At this lunchseminar Kristina Malmgren, professor at the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology at the Sahlgrenska Academy, and Jan Wipenmyr, senior project manager at RISE Acreo, will tell us about the wearITmed project. The overall objective of the project is to develop a novel wearable sensor system with advanced signal processing and sensor fusion that utilises textiles as an active component to overcome problems related to signal artefacts...

MedTech West lunchseminar: Inferring the causality network inside the brain for the development of Alzheimer’s disease: statistical inference approach with Hamed Farhadi
In this talk, Hamed Farhadi will present recent results on inferring the pathways of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) propagation inside the brain. In this study, they intended to infer the causality network for the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease (A-beta and Tau) inside the brain using clinical data obtained from positron emission tomography (PET) of elderly patients at Massachusset General Hospital (MGH). First, Hamed will briefly present the... Read More
How successful strategies ultimately fail- if pursued too long Learnings from a journey from discovery to a global medical device Corporation At this lunch seminar Jeppe Magnusson will take us on a journey from discovery and early clinical develoment through market introduction and global penetration for a wellknown medical device corporation. Management focus and consequences of strategies will be discussed in the light of milestones and value... Read More
MedTech West lunch seminar: Prehospital ICT Arena and the project PrehospIT / stroke – where are we now?
At this MedTech West lunch seminar, professor of practice Bengt Arne Sjöqvist, project leader and program manager at Prehospital ICT Arena på Lindholmen Science Park, will talk about the arena and the project as well as update us on what is going on right now. ICT and eHealth has the potential to radically improve prehospital care in many aspects. Prehospital ICT Arena (PICTA) was formed at Lindholmen Science Park in 2014. It is a neutral,... Read More
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... Read More
In this seminar, Ylva Lilja, MD PhD, and Oscar Gustafsson, PhD student in MRI physics at Sahlgrenska University Hospital and coauthor to the study, will present Ylva´s doctoral thesis as an example of clinical applications of DTI and tractography, including the possibilities and challenges of the techniques. The visual pathways in the brain are essential for human vision. Injury to the structures leads to visual impairment of different degrees,... Read More
