  2. 2. Teamwork training using patient simulation

    Author : Lisbet Meurling; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Teamwork is an important factor in safe healthcare. Simulation based team training (SBTT) is a method to gain the non-technical skills important for proficient teamwork. This thesis evaluated SBTT using different modalities and evaluation levels, looking at whole teams of either medical students or full professionals. READ MORE

  3. 3. Simulation supported training in oral radiology : methods and impact on interpretative skill

    Author : Tore Nilsson; Jan Ahlqvist; Martin Rydmark; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Virtual reality; simulation; simulator; radiology; radiography; learning; skill acquisition; visual-spatial ability; parallax; Radiology; Radiologi; odontologi; Odontology;

    Abstract : Simulation is an important tool when training is hazardous, time consuming, or expensive. Simulation can also be used to enhance reality by adding features normally not available in the real world. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the Improvement of Healthcare Management Using Simulation and Optimisation

    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Simulation; Optimization; Management; Healthcare;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns healthcare management and specifically addresses the problems of operating room planning and waiting list management. The operating room department is one of the most expensive areas within the healthcare system which necessitates many expensive resources such as staff, equipment and medicine. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development of methods for evaluation and optimization of chest tomosynthesis

    Author : Angelica Svalkvist; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Chest tomosynthesis; Evaluation; Optimization; Simulation; Image Quality; Dosimetry; Dose reduction; Nodule simulation; Validation;

    Abstract : Tomosynthesis is a low-dose technique that has attracted increasing interest from the medical imaging community during the past decade. Tomosynthesis refers to the technique of acquiring a number of projection radiographs using extremely low exposure over a limited angular range, and using these radiographs to reconstruct slices of the imaged object.
