Using dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI), it is possible to estimate pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters that convey information about physiological properties, e.g., in tumors. In DCE-MRI, errors propagate in a nontrivial way to the PK parameters. We propose a method based on multivariate linear error propagation to calculate uncertainty maps for the PK(More)
PURPOSE Survival for high-grade gliomas is poor, at least partly explained by intratumoral heterogeneity contributing to treatment resistance. Radiological evaluation of treatment response is in most cases limited to assessment of tumor size months after the initiation of therapy. Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and its estimate of the(More)
MATERIALS AND METHODS: K-space was sampled radially using N profiles, see Fig. 1, where N = 7. The time order of the profiles was not implemented using a conventional angular increment of Δφ = 180°/N. Instead, the angular increment Δγ of the profiles was chosen to be as close as possible to 180° divided by the golden ratio, Δγ =180°/(√5+1)/2≈111°. If an(More)
We have suggested a novel method PRESTO-CAN including radial sampling, filtering and reconstruction of k-space data for 3D-plus-time resolved MRI. The angular increment of the profiles was based on the golden ratio, but the number of angular positions N was locked to be a prime number which guaranteed fix angle positions. The time resolution increased(More)
BACKGROUND In recent years, there has been a considerable research effort concerning the integration of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) into the external radiotherapy workflow motivated by the superior soft tissue contrast as compared to computed tomography. Image registration is a necessary step in many applications, e.g. in patient positioning and(More)
Erbium (Er)- and Ytterbium (Yb)-codoped monoclinic KLu(WO4)2 single crystals were grown by top seeded solution growth-slow cooling method for several different doping concentrations. Growth parameters have been optimized to obtain macrodefect-free single crystals. Er energy levels involved in the 4I13/2-->4I15/2 were determined by 6 K polarized optical(More)
In this master thesis methods for increasing temporal resolution when reconstructing radially sampled MRI data have been developed and evaluated. This has been done in two steps; first the order in which data is sampled in k-space has been optimized, and second; temporal filters have been developed in order to utilize the high sampling density in central(More)
In recent years, texture analysis of medical images has become increasingly popular in studies investigating diagnosis, classification and treatment response assessment of cancerous disease. Despite numerous applications in oncology and medical imaging in general, there is no consensus regarding texture analysis workflow, or reporting of parameter settings(More)
Introduction In dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MRI, errors propagate in a highly non-trivial way from a number of sources of uncertainty to the parametric maps. Several authors have investigated this topic using simulations, e.g., Kershaw et al. [1]. However, knowledge of the uncertainty should, ideally, accompany each parametric map in DCE-MRI. For this(More)
OBJECTIVE Multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and PI-RADS (Prostate Imaging - Reporting and Data System) has become the standard to determine a probability score for a lesion being a clinically significant prostate cancer. T2-weighted and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) are essential in PI-RADS, depending partly on visual assessment of signal(More)
