• Sex-specific associations between oral health and cardiovascular risk profile in the population-based Tromsø Study 7 

    Elawady, Ahmed (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2020-12-04)
    Introduction: cardiovascular disease (CVD) is one of the major causes of death in the world. Many studies have linked CVD with periodontitis which is oral inflammatory disease. But those studies didn´t take into consideration the overall oral health as one confounder that can be linked to CVD, not just periodontitis. Objective: the main aim was to study the sex-specific association between variables ...
  • Chronic Pelvic Pain in women. Group based multimodal physical therapy 

    Nygaard, Ane Sigrid (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2021-02-26)
    <p><i>Introduction - </i>The aims of this thesis were (1) to describe the characteristics of women with chronic pelvic pain (CPP) referred for physical therapy after evaluation at a tertiary hospital, (2) to compare group-based multimodal physical therapy (intervention group) with primary care physical therapy (comparator group), and (3) to explore if selected pre-treatment characteristics were ...
  • Group-based multimodal physical therapy in women with chronic pelvic pain: A randomized controlled trial 

    Nygaard, Ane Sigrid; Rydningen, Mona Birgitte; Stedenfeldt, Mona; Wojniusz, Slawomir; Larsen, Marthe; Lindsetmo, Rolv-Ole; Haugstad, Gro Killi; Øian, Pål (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-05-09)
    <p><i>Introduction - </i>Chronic pelvic pain in women is a complex condition, and physical therapy is recommended as part of a broader treatment approach. The objective of this study was to compare structured group‐based multimodal physical therapy in a hospital setting (intervention group) with primary‐care physical therapy (comparator group) for women with chronic pelvic pain. <p><i>Material and ...
  • Can private provision of primary care contribute to the spread of antibiotic resistance? A study of antibiotic prescription in Sweden 

    Granlund, David; Zykova, Yana V. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-10-23)
    <p><i>Background - </i>Growing rates of antibiotic resistance, caused by increasing antibiotic use, pose a threat by making antibiotics less effective in treating infections. <p><i>Objective - </i>We aimed to study whether physicians working at privately and publicly owned health centres differed in the likelihood of prescribing antibiotics and choosing broad-spectrum over narrow-spectrum ...
  • Snow avalanche segmentation in SAR images with Fully Convolutional Neural Networks 

    Bianchi, Filippo Maria; Grahn, Jakob; Eckerstorfer, Markus; Malnes, Eirik; Vickers, Hannah (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-11-10)
    Knowledge about frequency and location of snow avalanche activity is essential for forecasting and mapping of snow avalanche hazard. Traditional field monitoring of avalanche activity has limitations, especially when surveying large and remote areas. In recent years, avalanche detection in Sentinel-1 radar satellite imagery has been developed to improve monitoring. However, the current state-of-the-art ...
