Welcome to my homepage!

Hi and welcome to my homepage. My name is Niclas Börlin, and I'm a senior lecturer at the Department of Computing Science, Umeå University, Sweden.

My research consists mainly of high precision measurements in digital x-ray images. I defended my thesis Model-based Measurements in Digital Radiographs on June 9th, 2000. The abstract of my thesis may be found here.

Today's quote:

Rocky's Lemma of Innovation Prevention
    Unless the results are known in advance, funding agencies will
    reject the proposal.

A large part of my research is connected to Radiostereometric Analysis (RSA). A description of RSA may be found here.

If you are looking for UmRSA, the commercial RSA system, you should look here.

Note: Radiostereometric Analysis (RSA), previously known as Roentgen Stereophotogrammetric Analysis is not related to the encryption method RSA.
