  • Strategies to improve outcome after islet transplantation using the GLP-1 receptor agonist, extendin-4 

    Sharma, Amit (Institutionen för klinisk vetenskap / Department of Clinical Sciences, 2007-05-04)
    Transplantation of pancreatic islets into the liver via the portal vein has emerged as a treatment option for patients with type I diabetes mellitus. However, loss of functional beta cell mass during isolation and following ...
  • Icodextrin metabolism in peritoneal dialysis : Clinical and experimental studies 

    García López, Elvia (Institutionen för klinisk vetenskap / Department of Clinical Sciences, 2005-08-31)
    Icodextrin (ICO, or polyglucose) is an effective osmotic agent for peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients (pts). ICO is a soluble polymeric form of glucose with an average molecular 'weight range from 13,000 to 19,000 dalton. ...
  • Renal Klotho in mineral metabolism 

    Amin, Risul (Inst för klinisk vetenskap, intervention och teknik / Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology, 2014-02-27)
    Calcium and phosphorous are critical elements in a number of physiological processes, including maintenance of bone structure, cell signaling and energy metabolism. Their endocrine regulation is tightly controlled through ...
  • The expression of the structural proteins Dendrin and Neph1 in the glomerular filtration barrier in proteinuria 

    Hulkko, Jenny (Inst för klinisk vetenskap, intervention och teknik / Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology, 2014-01-22)
    Background In the normal kidney, the glomerular filtration barrier successfully clears about one litre blood per minute. Damage to the filtration barrier might lead to protein leakage in the urine – proteinuria. The ...
  • Radiographic quality workflow : in the digitized healthcare environment 

    Hillergård, Kerstin (Inst för klinisk vetenskap, intervention och teknik / Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology, 2013-10-04)
    This thesis emphasizes two different aspects — how radiographers use knowledge in image production work and perceive a radiographic quality workflow in the digitized healthcare environment using PACS — both because these ...
  • Consequences of outsourcing referrals for magnetic resonance examinations 

    Tavakol Olofsson, Parvin (Inst för klinisk vetenskap, intervention och teknik / Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology, 2012-11-22)
    Background: Rapid developments in imaging technology affecting its day-to-day clinical use continue to increase the workload in diagnostic radiology. Along with demands for ever more effective healthcare, these are two ...
  • Optimization of intravenous contrast media at computed tomography 

    Svensson, Anders (Inst för klinisk vetenskap, intervention och teknik / Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology, 2012-05-09)
    The administration of intravenous contrast media (IV CM) is essential for detecting lesions at most computed tomography (CT) examinations. The overall aim of this thesis is to investigate different aspects of IV CM ...
  • Peripheral venous catheters : Quality of care assessment 

    Ahlqvist, Margary (Institutionen för klinisk vetenskap / Department of Clinical Sciences, 2009-12-31)
    About half of the patients admitted to hospitals receive intravenous therapy through peripheral venous catheters (PVCs). Unfortunately, the use of PVCs is associated with the risk of complications that may lead to increased ...
  • Digital imaging use : Influence of digitalization on radiographers´ work practice and knowledge demands 

    Larsson, Wiveca (Institutionen för klinisk vetenskap / Department of Clinical Sciences, 2009-02-20)
    The aim: The purpose of this ethnographic study was to show how the radiographer s work practice and knowledge demands change in the transformation from analogue to distributed work. Method: The study adopts a qualitative ...
  • The wind of change : Individuals change when technology change 

    Fridell, Kent (Institutionen för klinisk vetenskap / Department of Clinical Sciences, 2007-11-26)
    The production of digital images has been well-known within radiology for many years through its use of modalities such as computer tomography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance tomography. During the latter part of the ...
