The purpose of the research project grant from the Swedish Research Council is to give researchers the freedom to formulate by themselves the research concept, method and implementation, and to solve a specific research task within a limited period of time. The Swedish Research Council rewards research of the highest scientific quality in national competition.

In the 2018 call within Natural and Engineering Sciences Linköping University was granted 84 million SEK divided amongst 25 researchers and within Medicine and health 75 million SEK divided on 22 researchers.

CMIV Researchers Receiving Grants

In the medicine and health call Carl-Johan Carlhäll received grants for his research on multi parametric MRI and atrial fibrillation. Anneli Peolsson was granted funding for her research on innovative rehabilitation in chronic whiplash associated disorders. Kajsa Igelström was granted a starting grant for her research on brain imaging techniques in neuro psychiatric syndromes. The starting grant gives junior researchers the opportunity to establish themselves as independent researchers.

In the Natural and Engineering Sciences call Tino Ebbers received grants for is work on the cardiovascular functional avatar. Maria Engström received funding for a research project on imaging biomarkers in neuro-radiology. Markus Henningsson was awarded a starting grant for his research on quantitative MRI measurements of perfusion in the heart.

4D Flow simulation using CT comparable with MRI

In a recent publication in Radiology, CMIV researchers presented a  study where they used information from computer tomography images to simulate the heart function of an individual patient.

Modeling methods originally used to simulate flowing fluids and turbulence in the aeronautical and motor industries were applied on flow through the patients heart and blood vessels. The modeling methods simulated the blood flow in a patient’s heart with the aid of high-resolution CT images. The calculations needed were performed aided by computing power available at the National Supercomputer Centre (NSC) at Linköping University.

The results were verified against 4D flow MRI and the CT simulation provided very similar flow patterns and measurements compared with MRI.

Read more about the study in the links below. You can also hear the researchers talk about their research in the video.

During the Almedalen Week, Swedish Medtech is hosting a seminar on healthcare of the future. CMIV director Anders Persson is speaking on the subject of artificial intelligence and wether it is a hype or already a reality. The speech is followed by a panel discussion with Elin Karlsson, Läkarförbundet and
Christian Isacsson, Inera. The seminar is in Swedish.

The Almedal Week is an annual event in Visby on the Swedish island Gotland. The week is a democratic meeting place for politics and social issues.

Artificiell Intelligens – hype eller redan realitet?
4 juli 14:00 – 14:30
Hälsodalen, S:t Hans Café, S:t Hansplan 2, lokal: Fysiken

Förespråkarna för artificiell intelligens menar att tekniken kan hjälpa oss med såväl diagnoser, flöden och beslutsstöd. Men samtidigt finns varningar. Vad händer om besluten tas av en maskin, istället för en människa, ska vi vara rädda eller är detta lösningen?

Anders Persson, professor, föreståndare, Centrum för medicinsk bildvetenskap och visualisering (CMIV)
Elin Karlsson, ordförande i Läkarförbundets Råd för läkemedel, IT och medicinteknik, Läkarförbundet

During their visit to Region Östergötland the Swedish Government life science office and office director Jenni Nordborg also visited CMIV. The group was accompanied by the research director at Region Östergötland, Mats Ulfendahl, the Vice-Chancellor of Linköping University, Helen Dannetun and the dean of the Medical Faculty at Linköping University, Johan Dabrosin Söderholm.

Anders Persson presented the ongoing research at CMIV and in particular the successful projects where region, university and industry collaborate to create real patient values. Torbjörn Kronander, CEO at Sectra participated and gave the industry view on the collaboration model.


The life science office was established by the Ministry of Industry in the beginning of 2018 to coordinating policies, clarifying priorities and accelerate the work previously initiated to create the conditions for a competitive life science industry in Sweden. Jenni Nordborg will continue at her position as director of the health sector at VINNOVA alongside her new assignment.
