  1. 1. Development of osmo- and appetite regulation during transfer of smolt from freshwater to increasing salinities

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet / Institutionen för biologi och miljövetenskap

    Author : Jonna Hellesten; [2023-01-26]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) is common in Scandinavian aquaculture and must be transferred from freshwater to seawater to grow properly. Despite being assessed as ready smolts, meaning they have gone through the physiological changes to prepare for SW transfer, the transfer result in a mortality rate of around 13-19%, and significant appetite- and growth reductions.

  2. 2. 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.

  3. 3. Designing a kidney perfusion machine

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Produktutveckling

    Author : Tove Rassmus; [2022]
    Keywords : usability; reliability; kidney perfusion; interaction; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Today, it is difficult to take care of organs that could have been donated to patients. In Sweden around 92 000 people die every year yet less than 200 of them become kidney donors. UGLK Science AB has developed a patented technology for restoring kidney function which increases the time window for donations significantly. READ MORE

  4. 4. Endothelial Protein C Receptor : Expression in the murine kidney

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för farmaceutisk biovetenskap

    Author : Lina Molin; [2022]
    Keywords : Endothelial protein C receptor; murine kidney; murine kidney endothelial cells; glomerular cells; flow cytometry; western blot; dot blot; SDS-PAGE; murine kidney tissue;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to investigate if the endothelial protein C receptor is expressed in the murine kidney. This was done by performing flow cytometry and Western blot analysis on cultivated murine kidney endothelial cells (mKECs) as well as SDS-PAGE and Western blot analysis on murine kidney tissue.

  5. 5. Biologically informed neural network for subphenotype classification in septic AKI

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : Erik Hartman; [2022]
    Keywords : Machine learning; neural networks; proteomics; sepsis; AKI; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Sepsis is a life threatening condition where the body’s reaction to an infection results in a dysregulated immune response - ultimately causing damage to tissues and organs. The syndrome is diverse, both in underlying biology, disease manifestation and severity, and is therefore divided into endotypes and further into subphenotypes. READ MORE
