  1. 1. English Colour Terms in Context

    Author : Anders Steinvall; Gunnar Persson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; English language; basic colour terms; elaborate colour terms; cognitive linguistics; metonymy; domain; context; markedness; figurative meaning; type modification; classifying function; vantage; reference point; attribute; entrenchment; radial category; corpus; English language; Engelska språket; engelska; English;

    Abstract : This thesis examines usage of English colour terms in context, based on an extensive computerised text corpus, the Bank of English. It describes the ways in which English colour terms may be used to refer to nuances outside their normal area of designation and to attributes outside the colour domain. READ MORE

  2. 2. Magnetic resonance imaging with ultrashort echo time as a substitute for X-ray computed tomography

    Author : Adam Johansson; Tufve Nyholm; Karlsson Mikael; James Balter; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; magnetic resonance imaging; computed tomography substitute; ultrashort echo time; parallel imaging; radial imaging; radiofysik; radiation physics;

    Abstract : Radiotherapy dose calculations have evolved from simple factor based methods performed with pen and paper, into computationally intensive simulations based on Monte Carlo theory and energy deposition kernel convolution.Similarly, in the field of positron emission tomography (PET), attenuation correction, which was originally omitted entirely, is now a crucial component of any PET reconstruction algorithm.

  3. 3. Congenital upper limb anomalies : studies of epidemiology and hand function

    Author : Anna Gerber Ekblom; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Objectives: This thesis has three interrelated aims. (1) To describe the epidemiology of congenital upper limb anomalies (CULA) in Stockholm County, Sweden, in order to augment the few existing population studies of CULA (paper I); (2) To measure the incidence of different categories of CULA while using and evaluating a recently proposed new classification scheme (Oberg, Manske and Tonkin (OMT) Classification) based on more current knowledge of limb development than the previously used International Federation of Societies for Surgery of the Hand (IFSSH) Classification is based on (paper II); and (3) To investigate the relationship between measurements of body function and structure with both activity and participation in children and adults with radial longitudinal deficiency (RLD) by using the International Classification of Functioning and Health (ICF) framework, in order to shed light on what aspects of physical limb function and structure actually affect individuals’ daily life activity (papers III and IV).

  4. 4. Passenger assessments of quality in local public transport- measurement, variability and planning implications

    Author : Helena Sjöstrand; Trafik och väg; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; passenger; public transport; quality; survey; Stated Preference; assessment; assignment; planning; Transportteknik; Transport technology; Road transport technology; Vägtransportteknik;

    Abstract : The aim of this work was to get a more detailed basis for planning of local public transport. With more knowledge of how segments of travellers assess different parts of a journey, bus routes can be planned to fit either all passengers or selected groups better. READ MORE

  5. 5. New ultrasonographic approaches to monitoring cardiac and vascular function

    Author : Anna Bjällmark; Lars-Åke Brodin; Kjell Karp; KTH; []

    Abstract : Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. To decrease mortality and morbidity in cardiovascular disease, the development of accurate, non-invasive methods for early diagnosis of atherosclerotic cardiac and vascular engagement is of considerable clinical interest.
