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

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Nina Lundberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Mats Lidén; Håkan Geijer; Torbjörn Andersson; Anders Magnusson; [2013]
    Keywords : 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

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Monika M. Lam; Magnus Engwall; Maria Larsson; Patrik Andersson; [2018]
    Keywords : 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. A Walk Into the Digital World - A Long and Winding Road

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology

    Author : Kent Fridell; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    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

  5. 5. The wind of change : Individuals change when technology change

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Sciences

    Author : Kent Fridell; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The production of digital images has been well-known within radiology for many years through its use of modalities such as computer tomography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance tomography. During the latter part of the 1980´s a new technology, Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) was introduced making it possible to manage X-ray pictures in their original, digital form.
