  • A MedTech West seminar: Microstructure imaging with diffusion MRI

    Introduced by professor Stephan Maier, Department of Radiology at Sahlgrenska University hospital Presented by Torben Schneider, research associate at University College London Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is typically used to identifying the macroscopic damage in spinal cord injury (SCI), but it provides little detail about the microscopically changes associated with the injury. Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) is sensitive to the microstructural environment of water molecules, and therefore it provides unique insight…

    A MedTech West seminar: Under-sampled reconstruction techniques for accelerated magnetic resonance imaging

    NOTE! Monday is the last day to register to receive the light lunch. Introduced by professor Stephan Maier, Department of Radiology at Sahlgrenska University hospital and presented by Mohammad Kayvanrad, PhD, from Robarts Research Institute at the University of Western Ontario Due to physical and biological constraints and requirements on the minimum resolution and SNR, the acquisition time is relatively long in MRI. Accelerating the acquisitions without compromising the imaging quality…

    We have now moved in at the new address: Röda stråket 10 B. Welcome to visit us at the “MedTech West house”!

    Master thesis presentation – Monitoring device for improved treatment in volume targeted ventilation of infants

    Presented by Oscar Edvardsson, MPBME On Friday, August 29 at 10.00 am. at Landahlsrummet (room 7430), Hörsalsvägen 11, 7th floor Examiner: Ants Silberberg Abstract Around 10 % of all infants require ventilatory assistance at birth. Recent studies have shown that large tidal volumes can cause damage to the lungs and that resuscitators often underestimate applied volumes. This leads to suffering for patients and chronic lung diseases at later stages in…

    The new MedTech West House

    We will soon be moving in to the new MedTech West House placed at Röda stråket just beside the preschool. Västfastigheter needs a few more days to work on creating a new address for us. See you all soon in the new MedTech West house!

    An MedTech West seminar: New imaging biomarkers of liver and lung function with Paul Hockings

    Abstract:   Medical imaging enhances the ability to quantify the impact of drugs on human health compared to ordinary or invasive clinical assessments and can therefore be used to decrease patient numbers and/or duration of exposure in clinical trials and to accelerate drug development. This presentation will discuss AstraZeneca’s efforts to develop new imaging biomarkers of liver and lung function using a mixture of animal and human imaging studies. Hepatobiliary…

    A seminar with Professor Richard Hartley, Australian National University

    Welcome to a seminar at Chalmers with Prof. Richard Hartley, Australian National University. Time: Tuesday, September 2 at 3 pm Location: EB-salen, Hörsalsvägen 11   Title: Riemannian manifolds, kernels and learning Abstract Prof. Hartley will be talking about recent results from a number of people in his group on Riemannian manifolds in computer vision. In many Vision problems Riemannian manifolds come up as a natural model. Data related to a problem…

    Welcome to a WiSE seminar with Professor Ann Wennerberg, chair of Department of Prosthodontics, Faculty of Odontology, Malmö University.   Time: Thursday September 4 at 12.00-13.30. Location: Landahlsrummet, 7th floor, Hörsalsvägen 9, Chalmers Johanneberg   We will get inspired by Professor Ann Wennerberg’s research and career achievements. Her work is focused on materials, designs and surfaces of oral implants.   During the seminar we offer lunch. Please register by the…

    Nominera en kollega till MTF:s pris för framstående insatser inom medicinsk teknik i sjukvården

    Syftet med det relativt nyinrättade priset hos Svensk Förening för Medicinsk Teknik och Fysik är att komplettera Erna Ebelings pris. Det nya prisets uppgift är att ge ett erkännande till en person som gjort framstående insatser inom medicinsk teknik i svensk hälso- och sjukvård. Bedömningskommittén kommer att rikta in sig på insatser som exempelvis har ökat patientsäkerheten, fått en tydlig tillämpning i vården och/eller givit andra tydliga avtryck i den dagliga verksamheten….

    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…
