    Prehospital Diagnostics for Traumatic Thoracic Injuries project receives co-funding

    Stefan Candefjord´s and Rubén Buendía´s project “Prehospital Diagnostics for Traumatic Thoracic Injuries” has received co-funding from S.o. KG Eliassons tilläggsfond 2016. Traumatic injuries cause about six million deaths per year worldwide, and many survivors suffer life-long disabilities.Traffic accidents and falls in the home are common causes. Thoracic (related to chest) account for over a quarter of fatal and severe injuries. Two common thoracic severe injuries are pneumothorax (PTX) and hemothorax…

    MTW lunch seminar with professor Paul Meaney on Microwave Tomography: Translation to the Clinic

    There has been a wide range of interest and hype surrounding microwave imaging for a number of decades. Much of the interest has centered in academia and especially in the numerical modeling realm. The major motivations are that tissue dielectric properties can be remarkably specific and that microwave radiation is nonionizing. For instance, breast tumors generally have higher dielectric properties than normal breast tissue – a possible mechanism for cancer…
