    Keywords : COVID-19; attitudes towards vaccination; vaccination willingness; economic preferences; risk preferences; risk aversion; ambiguity preferences; ambiguity aversion; other regarding preferences; altruism; freeriding; conditional cooperation;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between economic preferences and attitudes towards vaccination against COVID-19. These relationships are important to explore in order to design correct and effective vaccination policies that can increase vaccination willingness and decrease vaccination hesitancy. READ MORE

  2. 2. JOURNAL REPUTATION AND JOURNAL ARTICLE QUALITY FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF EDUCATIONAL RESEARCHERS AT A SWEDISH UNIVERSITY

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för pedagogik och specialpedagogik

    Author : Astrid Karina Wingard; [2022-01-27]
    Keywords : Publication Outlets; Journal Article Quality; Research Quality; Educational Research;

    Abstract : Aim: Starting from some follow-up research questions such as for instance how authors determine the scholarly ‘quality’ of their own and others’ outputs, and whether they include bibliometric indicators in that assessment, this qualitative study is aimed at a modest ambition: to seek the reasons behind educational researchers’ decision to publish their texts in certain journals, and how they, as educational researchers, judge the quality of a journal article. Theory: Since research work and knowledge acquisition are not purely carried out individually, Social Epistemology theory developed by Alvin Goldman is used as a framework of this study to examine educational researchers’ knowledge about the quality of research.

  3. 3. Evaluation of whole-body bone scans performed using a gamma camera with Cadmium Zinc Telluride detector

    University essay from

    Author : Victor Asp; [2022-01-13]
    Keywords : Medical physics; whole-body bone scans; gamma camera; Cadmium Zinc Telluride detector;

    Abstract : The bone scan is a common nuclear medicine imaging procedure that is mainly used for evaluating several oncological patient groups. A radioactive tracer, 99mTc -labelled diphosphonate, is injected intravenously and accumulates in the skeleton. The distribution of the tracer in the body is measured with a gamma camera 3 hours post-injection. 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. Establishment of a deep learning algorithm for dosimetry of radiopharmaceuticals

    University essay from

    Author : Dennis Lipnicevic; [2022-01-13]
    Keywords : Medical physics; automated segmentation; dosimetry; kidney; nuclear medicine dosimetry; deep learning; convolutional neural network;

    Abstract : Purpose: The aim of this study was to introduce a volumetric convolutional neural network for segmentation of the kidneys in SPECT images and to apply it in the dosimetry of radiopharmaceuticals of this organ, in order to decrease segmentation time and to standardize the segmentation of the kidneys. Method: Three networks were trained using two network architectures and a total of 216 retrospectively collected images from patients that underwent imaging procedures at Sahlgrenska University Hospital between 2009 and 2018.
