    Sammanfattning : The aim of the project was to compare the workflow for an Elekta Linac with and without the surfacescanning system Catalyst and describe pros and cons with both workflows. The findings in the reportcan be used as decision support in development of Elekta products and workflow improvements. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Immediate breast reconstruction after mastectomy at Örebro University Hospital

    Master-uppsats, Örebro universitet/Institutionen för medicinska vetenskaper

    Författare :Linneá Larsson; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Breast cancer; Immediate breast reconstruction; Mastectomy; Contraindications; Radiotherapy;

    Sammanfattning : Abstract Introduction Immediate breast reconstruction (IBR) can be offered to breast cancer patients after mastectomy. A satisfactory breast symmetry has positive effects on psychosocial morbidity, quality of life and body image. The frequency of IBR were in 2017 in Region Örebro County 4%, lower than the national target on 20%. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Geant4 Simulations of Hadron Therapy and Refinement of User Interface

    Kandidat-uppsats, KTH/Medicinteknik och hälsosystem; KTH/Medicinteknik och hälsosystem
