Chalmers University of Technology, Sahlgrenska University Hospital and the Sahlgrenska Academy present the results from the proof-of-principle studies involving 45 patients. The results show that the technique with great certainty can distinguish between a thrombosis and a cerebral…

    WiSE workshop with Johanna Andersson, Head of Equality Work at Chalmers.

     Johanna will give us an insight of Chalmers equality work and then guide us through a workshop with focus on interaction, specifically on how to identify and avoid suppression techniques (härskartekniker). We will have videos and discussion material as tools for bringing problems to the fore, addressing various questions and engage in important, often complex, issues.   During the seminar we offer lunch. Please register by the latest on June…

    MedTech West researcher Andrew Mehnert receives Docent title from Chalmers University of Technology

    On Tuesday, the 3rd of June, 2014, the MedTech West researcher Andrew Mehnert received the title of Docent in Medical Image Analysis from the Chalmers University of Technology Department of Signals and Systems – S2.   His qualification required, in addition to a PhD, substantially greater documented independent ability to lead in formulating and solving scientific research problems, as well as pedagogic competence at the advanced graduate level of study….

    A Chalmers seminar with professor Todd Kuiken, Northwestern University

     Developing Neural interfaces for Robotic Prostheses Speaker: Professor Todd Kuiken, Northwestern University Dr. Kuiken’s research team is working to develop a neural-machine interface to improve the function of artificial limbs. A main research focus of his lab has been a novel technique to use nerve transfers for the improvement of myoelectric upper limb prosthesis control. By transferring the residual arm nerves in an upper limb amputee to spare regions of…

    Agnes Tegen- a new addition to the MedTech West team

    Agnes Tegen completed the degree of Master of Science in Engineering Mathematics at Lund University in 2014, specializing in image processing and medical applications. In parallel, she studied psychology at the same university. Agnes wrote her master’s thesis on methods used for detection of objects in images utilizing textual descriptions. She will present her findings at the 22nd International Conference on Pattern Recognition.She has joined MedTech West as an in-house researcher to commence her…

    Master thesis presentation – Supervoxel based algorithms for use in Breast MRI CAD Systems

    Presented by Magnus Ziegler Abstract Breast Cancer (BCa) is the most common cancer for women in the Western world, and the American National Institutes of Health estimates that approximately 12.3 % of American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lifetime. Breast MRI is increasingly used clinically as an adjunct to traditional x-ray mammography and ultrasound for the detection and characterization of BCa. The interpretation…

    A MedTech West seminar – We see faces everywhere – but how?

    Insights from brain imaging studies. From the moment we are born, humans have the amazing capacity to detect and orient towards faces. Our face perception system is evolved to the point that we are sometimes even start seeing faces where there are none (e.g. the man in the moon). In this seminar, Nouchine Hadjikhani will present results of more than a decade of research on face perception using fMRI and magneto-encephalography,…
