  • MedTech West seminar – Measuring Tissue Water Diffusion with MRI: Reconciling Models with Reality

    By any account, magnetic resonance (MR) diffusion imaging has proved a very successful imaging approach. The ability to diagnose stroke-related damages early and to characterize and monitor tumor lesions, along with the ability to capture fiber architecture, has made it an especially valuable diagnostic and research tool. The development of reliable diffusion imaging techniques, capable of probing slow random motion in the presence of involuntary rigid motion and tissue deformation,…

    Minikonferens – Sport och smarta textilier

    Vad drömmer du som idrottsutövare om? Smarta textilier öppnar upp en delvis ny värld för både motionärer och elitidrottare. Funktionell design gör sportkläder allt mer specialiserade för olika idrotter, till exempel genom att hjälpa till att reglera kroppstemperatur och ge muskelstöd. Flera av de sensorer som vi i allt högre utsträckning använder oss av för att mäta prestation integreras nu i kläderna, vilket ger nya spännande möjligheter. På konferensen möts idrottare, tränare,…

    Master thesis presentation – Design and preliminary testing of an MR-compatible eye tracking system

    Presented by Taimaz Begdjani and Fredrik Steen Date:  Wednesday 12th of March, 10.00 Location:  Conference room “Lunnerummet”, Chalmers EDIT-building Examiner:  Prof. Mikael Persson, Chalmers S2 Abstract Eye tracking makes it possible to track the gaze and analyse the pattern with which a person scans his/her visual field. One interesting possibility with eye tracking is the combination of this method together with other measurement systems. For this project, the other modality…

    MedTech West seminar – Better acute care for trauma and stroke patients by improving prehospital diagnosis and workflow
