ICEBI and EIT 2016 ‒ conferences on Bioimpedance and Tomography

Welcome to ICEBI and EIT 2016 ‒ two conferences on Bioimpedance and Tomography which will take place on June 19-23. The conferences are arranged by KTH, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm County Council and the City of Stockholm.

Welcome to Imaging 2016!

An international conference on imaging techniques in subatomic physics, astrophysics, medicine, biology and industry. The conference is organised by KTH Royal Institute of Technology and sponsored by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, KVA.


Promising results for bioimpedance as a tool for early detection of stroke

The technology of bioimpedance seems to be possible to use to discover the effects of a stroke already in an acute phase. This is shown in a dissertation at KTH School of Technology and Health.
– Early discovery and identification of acute stroke could enable the start of treatment already in the ambulance transport of the patient, says Fernando Seoane, Associate Professor in Medical Engineering.


KTH-centre for medical imaging inaugurated

On Monday 26 October, the KTH-centre Jonasson Centre for Medical Imaging was inaugurated in Flemingsberg, Huddinge. The centre shall provide scientists within engineering and medicine access to advanced equipment for medical imaging methods and microscopy.
– I hope this will be the natural choice to tur nto when in need of imaging equipment for biomedical research in the Stockholm region, said Örjan Smedby, head of centre and professor at KTH School of Technology and Health.
