The risk of developing breast cancer is higher in what are known as dense breasts. Researchers at LiU have now shown that there are major biological differences between dense breasts and nondense breasts.
How is your liver doing? Decades of research into the use of magnet resonance imaging is now being put to work to gain information about patients’ livers – without needles.
Taking tissue samples to diagnose fatty liver can be replaced in most cases by a painless magnetic resonance investigation, according to a new study.
CMIV’s MRI systems will do even more valuable service as part of
a four-year research project aimed at better diagnosis of liver disease
and reducing risk in surgical procedures. Peter Lundberg, adjunct
professor in magnetic resonance physics, is leading the project.
Our research purposes are to further characterize the natural history of NAFLD, identify factors that influence the progression and to develop and validate diagnostic methods for NAFLD.
In our research group, we use combined fMRI-EEG and mathematical modelling in studies of brain function related to different mental states e.g., sleep, wakefulness, meditation, and pain.
WCMM at LiU focuses on the medicine-technology interface, and build upon our existing strengths in research within medical technology, materials science and bioengineering.
CMIV conducts focused front-line research providing solutions to tomorrow’s clinical issues. The CMIV mission is to develop future methods and tools for image analysis and visualization for applications within health care and medical research.
We conduct research in medical radiology and visualisation, radiation physics, radiochemistry and radioecology.
The research areas at HMV include experimental basic research to clinical, social and public health research. We conduct high-quality education in the sought-after care professions.
The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences conducts research and education within medicine, healthcare and public health.
