«Quality assurance and technical aspects of embolization of uterine myomas»

Radiological intervention procedures are constantly growing as a result of new and more modern devices and examination methods. Due to the fact that the largest human-induced radiation dose to the population comes from radiological procedures, it is important to provide a knowledge base on the quality and effectiveness of such procedures. It is important to meet national quality requirements and that the treatment the patients receive is effective and safe.

The purpose was to carry out an internal quality assurance study of the procedure UAE at St Olav's hospital as part of systematic quality work. This quality assurance study was conducted to elucidate whether the patients receive the treatment they are entitled to, and whether the treatment is in line with current recommendations. It was therefore chosen to look at a well-established method for embolization of uterine myomas (UAE) to assess this. Both efficiency and patient safety were in this quality study compared to international and national findings.

"Perioperative monitoring of cardiac function based on transesophageal echocardiographic data"

Major cardiac interventions are known to have a negative impact on heart function. Patients that undergo cardiac surgery have their heart carefully monitored and evaluated perioperatively in order to determine whether the heart restores and maintains the desired functionality. Currently, cardiac monitoring remains largely qualitative. Quantitative measures for cardiac function has been an active field of research for years and with technological advancement being made to transesophageal echocardiography, it is expected that automated functional monitoring can be facilitated. TEE provides acquisitions of high- quality and frame rate, making automated computation of both global and regional cardiac function feasible. MAPSE, mitral annular peak velocities and strain are well established cardiac parameters that describe motion, rate of motion and deformation of the myocardium, and they are reported to relate well with cardiac function. The main aim of this thesis is to compute cardiac functional parameters automatically by a combining speckle tracking and velocity estimation from tissue Doppler measurements.

"Fast Non-Rigid Registration Using Polynomial Expansion with Diffeomorphic Constraints Applied to Cardiac Ultrasound Volumes"

This thesis attempted to develop a fast, non-rigid, diffeomorphic image registration implementation and was written as a continuation of a project that was completed during the fall of 2016 [1] which developed and implemented a rigid image registration code. Non-rigid diffeomorphic image registration is already used in many diagnostic and research related medical situations, however due to the computational demands it is only used as a post-processing tool. This thesis focused mostly on how it could be used with 3D echocardiography to estimate a vector field representation of the movement of the heart, preferably in real-time.
