  1. 1. Maxillofacial cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) : aspetcs on optimisation

    University dissertation from Malmö university, Faculty of Odontology

    Author : Ayman Al-Okshi; Malmö University.; [2017]
    Keywords : ODONTOLOGY; ODONTOLOGI; Medicine; CBCT; OPTIMISATION; DOSAGE;

    Abstract : Maxillofacial Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) has become a common modality for imaging of the facial skeleton. The increased, and sometimes inappropriate, use of this modality and the fact that radi-ation doses from CBCT examinations are generally higher than those from conventional radiography will result in an increase in the radiation dose and radiation-associated risk to which patients are exposed.

    Abstract : During the last decades, a new policy involving normalisation, integration, equality and deinstitutionalisation of mentally retarded (MR) individuals has been accepted in Sweden. Consequently, many institutions have been closed and an increased number of people with MR are now integrated into the Swedish community. READ MORE

  3. 3. Structural studies of the surface adhesin SspB from Streptococcus gordonii

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Nina Forsgren; Karina Persson; Inger Andersson; [2010]

    Abstract : Surface proteins on microorganisms that build up the oral biofilm are key players in the formation of the biofilm. Antigen I/II proteins are surface adhesins found on virtually all oral streptococci and share a conserved multi-domain architecture. These adhesins bind surface components on other bacteria and on host cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. Inflammatory cell death of human macrophages induced by Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans leukotoxin

    University dissertation from Umeå : Institutionen för odontologi
