    Author : Jonathan Stewart; [2022]
    Keywords : patient safety; medical error; hospitals; disclosure; communication; FLMU06; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : This thesis investigated why U.S. hospitals that had committed to implementing communication and resolution programs (CRPs) did not consistently apply their programs when patient harm events occurred. READ MORE

  2. 2. Capacitive Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducers for Underwater Applications

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för fysik och astronomi

    Author : Patrick Johansson; [2021]
    Keywords : CMUT; capacitive; micromachined; ultrasonic; transducer; model;

    Abstract : Capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers (CMUT:s) are often used in medical imaging and they show some promise as underwater transducers. This thesis collates the available information about how CMUT:s operate, their strengths and weaknesses and investigates their efficiency as an underwater transducer. READ MORE

  3. 3. Forecasting COVID-19 hospitalizations using dynamic regression with ARIMA errors

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Statistiska institutionen; Uppsala universitet/Statistiska institutionen

    Author : Ingrid Heed; Karl Lindberg; [2021]
    Keywords : forecasting; COVID-19; dynamic regression;

    Abstract : For more than a year, COVID-19 has changed societies all over the world and put massive strains on its healthcare systems. In an attempt to aid in prioritizing medical resources, this thesis uses dynamic regression with ARIMA errors to forecast the number of hospitalizations related to COVID-19 two weeks ahead in Uppsala County.

  4. 4. Characterization of Center-of-Mass and Rebinning in Positron Emission Tomography with Motion

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Linder Hugo; [2021]
    Keywords : positron emission tomography; center of mass; motion correction;

    Abstract : Medical molecular imaging with positron emission tomography (PET) is sensitive to patient motion since PET scans last several minutes. Despite advancements in PET, such as improved photon-pair time-of-flight (TOF) difference resolution, motion deformations limit image resolution and quantification. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cryoballoon Catheters with sensors for treatment of AF

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Axel Anderberg; [2021]
