FoU - Christer Grönlund

I mainly work on signal/image processing techniques of biomedical signal within the fields of bioelectricity, and ultrasound imaging. Applications of the methods are in cardiovascular and skeletal muscle tissue characterization. 

Degrees: Assoc. Prof. in 2012, and Ph.D. from the University of Umeå, Sweden in 2007. M.Sc. in engineering physics from the University of Umeå, Sweden in 2002.

Research projects:
Cardiovascular arterial plaque and cardiac tissue characterization
Ultrasonic analysis of co-ordination between cardiac blood flow and wall motion
High speed multimodal analysis of skeletal muscle contraction
Surface electromyography imaging

Development projects:
• Programmable high-speed near-infrared spectroscopy spectroscopy (NIRS) system
• Method for simultaneous measurement of cardiac flows and myocardial motion
• Platform for real-time analysis of vascular plaques
