  1. 1. Women’s experiences of giving birth in healthcare facilities in India - a systematic literature review

    University essay from

    Author : Júlía Dögg Haraldsdóttir; Åsa Tröseid; [2022-01-27]
    Keywords : childbirth; India; experience; healthcare facilities;

    Abstract : Background: Although nearly 80 % of pregnant women in India give birth in healthcare facilities in India, the maternal mortality rate remains unacceptably high. A positive and safe birth experience is very important for pregnant women and an important factor for choosing to give birth in healthcare facilities. READ MORE

  2. 2. osimetric impact of system spe cific geometric distortion on head and neck treatment plans in MRI only based radiation therapy

    University essay from

    Author : Jesper Brovall; [2022-01-13]
    Keywords : Medical physics; Dosimetry; MRI; Radiation therapy;

    Abstract : Background/ purpose: Because of the superior soft tissue contrast, in comparison with computed tomography (CT) data, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is of high interest to include in a larger extent in the ra diation therapy (RT) process. In an MRI only workflow, the CT scan is excluded and a synthetic CT is used for treatment plan ning. READ MORE

  3. 3. ESTIMATION OF RADIATION EXPOSURE FROM NATURALLY OCCURRING RADIONUCLIDES IN FOOD AND FOODSTUFF

    University essay from

    Author : Ida Bengtsson; [2022-01-13]
    Keywords : Medical physics; Naturally occurring radionuclides; committed effective dose from ingested radionuclides; Biokinetic models;

    Abstract : Purpose: The main purpose of this study was to provide an estimation of the committed effective dose received by the Swedish population from naturally occurring radionuclides (NORM) in the diet. This study was also aiming to investigate the impact on the committed effective dose due to the new developments in the biokinetic model for Po 210 . READ MORE

  4. 4. STANDARDIZED ORGAN AT RISK VOLUME FOR EXTERNAL BEAM RADIATION THERAPY IN PROSTATE CANCER AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO VOLUMES DEFINED BY CLINICAL PRACTICE

    University essay from

    Author : Dang Thao; [2022-01-13]
    Keywords : Medical physics; Radiation therapy; Prostate cancer; Organs at risk;

    Abstract : Background/ Purpose: In radiation therapy (RT), the radiation dose calculated in tumours and normal tissue depends on how the volumes are defined. It is difficult to standardize how tumour volumes should be defined because their anatomical extension can differ greatly between individuals. READ MORE

  5. 5. Measuring natural hemispheric asymmetry in the brain: quantifying the Yakovlevian torque phenomenon

    University essay from

    Author : Hannah Moeini; [2022-01-13]
    Keywords : Medical physics; cerebral asymmetry; yakovlevian torque; petalia occipital bending;

    Abstract : Background: Just by a cursory examination, the two hemispheres of the human brain may appear as mirror images of one another. Yet, the left and right sides exhibit profound differences in anatomy. One of the most obvious expressions of hemispheric asymmetry is the counterclockwise rotation of the brain known as “Yakovlevian torque”. READ MORE
