Abstract: Assessment in structural MRI like hippocampal volumetry and white matter lesion (WML) assessment is receiving widespread attention and recommen-dation as important research and diagnostic tools. The aim in this thesis is to contribute to enhanced reliability and validity in structural MRI assessment. The hypothesis in Paper I was that long-term survivors of head and neck cancer with lowered quality of life had radiation induced damage to the hippocampus. The main hypothesis in Paper II was tha... more
