  1. 1. IT in Healthcare - Artefacts, Infrastructures and Medical Practices

    Author : Nina Lundberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : IS and Healthcare; artefact; infrastructure; interpretive field study; actor-network theory; PACS;

    Abstract : Globally, health care is making huge investments in information technology. Several studies illustrate that IT implementations have been fraught with problems. Everywhere, the problems appear to be similar, irrespective of the national health care system. The full potential of these technologies is not achieved, and their use is thus limited. READ MORE

  2. 2. The stack mode review of volumetric datasets : applications for urinary stone disease

    Author : Mats Lidén; Håkan Geijer; Torbjörn Andersson; Anders Magnusson; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stack mode display; image visualization; image perception; computed tomography; urinary stones; urolithiasis; PACS; Medicine; Medicin;

    Abstract : During the last decades the acquisition and visualization of radiological images have rapidly evolved. The increasing amounts of volumetric image data particularly from modern CT systems necessitate a constant evolution of the radiological visualization techniques. READ MORE

  3. 3. Characterization of PAC-contaminated soil with the focus on availability, leachability and biological activities

    Author : Monika M. Lam; Magnus Engwall; Maria Larsson; Patrik Andersson; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Polycyclic aromatic compounds; Availability; Mobility; Soil; Risk assessment; AhR-mediated activity; ER-mediated activity;

    Abstract : Current risk assessments of polycyclic aromatic compounds (PACs)-contaminated soil are often based on the 16 priority PAHs and do not consider availability of PACs in soil sufficiently. This may lead to uncertainties of the assessment, since important contaminants can be overlooked and only a small fraction of contaminants is available for the uptake for organisms. READ MORE

  4. 4. Legacy and emerging pollutants in pristine and polluted boreal catchments

    Author : Anh Minh Nguyen; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are bioaccumulative chemicals that are ubiquitously and globally distributed in the environment. Several species of POPs have been studied extensively and are continuously being monitored in various environmental matrices for decades. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Walk Into the Digital World - A Long and Winding Road

    Author : Kent Fridell; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Radiology departments are changing rapidly due to the implementation of digital image management and PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication Systems).When new information and communication technologies are implemented, there are organizational effects. READ MORE
