About me

  • Kerstin Cederlund was qualified as a specialist in medical radiology 1991 and
    defended her thesis "Radiological imaging of pulmonary emphysema " at
    Karolinska Institutet 2002. Serve as Assistant Professor at Radiology
    Department at Karolinska University Hospital in Huddinge since 2003 and is
    responsible for the section of thoracic radiology.
    *Teaching interest*
    Lung cancer, pulmonary emphysema and CT of the heart.


  • *Research interest*
    ECG-triggered computed tomography of the heart
    Women undergoing invasive coronary angiography (ICA) are considered
    angiographically normal in 44 %. ECG-triggered computed tomography is a
    relatively new method for imaging of the coronary arteries. Studies show
    generally a high negative predictive value regarding evaluation of
    significant stenoses. Therefore we intend to study if investigation of women
    with chest pain might be improved by this less invasive technique. ECG-CT
    render it possible not only to evaluate the contrast-filled lumen but also
    the vessel wall. Calcified, as well as non-calcified plaques, and remodelling
    of the vessel wall can be detailed evaluated in vessels considered
    angiographically normal. This non-invasive technique render it thereby
    possible to study correlation of biomarkers reflecting inflammation,
    remodelling of extracellular matrix, lipid metabolism, chronic myocardial
    scarring, neurohormonally activation and cardiac function to the degree of
    coronary atherosclerosis measured by ECG-CT.
