    University dissertation from Umeå : Kirurgisk och perioperativ vetenskap

    Author : Karl Gisslén; Håkan Alfredson; Jon Karlsson; [2006]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; jumper’s knee; patellar tendinopathy; chronic pain; ultrasonography; doppler; neovascularisation; volleyball; weightlifting; VETERINARY MEDICINE Medicine; VETERINÄRMEDICIN Medicin; Orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Abstract : The principal aim of the present thesis was to prospectively follow (clinical status and ultrasound + Doppler findings) the patellar tendons in the young elite volleyball players at the Swedish National Centre for high school volleyball in Falköping. In an Olympic weightlifter with chronic painful jumper´s knee, the effects of treatment with sclerosing injections followed by early instituted very heavy weightlifting training, was also evaluated.

  5. 5. Gated Bayesian Networks

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Marcus Bendtsen; Jose M. Peña; Nahid Shahmehri; Helge Langseth; [2017]

    Abstract : Bayesian networks have grown to become a dominant type of model within the domain of probabilistic graphical models. Not only do they empower users with a graphical means for describing the relationships among random variables, but they also allow for (potentially) fewer parameters to estimate, and enable more efficient inference.
