  1. 1. Medical doctors’ specialty choice : in relation to personality, cultural capital and social background

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science and Education, Södersjukhuset

    Author : Caroline Olsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Globally and in Sweden, there is a lack of doctors in some medical specialities. With a growing population and increasing demand for a functional healthcare sector, there is a need to understand more about medical doctors’ specialty choices. READ MORE

  2. 2. Predicting Normal Tissue Complications after External Beam Radiation Therapy

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science and Education, Södersjukhuset

    Author : Caroline Olsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NTCP; fractionation effects; radiobiological modelling; pubic bone pain;

    Abstract : Although modern external beam radiation (EBRT) therapy has the ability to conform the dose tightly around the volume to be treated, unwanted irradiation to surrounding normal tissue is still a problem. The probability of a side effect arising in normal tissue after EBRT is commonly modelled by an s-shaped dose-volume response curve where dose or volume are plotted against response (i. READ MORE

  3. 3. Radiation Oncology Data and Modelling Side Effects after Radiation Therapy

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Caroline Olsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dose and side effect data; dose-volume response; fractionation effect; LQ model; sequential two-phase radiotherapy; head and neck cancer; parotid gland; xerostomia; pelvic radiotherapy; gynecological cancer; pubic bone; pain; data integration;

    Abstract : Although modern radiation therapy techniques have the ability to conform the dose distribution of ionizing radiation tightly around the volume to be treated, unwanted irradiation to surrounding organs remains a problem. The probability of a side effect arising in the normal tissue of a patient after radiation therapy can be modelled by sigmoid mathematical functions known as normal tissue complication probability (NTCP) models.

  4. 4. Transcriptional profiling of human embryonic stem cells and their functional derivatives

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Jane Synnergren; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Naturvetenskap; Natural sciences; transcription; differentiation; human embryonic stem cells; gene expression;

    Abstract : Human    embryonic    stem    cells    (hESCs)    represent    populations    of    pluripotent, undifferentiated  cells  with  unlimited  replication  capacity,  and  with  the  ability  to differentiate into any functional cell type in the human body. Based on these properties, hESCs  and  their  derivatives  provide  unique  model  systems  for  basic  research  on embryonic development. READ MORE
