The medical imaging system Sectra PACS from Sectra Imtec contains a 3D mode that can be used for visualising image stacks from e.g. computed tomography. Various structures of human anatomy can be visualised in the 3D mode, but visualisations of the bronchial tree of the lungs rarely become good enough to be useful.
Grade 2 gliomas are malignant brain tumours affecting otherwise healthy adults. Although the long-term prognosis is poor, many patients are well and may have a high quality of life for several years. There is, however, a large variability in the natural course
Digital image analysis is the field of extracting relevant information from digital images. Recent developments in imaging techniques have made 3-dimensional volume images more common. This has created a need to extend existing 2D image analysis tools to handle images of higher
The positron emitting radionuclide 68Ga (T1/2 = 68 min) might become of practical interest for clinical positron emission tomography (PET). The metallic cation, 68Ga(III), is suitable for complexation with chelators, either naked or conjugated with biological macromolecules. Such labelling procedures require pure
